Details

Early Dario Argento thriller.

Karl Malden plays a former newsman, Franco Arno, who has been blinded in an accident, but his thirst for solving puzzles has never been quelled. He overhears a blackmail plot and teams up with an investigative journalist to uncover the truth behind a sinister chain of grisly murders, but that old cat-killer, curiosity, may be the pair's eventual downfall.

This second entry in the so-called Animal Trilogy found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak (Il Sorpasso) and Rada Rassimov (Baron Blood), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly), The Cat O Nine Tails remains one of Argento s most suspenseful and underrated films.

Presented in a brand new 4K restoration packed with extras and including a double-sided poster and 4 original lobby card reproductions.
