yeah I can agree with those 2... iirc BLACK BELLY started well then got boring. OASIS OF FEAR is another dud, imo... the best giallos are superb but there are quite a lot of substandard or just 'okay' ones


ANYTHING by Bruno Mattai. He makes complete garbage so bad, it cannot even be enjoyed for being inept.
I wouldn't wanna sit through it again, but RATS:NIGHT OF TERROR did have me chuckling at how bad it was. and the ending is epic! don't think Ive seen any of his others.


Agree with zombie#1 about JASON TAKES MANHATTAN. Cheers
haha, its an acquired taste. I even love the theme tune, Darkest Side Of The Night

I'm gonna add Saw 7 to this thread. It's the only movie I considered walking out in the theater --- during the f**king opening credits where they gave away the god damn  ending. I kept getting angrier and angrier as the movie progressed.

 Hatred Hatred Hatred Hatred Hatred Hatred Hatred Hatred Hatred

Honestly, anySaw past the second one could be added to this list IMO.  I really liked the first one, and the second one was good  as sequels go..but after that is when the series got a little full of itself.   I don't mind a chess master villain but Jigsaw got into that Batman can beat anyone because he's already thought out 10 different plans on everything style that nearly ruined the character for me.  

Plus the strange time line that seemed to say  that the series had been both going on for years, and yet only over a single weekend.

I found Dario Argento's Deep Red (1975) quite unpleasant and offputting.  It was screened on SBS television in Australia during the 90's.  Yuck.  It was my introduction to giallo, and hence why I never went further with the giallo genre.  Interesting to note that the only uncut widescreen version of Deep Red available is reportedly on the SBS pay-tv channel World Movies.  SBS and World Movies get some pretty exclusive stuff, including the uncut Category III Hong Kong movies Erotic Ghost Story, but I digress.

I don't watch a lot of slashers unless you count the Halloween and Friday the 13th movies, in which case I've seen all of the classics and none of the modern remakes.

Most of the Friday the 13th movies and Halloween movies are s**t.

DEEP RED is one of my favorite giallos!  Argento at his best!

yeah if you didn't like Deep Red then it probably wasn't worth your time checking out more giallos (I refuse to say 'gialli'---oh bugger I just said it). It's probably as good as the genre gets, but weirdly I don't think it has as much replay value as some others. I was blown away on first watch, not sat through it many times since then...

I know "A Blade in the Dark" has already been mentioned. I want to STRONGLY second that. And I like Lamberto Bava's films.

My major problems with the movie are covered in these two paragraphs from a review I post online:

"The film is needlessly padded, going so far as to include a number of shots of a character's head as he drives. Nowhere else in the film are we treated to these in-the-car shots until the director attempts to up the suspense. It doesn't work. In fact, it is so jarring that it kicked me completely out of what little investment I had in the film. Other instances are endless shots of blades (knives and a box cutter) and what are supposed to be "artistic" and "stylish" camera angles that draw attention to the fact that we are watching a movie.

"Here we come to the weird focal point of this film, and that is the shots of blades. Over and over. We got it, Mr. Bava. Phallic symbols. Yes, yes. Oh, and the killer slowly extending the box cutter blade to its fullest just before attacking a woman. Okay! Enough! What? Now you give us a long carving knife held at the angle of a fully erect penis? It penetrates the victims? Jeez, just make a porn flick and get it out of your system!"

Toss in the utterly s**tty dubbing on top of that, and you have one sad little movie. In my opinion. A lot of people really like it.

Eh, pet rocks were popular once as well.
