An American expatriate in Rome witnesses an attempted murder. He learns later that it's connected to an ongoing murder spree in the city, and decides to do his own investigation, despite being personally targeted by the killer.
Enrico Maria Salerno
A newspaper reporter and a retired, blind journalist try to solve a series of killings connected to a pharmaceutical company's experimental, top-secret research projects and in so doing, both become targets of the killer.
A young man tries to help a teenage European girl who escaped from a clinic hospital after witnessing the murder of her parents by a serial killer and they try to find the killer before the killer finds them.
A young opera singer (Betty) gets her big chance when the previous star of a production of Verdi's Macbeth is run over by a car. Convinced the opera is bad luck she accepts, and becomes the target (in Argento's unmistakable style) of a psychopath - a man she has been dreaming of since childhood.Written by

There has frequently been controversy about the film's aspect ratio since it was shot in the Super 35 process and released both in 2,35:1 and 1,85:1 on DVD with the general conclusion being that 2,35:1 was the ratio intended by Dario Argento since he had the film shown that way on various festivals and obviously chose to use Super 35 himself for this film.

This movie was atmospheric from the beginning. It had very strong suspense scenes that made it to a good horror movie experience. There are several times when I worried for the protagonist victims. That's when I thought: "No, please! Stand it! Don't close your eyes!" There are pretty sadistic torturing scenes in it. You better don't watch it, if you're sensible about that. There is blood and gore, but the atmosphere makes the horror taking an effect on the audience. It's an 80s horror movie gem, which I recommend to watch for horror movie fans! All sensible persons shouldn't watch that.
