    I'm pretty n00b in this genre, but I like what I've seen and I've always planned on getting more into it. For example, I have a Dario Argento Box with 8 movies and 1 documentary, and I've only seen Suspiria and Bird With The Crystal Plumage from it.
    Crystal Plumage was sweet as hell, totally fell in love with it.
    I've also seen Sleepless and Do You Like Hitchcock? from Dario, love them both.

    Fulci's New York Ripper is another one I've seen and loved.

    Other than that I haven't seen that many giallo's, unless Lamberto Bava's Macabre is one? I'm actually still very uncertain on exactly what giallo is.


    To sum it up, I've liked all I've seen so far.

    All I really know about Giallo is that Dario Argento either founded it, or perfected it. Also, that I notice all of Dario's films have a certain look and style to them generally. One of the main things I notice is that it's quite often from the POV of the killer, and they often wear black leather gloves.

    He has said that he had an idea with his films, which was to have the audience relate to the killer rather than the victim, and get in touch with their darkest selves. This is what I read in the bio they put into the extra features on my Suspiria dvd (one of the best movies ever made by the way).

    The only issue I've ever really had with Argento films is the god awful abrupt endings (at least in my opinion). The endings to Suspiria, Inferno, and Opera in particular seem really lackluster and anti-climactic to me even after numerous views.

    Giallo (pronounced IPA: ['ʤallo], plural gialli) is an Italian 20th century genre of literature and film, which in Italian indicates crime fiction and mystery. In the English language, however, it is used in a broader meaning that is closer to the French fantastique genre, including elements of horror fiction and eroticism. The word giallo is Italian for "yellow" (see Wiktionary: giallo) and stems from the origin of the genre as a series of cheap paperback novels with trademark yellow covers.

    Ah, that's interesting. I remember reading things along those lines in the past, but also reading that it was something Argento invented, so I wasn't sure haha.

    Makes sense since Argento's movies pretty well always have to do with the murder mystery base, and the heroin doing a whole crap load of detective work when weird happenings are a-brewin' lol.

    I've been into Argento's work for awhile now, but I don't own many other Giallos except Torso, Don't Torture A Duckling and Anthropophagus. But I have quite a few Italian Horror movies.

    Anthropophagous is not a giallo.

    Deep Red
    Tenebre
    Opera
    Bird with Crystal Plumage
    Cat O' Nine Tails
    Four Flies on Grey Velvet
    Blood and Black Lace
    Five Dolls for an August Moon
    Bay of Blood
    The House with Laughing Windows
    Who Saw Her Die
    Short Night of the Glass Dolls
    Footprints
    Don't Torture a Duckling
    Torso
    All the Colors of the Dark
    What Have you Done to Solange?

    All of the above are at least worth watching.

    I highly recommend
    'Your Vice is a Locked Room and only I Have the Key'
    'The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh'
    'The Case of the Scorpions Tail'
    'Delerium' It's VERY sleazy, but I like EuroSleaze
