Deep Red (Profondo Rosso)

Having a bad day? Yours might actually look really terrific after you watch Italian director Dario Argento’s 1975 classic horror film Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), screening today at Domy Books. The colorful film follows a music teacher as he investigates the gruesome murder of a psychic. Argento is especially known for his extremely protracted, blood-and-gore-filled murder scenes; folks don’t take a neat bullet and drift away — they’re often half-killed four or five times (in four or five ways) before meeting their hard-earned end in some supremely grisly manner. The film includes a trippy experimental rock score and a freaky, freaky doll killer that makes Chucky look like Bambi. 8:30 p.m. 1709 Westheimer.
