Topic: The Cat O'Nine Tails(1971)
I recently bought The Cat O'Nine Tails and watched it last night. The film is Dario Argento's second film and is part of the animal named trilogy which The Bird with the Crystal Plumage was the first one and the last one was Four Flies on Grey Velvet(which I have never seen).
Cat O'Nine Tails wasn't too bad a film. I thought his first film had better characters and plot but this film had more and better kills in it. It's not gory like his later films in the 70's and 80's would be but I still enjoyed it.
Karl Malden stars in it along with James Franciscus. The film is about a medical institute that has a secret formula called XYY theory about the chromosomes of certain people that end up being hard time criminals and such and if they got into the wrong hands then whoever has it coulod make millions. Well someone is after the secret and is killing people to get it.
I thought Karl Malden did a good job in it as the blind puzzle solver. I loved the train kill scene in it.
Any thoughts on this Argento film?
