Product Description

Customer Reviews

Let's skip over the fact that this is Argento's greatest work and possibly one of the best Giallo films ever made.

I can see how people feel either way on this, it does make the pacing of the film slightly faster, but I think it you lose some character development.
David T.
Like Hitchcock's Vertigo, the logic of many of these films' narrative plot were secondary to the emotional mood and visual poetry on display.

"Deep Red" is without a doubt Dario Argento's masterpiece. With a very clear (for Argento) storyline, absolutely dazzling camerawork and an unforgettable score by Goblin (which is bound to sound incredible in 5.1), "Deep Red" is a must for the horror aficionado, especially those with an interest in films that are historically relevant. "Deep Red" is the "Psycho" of Italian cinema. Back in 1975, when it came out, graphic gore was mostly relegated to ultra low-budget movies where carnage was the only point of the movie. With "Deep Red", Argento took gore in a completely new direction, mixing it with classy cinematography and a complex story, and unleashing it upon unsuspecting stars of the Italian stage and screen, people so prestigious in their own way you would never expect them to get it the way they do in a movie. The uncut widescreen version of this film, which has been long overdue in America, will reveal to those who have only seen it in pan-and-scan form the artistry and complexity of Argento's Technovision images. The previously unreleased footage, which I have seen and which was truncated from the version that has been in circulation in this country for decades, adds depth to the characters and the story. In my opinion, you should preferably watch this in Italian with English subtitles -- the English dubbing is atrocious and the Italian original is far more poetic-sounding and apropriate to the story and, besides, Anchor Bay is releasing the added footage in Italian because there is no English dub of those scenes, so you might as well watch it all in its original language. At any rate, this is a must for everyone who appreciates good scary movies, for anyone with an eye for truly spectacular filmmaking and especially for anyone who thinks European movies means Truffaut. An absolute must-have!

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
After reading a few negative reviews of this release, I'm just throwing my two cents in. I should point out that I'm a huge Argento fan (one of my all time favorite directors) and that unlike some people I've been very pleased with every single Argento-Blue Underground release.

First off, I've watched both versions of the film on this bluray disk, the picture quality is very good. I was slightly disappointed that it didn't make a major leap forward from the old DVDs like I experienced when first watching the blurays of Stendhal Syndrome or Inferno, but I pulled out my old Anchor Bay DVD (the one mentioned by the other reviewer) and watched the first 10 minutes of the DVD vs the Bluray back to back and the bluray is substantially better picture quality wise(don't get me wrong the PQ is very good on this release just with some of the others it felt like I was seeing the film for the first time).

Next since I've seen the uncut Italian version countless times, I was looking forward to finally seeing a quality release of the Uncut English version. I can confirm that as best as I can tell all the gore in intact. The things which seem to be cut are some of the Hemmings pianist scenes. I can see how people feel either way on this, it does make the pacing of the film slightly faster, but I think it you lose some character development. After seeing this, personally I still prefer the 126 minute version.

As for the dvd having only the uncut english version, as someone else pointed out Blue Underground a couple of years ago released the Uncut Italian version already on DVD. Just get the other edition, or move up to the bluray.

Having seen the Italian version many times, I was pretty excited to get to watch it with full Italian audio and English subs.

Unlike many who have posted here, I HAVE seen the full 126minute version of Deep Red, on a badly copied conversion inpan-and-scan - and let me tell you, even in this form it was still one of the most exciting movies I think I've ever seen. Although a couple of decades of film has probably blunted the shock and gore elements, and all those character moments might make it seem slow, I promise you that this movie will freak you in ways few horror movies will. Dario Argento's reputation rests entirely on this film and Suspiria, but this one is the superior. All the best elements of his previous films are combined here - the protagonist who's seen something important he can't identify, killers with a fetish for black gloves, vague hints of the supernatural, gender transgression..... and of coursre the gore. Believe me, you'll think twice about checking the door locks after dark when you see what happens to Helga the psychic. Argento was never this suspenseful again, probably because Mark (the protagonist), like the audience, knows he has to solve the mystery before the killer will ever leave him alone. The DVD release of DEEP RED is a real event, and Goblin's score presented in Dolby Digital would be worth it all by itself! I can't wait until release day...........

This is not, as "Satisfied Reader" claims, a censored version of Argento's masterwork "Deep Reed". It is the uncensored "long" English language version of the film, cut by Argento himself for the film's American release. Gone are all the hideously draggy comedy scenes between David Hemmings and Daria Nicolodi that bog down the 126 minute Italian version, still present is all the lovely viscera that made the rosso so profondo to begin with. This is the definitive version of the film, perfectly paced, no fat. It is not "censored", and for what it's worth, Argento has stated that this is his preferred cut of the film.
