BIGGEST Giallo List Ever


Hello everyone,

For those of you who likes Giallis let's compile the biggest list of Giallo movies, preferably with the links or hints where we can download them.

As per Wikipedia-Giallo (Italian pronunciation: [ˈdʒallo], 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", and stems from the origin of the genre as a series of cheap paperback novels with trademark yellow covers.

I suggest not only traditioonal Italian giallo, but Turkish, Spanish and whatever else maybe found.

Let's share where can we download these and more giallis.

232. Dellamorte Dellamore aka Cemetary Man

Okay, I'll bite: What's a Giallo?

I'm kidding: Dellamorte Dellamore aka Cemetary Man

Employee of the Month
I know Asia Argento. She played roles in Triple xXx and Palombella Rossa (Communism and water polo). But I haven`t seen this one... or any other of this 232 movies...

Are we still building the list ot there is nothing to add?

I haven't read through but people are saying there are no Dario Argento films in sight?! how on earth can you miss one of the most famous director's out there who made such films...

You are even missing the movie Giallo!

Another one, off the top of my head, is Death Laid an Egg - a pretty good movie. But let's not forget Death Carries a Cane, Lizard in a Woman's Skin, or The Cat O'Nine Tails, or many others.

^ Nothing wrong with that, the film Giallo was horrendous and deserves to be missed off.
Giallo wasn't too bad. Probably Argento's worst, but still better than about a hundred other horror movies I've seen.

I like some of the gialli I've seen, and appreaciate the effort, but your list is missing essential titles, and lists films unrelated to the genre.

Giallo/Gialli plural (yellow in Italian) was the name given to a series of murder mystery/thriller novels that appeared in Italy in yellow bound covers. The name was appplied to similar themed movies that typically featured a series of grisly murders, often sexually motivated. UK dvd label Shameless recently homaged the origins of Giallo with the yellow sleeves for their recent Eurotrash dvd series. The films usually feature a knife weilding fedora wearing gloved killer and typically take place around fashion houses, and invlove photographers - though granted this is a genre cliche.

Admittedly there's a lot films on your list I haven't seen, but I can tell they don't fit the template just from the titles and synopsis'.

Particularly these, which I have seen and own on dvd: -

21. CHOSEN SURVIVORS (1974) Excellent British ecological horror flick. A group of diverse individuals are suddenly taken from their homes and flown via helicopter to a futuristic bomb shelter in the desert, nearly two miles below the surface of the Earth. There they learn that a nuclear holocaust is taking place and that they've been "chosen" by computer to survive in the shelter in order to continue the human race. Starring Jackie Cooper, Alex Cord, Richard Jaeckal, and others. Directed by Sutton Roley. Dubbed in English. (A-/B).
This is an American made for TV flick, and definitely not giallo.

You also list Who Can Kill A Child? which is a classic Spanish horror in the vein of Children of the Damned, Night of the Living Dead and Lord of the Flies. Definitely not giallo.

Dellamorte Dellamore is another questionable addition. I'd certainly place that more in the realms of horror/erotic/dark fantasy than giallo.

I would recommend the following as essential: -

The Girl Who Knew Too Much (1963)- Mario Bava - sometimes credited as being the first giallo movie; lead actress Liticia Roman can even be seen reading a giallo novel on an plane at the beginning.

Blood and Black Lace (1964) - Mario Bava - stylistically and thematically seminal - often imitated in the years to come. Strip Nude for Your Killer and The Curse of the Bloody Iris are prime examples of this.

Deep Red aka Profondo Rosso (1975) - Dario Argento - the best, nuff said.

The House With Laughing Windows (1976) - Pupi Avati - my favourite; rural giallo filled with a sense of impending dread.

The Black Belly of the Tarantula (1971) - Paolo Cavara - Stone cold classic featuring three bond girls to boot.

What Have You Done to Solange? (1972) - Massimo Dallamano - excellent UK set, low key giallo.

A Lizard in a Woman's Skin (1971) - Lucio Fulci - excellent trippy UK set giallo from the gore maestro.

Don't Torture A Duckling (1972) - Lucio Fulci - beautifully shot rural giallo.

Stage Fright (1987) - Michele Soavi - probably the last gasp of the genre and one of the few 80's slasher films I like. In my opinion one of the best slashers movies of the 1980's.

Dressed To Kill (1980) - Brian De Palma's best Hitchcock homage also nods Argento and bears all the classic hallmarks of the genre.

The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh (1971) Sergio Martino - probably Martino's best giallo - though I've yet to see Your Vice is a Locked Room and only I have the Key. His other efforts The Case of the Scorpion's tail and Torso are average.

Giallo wasn't too bad. Probably Argento's worst, but still better than about a hundred other horror movies I've seen.
Nah, it was bad, especially coming from Argento, don't know what has happened with him as a film maker.

Argento, don't know what has happened with him as a film maker.
The same thing that happened to Carpenter and Romero; times changed and they ran out of ideas.

Exactly. For all but very, very few, everyone has their time. Coppola is another classic example. He owns the 70's. Made a few much loved films in the early 80's (more noticable for the cast/performances than his direction, IMO) but since then? I personally like Bram Stoker's Dracula, but then I like overtly theatrical gothic horror, although with Tetro he may've had a last hurrah.

Is Nightmare Man giallo? Really?

You can add Nothing Underneath (Sotto il Vestito Niente), it`s not great but it definitely has a lot of giallo features.
Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep? To the very toes he is terrified, because the ground gives way under him, and the dream begins.
