The Cat o' Nine Tails

"OK"

The Cat o' Nine Tails Review


One of Dario Argento's better horror flicks -- helped amiably by Karl Malden as a blind crossword puzzle creator who, with the help of a local reporter, stumbles into a murder mystery, replete with creepy, dubbed Italians. Ultimately, Malden ends up in a supporting role, but the lively story, impressive close-up gore sequences (watch early on as a train runs down one poor sap), and at least moderately interesting twists make it worthwhile.

Aka Il Gatto a nove code.
