What better way to kick off our Dark December series than with this classic from horror master, Dario Argento!
This simple, Christmas-set slasher begins with the murder of psychic whose body is found by a musician named Marcus (David Hemmings). Marcus feels obligated to track down the killer so he teams up with a notoriety-seeking reporter (Daria Nicolodi) and soon the two realize that the murderer may actually be circling closer and closer to them. It becomes apparent that they must work fast or they might become the maniac’s next victims.
With this movie, Argento perfected the classy, ultra-violent sub-genre that would come to be known as “giallo.” This includes Goblin’s soundtrack, which is a spook-a-delic prog-rock masterpiece that beautifully complements the movie’s dreamy mood.
Get ready to be played like a (Christmas) fiddle! This movie is a real trip!
