Short on ideas.

Dario Argento's undistinguished Italian thriller was an unexpected hit in 1969, thanks largely, one suspects, to some violent scenes that were unusually graphic for their time.
October 23, 2004
Its scares are on a much more basic level than in, say, a thriller by Hitchcock. It works mostly by exploiting our fear of the dark.

October 6, 2013
A glossy, stylistic, cosmopolitan and jagged mystery firmly entrenched in Hitchcockian paranoia.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 15, 2009
Vivid mayhem
May 31, 2009
One of the most self-assured debuts of all time, a work so certain in its conception and execution that almost 40 years later I'd still quickly rank it as one of Argento's finest.

Dario Argento came into his own with this outstanding widescreen Italian suspense flick in which an American writer witnesses a murder through a huge plate glass window.

... the story is only a structure for Argento to spin his painstakingly choreographed visions of violence and terror with a fluid camera and carefully controlled colors.
June 15, 2005
Terrifying and tense in a Hitchcock way.

April 15, 2012
A watchable serial murderer-search movie, even if not the stuff of cult status.
October 26, 2001
While Plumage may not demand active spectatorship, the two-killer theory of Tenebre and Stendhal Syndrome makes its first appearance in an Argento film.

Early Argento and a pretty stylish thriller.

June 24, 2006
Now king of the spaghetti slasher, Argento made his directorial debut with this tightly constructed thriller.
October 6, 2013
A smart, cosmopolitan, thoroughly modern whodunit comprised of geometric visuals and pulsating sexual violence.
March 10, 2003
One of Argento's earliest films, this is the one that launched the director on the horror track.
May 9, 2005
[It] has the energy to support its elaborateness and the decency to display its devices with style. Something from each of its better models has stuck, and it is pleasant to rediscover old horrors in such handsome new décor.

December 4, 2005
The genius of Argento once upon a time was the understanding that every mystery is, at its essence, existential and subjective.
