Argento's debut wasn't the slasher-horror he's now famous for, but a *3giallo2 thriller in which an American writer witnesses a knife attack and tries to track down the killer before he and his lover become the next victims. Stylish red herrings and set-pieces, plus a Morricone score and Storaro photography make this an effective piece.
