The most stylishly executed killings of Giallo?
« on: 08 Aug 2008 - 05:32 »

Thinking about some the most creatively executed and stylishly shot kills of Giallo... 

Your favourites?

A few that come to mind...  (no spoilers intended!)
     - Profondo Rosso:  the scene with the mechanical doll and fireplace/mantle!
     - Four Flies On Grey Velvet: slow-mo decapitation!
     - The Red Queen Kills Seven Times: the slip of a ladder onto the pointy fence, car drag!
     - Death Wears High Heels: The joker-smile knife carving on the face of Vanessa Matthews
     - Suspiria - Woman falling from stain glass window
     - Cat o' Nine Tails - The fall in the elevator
      - Bay Of Blood - The scene of the woman in the wheel chair

Countless others I am forgetting at the moment...

No mention of the lesbian murders in Tenebre?

Not only was it stylish as hell (with a thumping score from Goblin/Simmonetti) it was also quite a techincal feat at the time. Whatever happened to Dario? (no, don't answer that question!)
