Thoughts on The Cat O'Nine Tails

Saturday, July 24, 2010 3:32 PM By Simon

-Argento's somewhat-typical murder mystery, with a slightly Western feel. I don't like it very much, I'm afraid...perhaps it's the lack of psychotic Goblin music. I mean, there's Ennio Morricone, but it's just not the same.

-Speaking of Morricone, I'm 100% sure at least the DVD menu music was in Kill Bill. And Inglorious Basterds, maybe.

-Wanna know what pisses me off? I've taken a semester of photography, and I can point out all the shit that paparazzi photographer guy does wrong. Like, the reason you leave the door to the darkroom shut is to keep the photo paper from exposure. And you don't smoke in a darkroom. Because, y'know, shit in there is flammable. Even if you don't combust the whole goddamn building, the smoke will kill the negatives. Therefore, I suspect this guy to be a fucking moron.

-How I miss you, Karl Malden.

Definitely not as good as The Bird With The Crystal Plumage... I even liked 4 Flies more than this one. The scene with the poisoned milk made me almost positive that it was an actual evil feline behind all the murder and mayhem.

There are no lesser or greater Argentos; there are only Argentos and they are all good. But no Goblin music? Inexcusable....

By the way, I hope you don;t mind, but I got you a little something:


Hope you like it.

Woah woah woah... I love Goblin as much as the next guy, but the scores Morricone did for Argento are frickin KILLER, and should not be dismissed! Seriously. Now, I've never seen this one (but the description of a Western-like Argento makes me want to run out and get it right now), but Morricone did a lot of his best work for Giallos. Check out the Mondo Morricone box set for 3 discs of amazing, classic, essential proof.

And ff you like the Morricone, you should check out my Spaghetti Western Concept Rap album, called "Showdown at the BK Corral." It's basically a Spaghetti Western over 9 tracks - very influenced by Morricone. I'd love to hear what you think of it! You can download it for free at (a lot cheaper than the Mondo Morricone set)
