Welcome Strade  ::)

Thanks! I'm currently on a quest to watch as many gialli as humanly possible.

I have much to learn from you all.  ;)

I discovered or re-discovered a few Gialli recently, I though I would update my "favorite" list.

As time goes by, the holy trinity - Bava, Argento and Fulci - slowly disappear from my TOP10. It's strange...

01: THE PERFUME OF THE LADY IN BLACK (Francesco Barilli, 1974)
A little jewel from one of my favorite Italian director. Elegant and hypnotic.

02: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE? (Massimo Dallamano, 1972)
An excellent Giallo. Strong story, strong cast, beautiful photography.

03: THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS WARDH (Sergio Martino, 1970)
One of the most entertaining Gialli. Erotic, violent, twisted. A classic, with Italy's most memorable scream queen, Edwige Fenech.

04: PROFONDO ROSSO (Dario Argento, 1975)
Argento's Masterpiece. A fascinating work of art that deserves its iconic status.

05: LA CASA DALLE FINESTRE CHI RIDONO (Pupi Avati, 1976)
La Casa is a door... to something really disturbing. A haunted movie, unforgettable.

06: ENIGMA ROSSO (Alberto Negrin, 1978)
It falls apart in the end, but the first 45 minutes are brilliant. It's intense, dark and disturbing.

07: L'ASSASSINO E COSTRETTO AD UCCIDERE ANCORA (Luigi Cozzi, 1975)
A solid thriller, dynamic and clever. Antoine Saint-John delivers a very strong performance.

08: THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (Mario Bava, 1963)
Its suffers from a low ambition, but I enjoy it a lot. My favorite Bava with Operazione Paura.

09: TENEBRE (Dario Argento, 1982)
Vicious, cold, insane. The ultimate Giallo. Argento's last good movie, in my opinion.

10: A BLADE IN THE DARK (Lamberto Bava, 1983)
Silly but hugely entertaining. A guilty pleasure.

Is All the Colors of the Dark considered a giallo? I like this one a lot. Furthermore, I like the Jess Franco entry Bloody Moon. Dunno why that kept with me... Or is this one not considered a giallo either? Guess it's definitely not stereotypical.

This is one boring ass giallo if you ask me: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071537/. Though I dislike many many more...

Another one I DO like, though is Le foto di Gioia by Lamberto Bava http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093043/ Nice 80's flick, and I think my favorite of this director.

A lovely movie that is not considered a giallo by everyone, I think. But actually this one and "Don't torture a duckling" are some of my favorite italian 'cult' movies. I think both are gialli, but theyre both a-typical gialli (or giallos, whatever you prefer).

Lots of Giallos merge into one film in my memory, but are still enjoyable when you're actually watching them.

The seminal Giallos for me are -

Opera.
Blood and Black Lace.
Death Laid an Egg.
Don't Torture a Duckling.
Who Saw Her Die.
Deep Red.
The Fifth Cord.
Perfume of the lady in Black.
The Blood Stained Butterfly.

Guilty Pleasures -

Nothing Underneath.
Giallo A Venezia.
Slaughter Hotel.
Murder Rock.
The New york ripper.
Play Motel.

All the colors of darks despite some horror elements is absolutely a giallo.
Im a big fan too of Bloody moon but i considered that more a slasher than a giallo,but this is my personal point of viewing off course

Have either of these (and Death Laid An Egg) ever seen a legit DVD release? All three of these still elude this giallo maniac.... :)

Death Laid an Egg was released on DVD in Japan by King Records with an English audio track. It has also been released in Italy in a slightly different variant with better picture quality but sadly no English options. A fan DVD of the Japanese DVD exists that includes missing scenes taken from a VHS tape as extras. See the dedicated thread for more information.

Giallo a Venezia has never been officially released in DVD but an excellent fan composite produced by Marc does exist. This was sourced from VHS.

As for Play Motel, only poor quality VHS rips exists. I have an Italian screener taken from VHS and even that is poor quality. A Greek DVD exists but that is sourced from VHS.

I've enjoyed reading through this topic. Many of the lists contained great movies and offered some new titles for me to hunt. I'd like to offer my list.

1. What Have They Done to Your Daughters? (La polizia chiede aiuto)
- Maybe not really the greatest example of giallo films but definitely a great film by Massimo Dallamano.

2. What Have You Done to Solange? (Cosa avete fatto a Solange?)
- A true giallo from Massimo Dallamano. It took a while to get this picture but it really was worth the waiting. Fabio Testi is really good in leading role.

3. Strip Nude for Your Killer (Nude per l'assassino)
- Maybe a bit sleazy but nonetheless effective movie. These are the kind of movies that just wouldn't get made in the US.

4. Seven Blood-Stained Orchids (Sette orchidee macchiate di rosso)
- Good murder mystery. It was some time ago that I watched this for the last time but it's effective every time.

5. Deep Red (Profondo rosso)
- A list wouldn't be complete without something from Dario Argento.

Bubbling under:
Don't Torture a Duckling (Non si sevizia un paperino)
A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin (Lucertola con la pelle di donna)
Perfume of the Lady In Black (Profumo della Signora in Nero)
Blood and Black Lace
The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh (Lo strano vizio della Signora Wardh)

So many out there that could make a top 10. Without Argento and Fulci it would be:

1 Death Walks at Midnight (dir: Luciano Ercoli)
2 The Red Queen Kills Seven Times (dir: Emilio Miraglia)
3 Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods (dir: Sauro Scavolini)
4 The Double, aka La controfigura (dir: Romolo Guerrieri)
5 Short Night of Glass Dolls (dir: Aldo Lado)
6 The Possessed, aka La donna del lago Lago (dir: Luigi Bazzoni, Franco Rossellini)
7 The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh (dir: Sergio Martino)
8 The Fifth Cord (dir: Luigi Bazzoni)
9 The Bloodstained Butterfly (dir: Duccio Tessari)
10 Tropic of Cancer, aka Al tropico del cancro, aka Death in Haiti (dir: Giampaolo Lomi, Edoardo Mulargia) 

With Argento/Fulci reinstated:

1 Tenebrae (dir: Dario Argento)
2 Deep Red (dir: Dario Argento)
3 Opera (dir: Dario Argento)
4 Lizard in a woman's Skin (dir: Lucio Fulci)
5 Death Walks at Midnight (dir: Luciano Ercoli)
6 The Red Queen Kills Seven Times (dir: Emilio Miraglia; OOP NoShame)
7 Love and Death in the Garden of the Gods (dir: Sauro Scavolini)
8 The Double, aka La controfigura (dir: Romolo Guerrieri)
9 Short Night of Glass Dolls (dir: Aldo Lado)
10 Four Flies on Grey Velvet (dir: Dario Argento)
