I think one day I'd like to make a Giallo film. I enjoy the formulaicness of the genre.

Obviously I don't have any high expectations about it being a huge hit lol.

I'd also like to try to do a Dogme 95 film. But that one I think would be a lot harder.

 The Devil Has Seven Faces  (1971)

 Director: Osvaldo Civirani
 Stars: Carroll Baker, George Hilton, Stephen Boyd, Lucretia Love and Luciano Pigozzi

The theft of jewels and mistaken identity complicate the life of Mary in this giallo.

This was a new one for me and this was not a black gloved killer or very sleezy like most giallo but more of a crime thriller. It is set in Amsterdam, Holland, so the back drop of the story looks stunning, it's just a shame the story is not that great, the best part of the movie is the lovely score by Stelvio Cipriani but if you don't expect much in the way of traditional giallo thrills then there is some charm to this film, there are a few passages of effective suspense to enjoy but it was not the best , but i'm glad that i watched it.

Formula for a Murder  (1985)

Director: Alberto De Martino
Stars: Christina Nagy, David Warbeck, Carroll Blumenberg and Rossano Brazzi

David Warbeck stars an instructor who marries a traumatized, crippled woman. The wife is tormented by a traumatic event that happended. What is even more unfortunate is that her marriage is a just part of her maniac husband's evil scheme to kill her for her money. It isn't long before the formula is put into action and the gory body count starts to mount.

Quite enjoyed this Giallo, slow in some places but the murders were well done with a good amount of blood, the acting was good and the film had plenty of tension, not a bad Giallo at all.

I need to check out Formula for a murder. I will put it on my list of gialli I need to see.
The last giallo I watched was Death Occurred Last Night. Very good IMO. It's about a father searching for his daughter who is 25(but has the mind of a little child). It's him and a detective trying to find her and also trying to find out how someone got a hold of her. Because he locked his daughter in while he went to work so she wouldn't get out and wonder the streets. Raro recently released it here in the U.S. when I found it for a decent price I bought it for my gialli collection.

Seven Murders for Scotland Yard  (1971)

Director: José Luis Madrid

Stars: Paul Naschy, Patricia Loran, Renzo Marignano and Andrés Resino

In this version of the famous story of the London serial killer, Jack not only likes to kill prostitutes but he is a cannibal as well.

This Giallo is set in the seedy world of Soho, London and there is a killer going around killing prostitutes just like the infamous Jack the ripper, the chief suspect is Pedro (Paul Naschy) an ex acrobat. This film is not brilliant but saying that i enjoyed the film alot, the only down side was that after 10 minutes i had guessed who the killer was. If you like your black gloved Giallo's give this one a try as i think you will enjoy it.

As you may have seen elsewhere I watched The House With Laughing Windows the other day. have read that it is a slow burner till the awesome ending, But for me I never found it slow. Was too caught up in the visual elements. Really stood out as beautiful to me.

Been quite a while since I watched any Giallo, going to catch up with what I have in my library before moving onto other stuff. These are perfect for midnight matinees!
