My top 36 Giallo films: Animals, Numbers, Colors, and J&B

This list took longer than I thought it would and I picked 32 (now 33) (now 34) (now 35!) (now 36!!)because that’s how old I am currently and I’ll continuously add to this every year I don’t croak. Anyways, here’s my top 36 films for my favorite genre... the giallo!

I kept movies like Suspiria and House by the Cemetery off my list because they just aren’t gialli and wish they weren’t lumped into the genre despite having a few elements. I also debated Stagefright and Phenomena but they made the list despite one being more slashery and the others being a straight up fairytale.
