Old news to some, but important nevertheless; Media Blasters/Shriek Show are planning to release a remastered DVD of Lucio Fulci’s excellent LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN. They dropped the ball with the last release by including two versions of the film; a widescreen print of the cut, English language version and an uncut Italian print culled from an inferior source (Beta). So, this is great news; the film is a terrific giallo, with the perfect blend of thrills and leaze. Bring it on!

The re-release is still sadly incomplete. I've put together my own restoration  ;)

Very interesting. I'll have to have a look at that next week, mate.

This is the next genre on my list. I only have a handful of giallo's. A friend of mine is totally obssessed with the genre, though.

You're in the right place here Il Commissario... It's a Giallo frenzy round these parts!

It's a natural progression to move from the cop films to the gialli - many are cross overs, like Dallamano's SOLANGE and Martino's SUSPECTED DEATH OF A MINO. I got into the gialli first, and then my interest in cop flicks evolved from that. The gialli tend to be a lot more stylish but many lack the humour that make the cop films so enjoyable.

I've had only a passing interest in the polizio's for the past few years. Too busy amassing various horror and HK martial arts actioners Only within the past year have I been full steam into the cop flicks. As I said before, hands in too many pies...

I can totally see where you're coming from - I have a massive stack of spaghetti westerns to get my teeth into. you've just got to start watching the gialli. Make sure you start with the Argento and Bava films you've not seen, followed by the Fulci, Martino and Lenzi flicks. Others that are worth checking out include: WHO SAW HER DIE, SHORT NIGHT OF THE GLASS DOLLS and the two Massimo Dallamano 'School Girl' gialli - WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE? and WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOUR DAUGHTERS?

Yes, I am quite aware of the background on the titles you mention. I've read numerous articles on them and I have a friend that worships the films.

Just wanted to point you in the direction of the great films to start. There's nothing worse that starting your way through a bunch of films and looking at the weaker ones first - can be a little disheartening.

Michele Soavi's STAGEFRIGHT is also an essential viewing! Surprisingly good for a late 80s film.

that's right - the 80s weren't exactly a vintage time for any Italian exploitation films, were they?

Vintage... no. The "vintage look" and feel that Italian films had was lost during the early 80s. However, there were still great movies being made. As far as gialli go, STAGEFRIGHT is a good example and so is Lamberto Bava's DELIRIUM aka PHOTOS OF GIOIA (out on Media Blasters). The 80s had their own style, that's for sure.

As for the vintage thing- its obviously loved by all members of this forum. However there are times when I am not in a mood for watching vintage stuff and need something "lighter" if you know what I mean- perhaps even some 90s TV movie :-\
