Product Description

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!

I had read somewhere that Dario himself didn't think highly of this film and Maltin rates it a BOMB. I was sceptical when I rented this one but in the end I was relieved that I did. It's actually quite good and it has a cohesive plot that keeps you guessing 'till the very end. There's no gore here to speak of but Argento keeps things lively from start to finish and the actors here are amazingly good (compared to many other Argento films). Check it out, it certainly doesn't deserve a BOMB rating, and also, it seems that Dario is never entirely satisfied with his old films, apperently he can't even watch them on t.v.

I had many difficulties to see this movie from Dario Argento because it was not easy to find it in my country, but when I finally saw it, it really surprised me. Like THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE this second film from the Italian Master of Horror is very impressive. Again Dario used a calculating and very complicated plot, even more than in THE BIRD... This time with more colors and a fabulous score from Ennio Morricone. A great thriller even if Dario thinks it is his most disappointing film.

Dario Argento fans have nothing to fear, Anchor Bay has done justice to this film. The video transfer from Anchor Bay is simply amazing and the digital 2.0 sound is great. Anchor Bay has given Dario Argento fans "The Cat O' Nine Tails" in it's 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen format. The pristine video transfer is presented in all it's remastered, uncut and unedited glory. In my opinion the acting in this film is outstanding for a film from the 1970's. I think all the actors gave a solid performance in their roles and this film kept me guessing until the very end. I knew nothing about this movie until I picked it up at used DVD store, but it has quickly become one of my favorite movies. Whether you're a hardcore or casual Argento fan, this movie is definitely worth seeing. As a bonus some nice extra's have been included in this DVD version.

After the international and incredible success Dario Argento had with "The Bird With the Crystal Plumage", the italian director and scriptwriter shot "The Cat o' Nine Tails". Another giallo. Involving this time the scientific environment; a new chromosome discovery that could identify potential criminal individuals. One that has gotten employees connected to a genetic clinic either wounded or murdered. Where Franco Arno, a blind man who lives near the clinic, falls into. Along with his niece Lori, whom he has adopted after she lost her relatives, and a journalist called Carlo Giordani. A man who decides join his own investigation with Arno. Away from the police. While getting information that reveal a very dangerous underworld. Secrets and taboos that could cost him and his new friends' lives.

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.

Second chapter of the so-called "Animal Trilogy" (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Cat O'Nine Tails, Four Flies on Grey Velvet), this film is a little miracle. The possibility that a twist of our genes could lead to madness should keep us far from hospitals for a long time...
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
