Dario Argento's Deep Red Friday at Cult Fiction Underground

Posted By on Thu, May 15, 2014 at 11:05 AM

Giallo maestro Dario Argento's best films zero in on an audience’s most squeamish spots — specifically the vulnerability of (ick) eyes. 1975’s Deep Red (Profondo Rosso) is one of his best, a hatchet-murder shocker starring David Hemmings, gallons of gore, an unnerving Goblin prog-rock score and an infernal chattering doll that will haunt your nightmares. It's the rare movie we prefer in the chopped-to-hell U.S. version, which wisely whacks entire scenes of stilted exposition.

It's the feature Friday night in the Cult Fiction Underground grindhouse bunker under Logue's Black Raven Emporium, 2915 Gallatin Rd. Saturday brings another descent into the maelstrom of unspeakable horror, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Show times are 8 and 10 p.m. for both films; admission both nights is $5.
