New York Ripper [DVD] [1982] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Fulci's super sadistic slasher/giallo is great though its not for everyone, if in doubt don't watch, by the way the US versions include a short scene missing from the AWE disc."
Fulci Frenzy [DVD] [1969] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Fulci Frenzy [DVD] [1969] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Two Fulci's in one great package, "The Psychic" is a well thought out giallo that proves Fulci can deliver with plot as well as gore, "Perversion Story" is a clever film too but not quite as good."
Murder Rock [1984] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import]
Murder Rock [1984] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import]
"A bloodless giallo from Fulci, its well thought out and kept me happy start to finish but apparently most don't like it, buy it and become its second ever fan!"

Dario Argento's Door Into Darkness [DVD] [1973] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

"Martino's giallo/polizieschi film is an absolute delight, well thought out this one has a bit of everything, even the comedy scene works well."
Torso [1974] [DVD]
Torso [1974] [DVD]

Luciano Ercoli's Death Box Set [DVD] [1971] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Macabre [DVD] [1980]
Macabre [DVD] [1980]
"Lamberto Bava's first film is really good, like father like son, it is really slow and plot driven though as opposed to most gialli, if you've got the patience its well worth a watch."

Blade in the Dark [DVD] [1983] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

"I always thought Soavi's amazing debut was more a slasher but since its often called a giallo its got to make the list, this Danish disc contains the uncropped version, much better than the US disc."

Delirium [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
