Gialli & Eurocrime (poliziottesco/poliziesco: mafia vs. mafia or mafia vs. psycho cop) Page 2 ............ Page 1



A favourite film genre of mine is Gialli. The visually stylish, violent and
often macabre Italian crime-thrillers from the 1960's - 1970's called Gialli,

Yellow, after the color of the Pulp Fiction book series released in Italy.

One of the cinematographic Titans and the creators of the genre was/were
the great Mario Bava, the visual master and among his genre successors
were directors like Umberto Lenzi, Aldo Lado, Luciano Ercoli, Lucio Fulci,
Sergio Martino, Massimo Dallamano, Luigi Bazzoni and .... naturally, the
very influential genre master Dario Argento.

Then we have the 1970's Italian crime movies with mafia and/or police,
the Poliotteschi movies and gangster/mob movies, sub-genres within the
Eurocrime genre. Eurocrime? Yes, i guess basically 1970's continental
European crime movies, and very popular today among genre lovers (as
director Quentin Tarantino). One of the true Masters of the genre was/were
Fernando Di Leo and his films really has got some bite to them.

The pics at the side of this text show the sleeves of 2 old but nice Dario
Argento gialli VHS cassettes from the time before DVD

I re-watched this giallo after 20 years and I liked
it a lot better this time. A mixed bag, but much is
very good, as the opening Set Piece train murder,
the music by Goblin and the performance of the
great Max von Sydow - R.I.P.

Decent Eurocrime with Franco Nero as a PD hired

DVD in english audio, region free
Spanish DVD edition

 

An OK B-giallo from Bava Jr. with a little flat
direction as usual, but also always entertaining
as usual from Lamberto when he rips off classics
of the genre. A psycho killer is loose even though
he should be very dead, how is it possible ?

Morirai a mezzanotte (Midnight Killer)

Direction and co-script: Lamberto Bava, production: Italy 1986

Cast: Valeria D'obici, Paolo Malco, Leonardo Treviglio, Lara Wendel
DVD in italian audio without english subtitles, region 2
Italian Cine Kult DVD edition

 

A Blade in the Dark and Macabro are my two
favourite films of always enjoyable Lamberto
the son of Mario. A suspenseful and slick giallo
inspired by Dario Argento where women die
around a baffled composer in a big rented villa

A Blade in the Dark (La Casa con la Scala nel Buio)

Direction and edit: Lamberto Bava, production: 1983

Cast: Andrea Occhipinti, Anny Papa, Fabiola Toledo
Blu-ray in english or italian audio, region ALL
Spanish blu-ray edition

 

Slow but stylish psycho-horror-drama when a blind
guy rent out some rooms to a woman obsessed with
her dead lover. Also a "beautiful" mother-daughter
relationship and an amazing Zinny as the evil child.
Maybe not a typical giallo but very impressive

Macabro (Macabre/Frozen Terror)

Direction and co-script: Lamberto Bava, production: 1980

Cast: Bernice Stegers, Stanko Molnar, Veronica Zinny
Blu-ray in english or italian audio, region ALL
German LFG blu-ray edition

     

 


A Surprisingly Great minimalistic, to the point of
being almost experimental, car crime drama. Daring
from a man of his age, but the film was sadly lost
and seen by none. Here in 2 versions, great film.
with a commentary and a Making Of

Rabid Dogs (Cani arrabbiati) + Kidnapped

Direction: Mario Bava, production: 1975

Cast: Riccardo Cucciolla, Lea Lander, Luigi Montefiore
DVD in italian audio with english subtitles, region 1
US Anchor Bay DVD edition - Mario Bava Collection Vol. 2

 

Maybe my favourite Bava film, misunderstood, under-
rated and seldom seen in it's original uncut version.
Visually masterful dreamlike about a german tourist
lost in Toledo and her meetings with the Devil.
Intensely atmospherical and saturated with melan-
cholia. Very ambitious and Savalas is great

Lisa and the Devil (Lisa e il diavolo)

Direction: Mario Bava, prod: Italy, Spain, West Germany 1972

Cast: Elke Sommer, Telly Savalas, Sylva Koscina, Alida Valli
DVD in english audio, region free
US Image Entertainment DVD edition

 

Bava's famous proto-slasher with 11 gruesome
murders when a group of people fights about some
valuable property at the bay. Great gore from Carlo
Rambaldi and a nice ST from Stelvio Cipriani.
I remember buying this on a french secam VHS in
the 1980's to be able to see it uncut

A Bay of Blood (Ecologia del Delitto/Twitch of the Death
Nerve/Carnage/Bloodbath/La Baie Sanglante/ etc etc.


