GIALLO
All of the reviews on this website were written by Brian D. Horrorwitz unless noted otherwise.

WHAT IS A GIALLO?

Over the years many thriller movies were produced in Italy, but particularly from the late ‘60s to the late ‘70s there were a large number, several hundred in fact, of "Giallo" films made there. "Giallo" is literally the Italian word for "yellow" which was the color of the covers of Italian murder mystery novels made for several decades before these films became popular. Up until 1969 there were an increasing number of Hitchcock-esque movies made there, usually plotted around a murder-with-a-motive storyline or a paranoia thriller. But it was Dario Argento's "Bird With The Crystal Plumage" (released in 1970) that broke box office records for these films and set the "psycho killer" trend for most "Gialli" to follow. Wild assaults on the senses, horrifying and beautiful at the same time! Bloody, yet often sensual and even psychedelic! Slip on your leather gloves, pour yourself a glass of J&B whisky, and get ready to witness all the colors of the dark!

Exciting Italian crime / "giallo" thriller hybrid! Stuart Whitman is a hard-nosed cop out to track his sister's murderer.

Body Count
Body Count (Camping del Terrore, 1986)
UNCUT VERSION
ENGLISH LANGUAGE WITH JAPANESE SUBTITLES
Directed by Ruggero Deodato, Italy
Mimsy Farmer and "Last House On The Left"'s David Hess star with Charles Napier. I had read quite a bit of praise on this Italian slasher movie patterned after the "Friday The 13th" films but have to say I was a bit let down. I mean it certainly wasn't any worse then some of that series, but Deodato (director of the notorious "Cannibal Holocaust" and the infinitely better "House By The Edge Of The Park") seemed too stuck on using the American film as a blueprint. Definitely worth a look (but don't get your hopes up!) and this is the uncut version.

Ennio Morricone contributes an effective score for this sleazy little gem. ~Melissa Kusia

The hardcore footage is very brief but adds to the overall grittiness of the film. ~Melissa Kusia

Starring Leonora Fani, Jeff Blynn and Gianni Dei.

2 free-loving happy-go-lucky small-time cons meet up with a beautiful woman and her mother. Unbeknownst to them they are being followed by what seem to be assassins on motorcycles. The woman turns out to have psychic and telekinetic powers. Her mother offers them $2,000 to protect them from the killers. This movie is not so much a straight-up Giallo but rather belongs more to the "what the fuck!?" sub-genre. "Para Psychics" has a bad reputation as one of the worst movies ever made but I enjoyed it quite a bit! The middle part of the film is a bit hard to follow as nothing much happens plot-wise; the 2 men wander around, sleep with a lot of naked women and fight off attacks by the assassins. There is a big plot twist towards the end. The free-spirited attitude of the 2 men creates a sort of "Butch Cassidy"-on-drugs atmosphere. Not an epic but I liked it! The picture quality is a bit dark at times but not bad. DVD-R includes the original theatrical trailer! Starring Jessica Dublin, Maria Aliferi, Peter Winter and Hristos Nomikos.

The jet-set wannabees slowly begin to dominate her until she starts to suspect that they may have a dangerous ulterior motive! A great movie and pretty wild but still hard to believe this was rated “X” when it came out! With Lou Castel and Colette Descombes.

Carroll Baker gets involved in a murder plot to kill her ex-husband (Jean Sorel). His current wife is in on it with her until the day they try to pull it off and things go slightly different then they had planned. A decent film and not quite as wild as Lenzi's thriller from the year before (also called Paranoia aka “Orgasmo” which also starred Baker) or his similarly titled film from '71 called Ideal Place To Kill, this one is more plot-oriented but effective nonetheless. I swear that there's one scene on a boat that seems to have inspired a scene in the 1998 film "Wild Things"!

Another obscure one that gets little respect but I thought it was a helluva lot cooler than most recent U.S. thrillers! Telly Savalas is an assassin out to kill an actress with amnesia (Anne Heywood). Not knowing who or why anyone’s after her, she must try to regain her memory and put the pieces together in time to save her life.

