Modern Ghosts / Ghosts of Today

"Once Marcus manages to secure an LP that contains the killer's lullaby, Professor Giordani recommends that Marcus read "Ghosts of Today and Legends of the Modern Age," by Amanda Righetti. Sitting inside an unusually spacious library chamber, Marcus reads from the book's first chapter ("The House of the Screaming Boy") and comes across a ghoulish tale of ghostly wails and haunting lullabies. Marcus believes this is a clue and begins to search for the house pictured inside the book. Amanda Righetti is about to pay the price for transcribing the killer's dangerous past. Stepping into her country house, she notices a toy baby hanging from a rope. Perturbed though not quite scared senseless, Amanda decides to stay inside her home. Soon the lights go out and Amanda's precious birds turn against her." Description from the plot of Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), dir. Dario Argento, 1975.
