Beguiling, sensuous and bloody as hell, Dario Argento’s Deep Red (1975) is a classic of horror cinema. Key to its power is the eerie, keyboard-heavy score by Claudio Simonetti and his band Goblin: circling rhythms, trebly electronic shimmers and haunting melodies work with Argento’s images for a swoony, sinister effect. Now VIFF audiences will get to feel that effect as few others have, with a live scoring of the movie by Simonetti and the band, who will also play an extra set of their soundtrack classics.