Barbara Carey plays a woman who, while on a trip to Rome, learns that her sister is one of several blind girls who has turned up murdered recently! Following a lead to an island where an unusual family lives, she pretends to be blind in order to track down the culprit. Despite a bit of nudity and blood, this one does play a bit like a t.v. movie, albeit a decent one that gets pretty intense at times!

Sex of the Witch (Il sesso della strega, 1973)
WIDE-SCREEN PICTURE

Directed by Angelo Pannacciò, Italy
A kind of black magic twist of Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians". Relatives gather for the readig of a will and people begin getting killed. Starring Susanna Levi, Jessica Dublin, Sergio Ferrero and Camille Keaton.

On his deathbed, Mr. Hilton observes his family and the fragility of their name. He fears a curse falling upon the surviving lineage. After the reading of the will, strange events and murders begin to occur. The suspicion of the police falls upon those present but something more supernatural is taking place. This is definately a very unique and groovy little film. A great psychedlic scene takes place with a rock band performing at a club. Though the violence is rather tame (except for one scene in particular), there is lots of nudity and sex. The plot is rather nonsensical but it really doesn't matter, does it? Sex of the Witch delivers the trippy goods and thats what counts! ~Melissa Kusia

Ray Milland is Dr. Mann, a doctor / caretaker at a boarding school for young boys. We learn that he has hired an assassin to kill a man so he can be with his beautiful wife Sonja (reservedly played by Sylva Koscina). The plot goes overboard, however, when the assassin blows up an entire jet airplane killing over 100 people just to get to the one guy. Enraged upon hearing this, Dr. Mann picks up a statue and bashes the assassin's head in. He then notices one of the young boys spying on the incident but doesn't see which one. Sonja convinces Mann thatthey can only do one thing to save their skins: Find out which boy it was and kill him! A fast paced movie with a decent performance by Milland, the film still lacks any kind of real style (which these films usually need) and comes off just okay. Also starring Ramiro Oliveros, Franco Giacobini, Charly Bravo and María Silva.

To Kill A Stranger
To Kill A Stranger (Matar a un extraño, 1983)
ENGLISH LANGUAGE WITH GREEK SUBTITLES
Directed by Juan Lopez Moctezuma, Mexico
I was surprised to find this one from the director of "Alucarda", "Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon" and "Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary" (all available in our "Horror" section) as years ago I had thought those were his only 3 films. Not so! This obscure murder thriller is his 4th and second-to-last film. A pretty pop singer (believably portrayed by popular Mexican film and t.v. star Angelica Maria in one of her only English roles) is traveling across a Latin country to meet her news reporter husband (Dean Stockwell). Her car brakes down during a storm and she has the unfortunate luck of being picked up by Donald Pleasance, a rich local retired army man / war hero. Seemingly helpful at first, he turns out to be a homicidal rapist and, while defending herself, she ends up killing him! In a panic she hides the body in a well but must now deal with the police and iron-fisted local army officers who are trying to discover the whereabouts of this missing "hero"! Although competently made, this is probably Moctezuma's most mainstream film mainly due to it's lack of grue and the gawdawful performance by Aldo Ray as a police detective. The rest of the cast is very good but it's Pleasance who steals the show (naturally!) and as such the film really only kicks in during his scenes. Look for Mad Magazine cartoonist Sergio Aragones as the controlling army general!

After falling out of a tree on a childhood dare, a young man ends up both physically and severly mentally scared. His mind becomes so twisted that his only joys in life seem to be playing with plastic toy blocks and murdering! The movie is a mix of a slasher film and a giallo (though those hints are more than easy to figure out)! Although it's not as bloody as one would hope and the ending is a bit of a letdown it's not a total loss either. I would probably recommend this one based on rarity alone. The scariest moment? That shockingly bad disco number at the beginning!! ~Melissa Kusia

Starring Gaetano Russo (as Ronald Russo), Domitilla Cavazza (as Dafne Price) and Roberto Posse.
