From Dario Argento, the Master of Suspense Who Gave You THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE – The Picture That Out-Psychoed PSYCHO!
When a simple robbery at a research institute leads to a series of brutal murders, a blind puzzle maker (Academy Award® winner Karl Malden of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE) and a tenacious reporter (James Franciscus of BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES) begin their own investigation of the crimes. With nine different clues to follow, they uncover a shocking web of twisted genetics and dark sexual secrets that will finally lead them to a shattering climax of violence and suspense.
Originally released in 1971, THE CAT O’NINE TAILS secured the international reputation of director Dario Argento as ‘The Italian Hitchcock.’ This is the definitive version of Argento’s masterful second film, presented completely uncut and uncensored in a brand-new High Definition transfer from its original camera negative!

Several years later, Dario Argento said that "The Cat o' Nine Tails" was one of his least favorite films. To him, it was because the movie was too influenced by American cinema rather than with an Italian perspective. As for Daria Nicolodi, she said, in Profondo Rosso's making of, that it was because Dario had less time to polish and enrich "The Cat o' Nine Tails" like he did for "The Bird With the Crystal Plumage". Which is explainable as the movie was shot in September and October 1970 and the movie released in February 1971. Giving it a very rushed production. But in comparison to his 1990s and 2000s movies which have been criticized for their lack of precision and lazy writing, I think "The Cat o' Nine Tails" displays what was the best in Argento. Action, suspense, excellent camera angles, a very good script, excellent cinematography and editing. Collaborators that have enriched his work with their personal touch.Read more ›
Anchor bay Entertainment has provided us with an enriched DVD, full of extras and interesting information. The video is clean and pure, and those colors...so tremendously 70's!!! The audio section comprises three different tracks: English, Italian and French, all of them in Dolby Sorround 2.0.
The extra features are divided into an interesting interview involving director Dario Argento, writer Dardano Sacchetti and music composer Ennio Morricone, different trailers,TV and radio spots, still gallery and talent bios. Last but not least, a juicy double radio interview with James Franciscus and Karl Malden recorded at the beginning of the 70's, when THE CAT landed overseas. Great movie, great package. You won't be disappointed

Cat o' Nine Tails is generally considered second-tier Argento. In fact, Argento himself isn't too jazzed on it. But I find it to be an excellent Hitchcock-inspired suspense film. Read morePublished on Feb. 5 2003 by Garry Messick
