Argento's US giallo film. I saw this for the first time 6 years ago and I felt it was time for a re-watch.
Argento's trademark camera work is there but the violence has been toned down for the states (it's still violent but lacks the gory punch his previous films had) It also has some pacing issues and some uneven acting.
But the finale ties everything together beautifully and the mystery is a satisfying and compelling one.
"Ruby Rain" is also a great musical track.
Not as entertaining (or nasty) as Argento's other US production (his segment of Two Evil Eyes) but still a fun and satisfying murder mystery.
