We gave it a B+

Dario Argento has been cranking out hypnotically weird thrillers since the late ’60s. And while Four Flies on Grey Velvet isn’t his best, its long absence from DVD has made it the Holy Grail for fans of the ”Italian Hitchcock.” Brandon plays a groovy drummer stalked by a mysterious killer in black. But who…and why? You’ll never guess. Don’t even try. Yes, the acting is wooden, but the rest (including an eerie Ennio Morricone score) is so stylish and fun you won’t care. EXTRAS include the trippy Italian trailer. B+
