Four Flies on Grey Velvet Synopsis

The rarest of Dario Argento’s giallo thrillers, released in its original glory from restored vault materials, finally comes to VOD.


Who is the deranged maniac persecuting and mentally torturing celebrated rock musician Roberto Tobias (Michael Brandon)? First he’s implicated in a horrifying stabbing and is soon surrounded by other senseless slaughter. The last strange image captured on one murder victim’s eye retina contains the only clue to the demented criminal manipulator. And their identity will take Roberto over the edge of sanity to a shock horror peak in Dario Argento’s classic giallo chiller.


This homicidal frenzy completed Argento’s revered ‘Animal’ trilogy (alongside THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE and CAT O’ NINE TAILS) that dubbed him ‘The Italian Hitchcock’, leading to SUSPIRIA and his worldwide ‘Master of Horror’ reputation. And Argento’s unmistakable flair for creating fear in lavish style is on stunning show in this slick, sick primal scream – with a shattering slow-motion climax given further operatic violence by one of genius Ennio Morricone’s most memorable scores.

A young musician hires an investigator to help him discover the identity of a sinister stalker who has been sending him death threats. \r\n\r\nProbably one of Argento’s wackiest films, Four Flies on Grey Velvet is at times quite scary, but more often funny, becoming absurdly ridiculous as the film progresses - any sense of a logical plot is eventually dispensed with altogether. This perhaps adds to our enjoyment of this fun giallo parody, however, in which Argento invites us to laugh at the genre conventions many of his films helped to establish.
