Following the success of his debut feature, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, distributor Titanus tasked writer/director Dario Argento with delivering a follow-up in short order. The resulting film, granted a greatly enhanced budget and heralded in its US marketing campaign as “nine times more suspenseful” than its predecessor, was THE CAT O' NINE TAILS.
This second entry in the so-called “Animal Trilogy” found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak (IL SORPASSO) and Rada Rassimov (BARON BLOOD), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone (THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, THE THING), THE CAT O' NINE TAILS remains one of Argento’s most suspenseful and underrated films.
