Dario Argento’s proto-slasher is as much twisty whodunnit as hair-raising horror. A musician (David Hemmings) randomly witnesses a grisly murder and finds himself drawn into the search for the black-gloved serial killer. Between the ghastly homicidal set pieces, style trumps sense. Fortunately, Argento’s restless camera work and trademark grasp of the uncanny leaves him with a strong hand. -LG
