  • Death Walks on High Heels

    Death Walks on High Heels 1971

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Oct, 2016

    A really decent Giallo, probably middle tier as Giallo go. There's a fantastic jazzy soundtrack that is hard to get out of your head once it's in. The film again is not your typical genre piece as there's a missing diamonds sub plot that usually isn't in a thriller like this but don't let that put you off. Got to love the London and Paris location work as well, there's no mistaking where the film was shot that's for sure.…

    All the Colors of the Dark 1972

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Oct, 2016

    This is very different to your normal black gloved killer Giallo but nevertheless it still hits the mark. There's a black mass occult angle given to this and it's a very trippy style of film. I thought this was excellent at times and Edwige Fenech is superb as the troubled lead. The London settings really add to the film, even showing a great sequence on the London Underground which is one of the highlights. The cast is full of genre favourites which was good to see. Overall this is a good,weird, trippy Giallo that i think would get better on repeat viewings.

    Inferno 1980

    This is one of Argento's most underated films, It has everything, Great visuals,suspence,thrilling climax the lot! Second part of the excellent Three Mothers Trilogy. The only failing in the movie is that,well you can't top Suspira really can you? Couple it with one of his best non GOBLIN Soundtracks and you have a mini-masterpeice!

    The House by the Cemetery 1981

    A very strong entry in Lucio Fulci's zombie Quartet, It plays out almost as a slasher,and indeed add the haunted house subgenre into that as well. Overall Atmosphere was fantastic, coupled with quite abit of gore, This is not as action packed as say, The Beyond and City Of The Living Dead. A great slow burner, highely recomended!
