average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Blood and Black Lace (1964)
Not Rated
  Mario Bava's stylish classic is the blueprint for all Giallos that followed.
The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1969)
  Dario Argento's first film, and a personal favorite.
Deep Red (1975)
Not Rated
  Many people consider this to be Dario Argento's best film. An excellent Giallo.
Opera (1987)
Not Rated
  One of Dario Argento's lesser films. It's not a classic like Suspiria or Deep Red, but still a very good movie.
Tenebre (1982)
Not Rated
  A favorite among Dario Argento fans. On almost everyone's list of Top 10 Giallos.
Seven Blood Stained Orchids (1972)
Not Rated
  A very solid entry into the Giallo-genre. Umberto Lenzi leaves the gut-munching cannibal-zombie films behind and turns in a great mystery.
Dressed to Kill (1980)
  Does an American movie belong on a list of Italian murder-mysteries??? This Brian De Palma film has all the makings of the best Giallos. Don't pass this one by just because it's not Italian.
What Have You Done to Solange? (1972)
Not Rated
  This film is a favorite among Giallo fans. Almost always on Top 10 lists. Highly recommended.
The House with Laughing Windows (1976)
Not Rated
  Many people consider this to be one of the ultimate Giallo films. Always finds itself on the Top 10 Giallo lists. Essential viewing for all Giallo fans.
A Blade in the Dark (1983)
Not Rated
  Lamberto Bava (son of Mario Bava) directed this Giallo, which many consider to be his best film. That's not saying much. Most of his movies are pretty bad. For the Giallo fans, this one's worth watching.
Don't Torture a Duckling (1972)
Not Rated
  Lucio Fulci is one of the best known and most respected Italian Horror directors (slightly behind Dario Argento and Mario Bava). Most of his films are zombie gore-fests. But here's a well-restrained Giallo, and one of his best movies.
Autopsy (1974)
Not Rated
  I wasn't too impressed by this movie. But I know a lot of people liked it, and I've seen it on a few Top 10 lists. So check it out and decide for yourself.
Torso (1973)
Not Rated
  A very good Giallo directed by fan-fave Sergio Martino. Not the best the genre has to offer, but still recommended.
