The Bird With the Crystal Plumage

1h 36m Crime, Giallo 1970

AroView: The milestone debut from the supreme Italian horror-meister Dario Argento, this set the pattern for his many subsequent forays into stylishly macabre suspense and carnage such as DEEP RED and SUSPIRIA.

Set around the efforts of an American writer (Musante) to track down a knife-wielding serial killer - whose handiwork he may have witnessed - he and his girlfriend become embroiled in a maze of red herrings and attacks in darkened rooms. Although more Hitchcockian than later works, this rewards with some fiendishly-devised set pieces.
