Profondo Rosso was giallo-auteur Dario Argento’s biggest success to date and allowed him to pursue what would be his masterpiece 2 years later — Suspiria. The film also starred David Hemmings, who both brought a big name to the production, but also played a character with direct parallels to his famous photographer character in Antonioni’s Blow-Up. Both characters are professionals who inadvertently witness murders. And while Dario Argento’s subjects and stories varied wildly through his career, his outstanding visual style created a common thread in this work and it’s on full display in Deep Red.
This country-of-origin Italian poster has amazing Vertigo-inspired art. The center circle is printed in day-glo inks giving it a nice pop in person as well!
