Love Horror’s Top Giallo’s on Shudder

2222Horror movie streaming service Shudder has a terrifying tone of great horror movies so we thought we would delve into some of their specially curated Shudder Collections to pick some of our favourite frighteners.

Here is what Shudder has to say about their GIALLO! Collection:
Masked killers, hard boiled detectives, stunning beauties, sharp knives, and maniacs lurking in the shadows. These Italian-produced murder mysteries of the ‘60s and ‘70s are dripping with eroticism and lurid violence. Giallo might mean “yellow”, but take our word for it, these films, and their contemporary descendants, are blood red.

Here are our top 3 including review quotes:
Tenebrae (1982)
“Tenebrae is Argento at his best which means a gripping thriller with an inventive plot, creative killings and plenty of blood and guts all executed with excellent cinematography and sensational style.”

Bloodstained Butterfly (1971)

“With a rich and beautiful score by Gianni Ferrio, Tessari’s direction is flawless and the clever jumping around in time works wonderfully amplifying not only the suspense and enigma on offer but the sense of fragility of life and love both of which are lost to the characters caught up in this riveting whodunit.”

The Cat o’ Nine Tails (1971)
“Argento also shows a different side to his direction with Cat o’ Nine Tails containing an action and comedy packed chase scene which is very well handled. Horror fans need not worry as although the gore is not up to Argento’s usual standards there are sill some great set pieces including a nasty train accident and a spectacular final death scene which will stay with you long after the film ends.”
