She's So Giallo: Four Flies on Grey Velvet (15) + Introduction by Alan Jones

Lost for nearly 30 years and regarded as  Dario Argento’s masterpiece, Michael Brandon and Mimsy Farmer star in this rarely seen cult horror.
Roberto (Brandon), a drummer in a rock band, finds himself embroiled in a nightmare when he is framed for killing a mysterious man who has been stalking him. But Roberto’s troubles get worse when he’s blackmailed by an unknown killer who is knocking off his friends, one by one. Turning to his wife, Nina (Farmer), Roberto struggles to identify who he can really trust.
Featuring a playful score by Ennio Morricone’s and innovative cinematography from Franco Di Giacomo, this suspense-filled drama has rightly cemented itself as one of Argento's greatest giallo features.
We are delighted to be joined by Alan Jones who will introduce the screening.