Direction, co-script, camera: Mario Bava, production: 1971

Blu-ray in english audio, region A
US Kino Lorber Classics blu-ray edition

 

A macabre psycho-horror where a fashion designer
goes havoc due to a nasty wedding- combined
mother fetish. Not one of Bavas better films sadly
but this obscure offering do look great visually,
and it has genre cult actress Dagmar Lassander in it

A Hatchet For the Honeymoon (Una Hacha para la luna de miel/
Blood Brides/ The Red Sign of Madness/Il Rosso segno della follia)

WOW! A great release with maybe the ultimate
Masterpiece of Lucio Fulci and one of Bavas best.
A pich-black historical crime drama plus a very

Not really a Giallo in spite of it's title, but more of
a serial killer crime horror. Not good at all, but OK
to come from the "New" rotten filmmaker Argento
Shot in Turin and the Byron Deidra gag was fun

Giallo

Direction: Dario Argento, production: 2009

Cast: Adrien Brody, Emmanuelle Seigner, Elsa Pataky, Byron Deidra
DVD in english audio with english subtitles, region 3
Thai Rose Media & Entertainment DVD edition




So BAD it's hard to believe. An enjoyable mess
for bad film afficionados. Dario's absolutely

stinkeroo ending of his Mother's Trilogy. Very
violent with a beyond bad ending. It looks like,
and smells like a pile of Hippopotamus dung

Mother of Tears (La Terza Madre)

Direction: Dario Argento, production: 2007

Cast: Asia Argento, Valeria Cavalli, Moran Atias
DVD in english audio, region 1
US Dimension Extreme DVD edition

 

A possessed raccoon fur causes a lot of death
and fun gore in Dario's second offering to the TV
MOH series. With commentary, making of etc.
Nowadays Argento's much better in the smaller
TV format as his feature films suck desperately

Pelts (From Masters of Horror series)

Direction: Dario Argento, production: 2006

Cast: Meatloaf, John Saxon
DVD in english audio, region 1
US Anchor Bay DVD edition

 

Argento having a lot of Fun in a delightfully
bizarre horror-comedy about an animal or some
sort of creature girl. With lots of extras as the
penis biting scene, commentary etc.

Jenifer (From Masters of Horror series - Season 1)

Direction: Dario Argento, production: 2005

Cast: Carrie Ann Fleming, Ben Weber
DVD in english audio, region 1
US Anchor Bay DVD edition

 

A really nice film made for Italian TV and a
pastisch and tribute to the great Alfred Hitchcock

about a student peeping on his beautiful neighbour.
Nowadays Argento's much better in the smaller
TV format as his feature films suck desperately

Do You Like Hitchcock? (Ti Piace Hitchcock?)

Direction: Dario Argento, production: Italy 2005

Cast: Elio Germano, Elisabetta Rocchetti, Chiara Conti
DVD in english audio, region 1
US Anchor Bay DVD edition

 


Not really a giallo or even a horror in the usual
sense but more as a CSI TV series episode, and
one of my 2-3 least liked Argento movies

The Card Player (Il Cartaio)

Direction: Dario Argento, production: 2004

Cast: Stefania Rocca, Fiore Argento
DVD in english audio with english subtitles, region 1
US Anchor Bay DVD edition


A Re-Evaluation of this, maybe Argento's most
hated film. I was shocked when i first saw it and
when rewatching it in august 2010 it was still BAD,
but in a fun trashy way. Phantom is really a matinée
childrens adventure with comedy, gore and hilarious
over the top bad acting from Sands and Asia.
No, this is not Dario's worst film, but enjoyable
trash

The Phantom of the Opera (El Fantasma de la Opera)

Direction: Dario Argento, production: Claudio Argento 1998

Cast: Asia Argento, Julian Sands, Nadia Rinaldi, Andrea Di Stefano
DVD in english audio, region free
US A-Pix DVD (a very early DVD edition)

 


A Visually very inspired but uneven Neo-Giallo
where the Syndrome afflicted cop Asia hunts a

serial killer. Great start at the Uffizi Gallery in
Firenze, wow, but a long boring ending

The Stendhal Syndrome

Direction: Dario Argento, production: 1996

Cast: Asia Argento, Thomas Kretschmann
DVD in italian audio with english subtitles, region free
US Blue Underground 2 disc DVD edition

 


Asia is a Roumanian girl on the run in Minneapolis
and a killer murders people with a nasty electric
noose. A so-so giallo compared to Dario's best
ones but Good stuff comp. with his later efforts

Trauma

Direction: Dario Argento, production: Italy-USA 1992

Cast: Asia Argento, Piper Laurie, Christopher Rydell
DVD in english audio, region 2
UK Lion's Gate DVD edition

 

Violent and visually mindblowing with ravens, needles
and a bullet through the eye of Daria Nicolodi with
music from Verdi. About the ill-fated production of
Verdi's opera MacBeth and the last really great film
from Dario Argento (30 years now ..... )

Opera

Dario's most original, personal and quirky film

worldly beautiful Jennifer as the Lady of the
Flies. Must be seen and preferably on a bluray

Number 2 in the Mothers series. Visual fireworks with
a gorgeous start but a disappointing ending. I love the
Cat Lady in Rome and the Irene Miracle scene with
the waterfilled room in NY. Warning for cat throwing.

optical effects. Keith Emerson did the fine score

The Giallo masterpiece in a nice blu-ray edition.
Unjustly overlooked is the great Clara Calamai as the
mother of Carlo, what an intense performance.
I can't remember seing her or her being discussed in
any extras. The commentary dude calls her a Fascist
actress .... and Nicolodi attacks Dario - again in extras
