A couple of the posters are from films that are very much borderline gialli, but all of the posters are from films that are included in Antonio Bruschini and Stefano Piselli’s “Giallo & Thrilling all’Italiana” so I’ve decided to post them here anyway. I hope you enjoy the new posters!
I’ll leave you with a couple of updated posts where I’ve managed to find alternate artwork. First new post will be tomorrow.
E tanta paura

Una Ragazza piuttosto complicata

Ok, that's it for the moment. I've posted all the giallo locandine that are in my collection at the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to post some updates here eventually when I find a few of the posters I'm still missing, but until then, here's a few updates to previous posts. I've updated Don't Torture a Duckling locandina with picture of my recent acquisition and I've also posted the third (!) versions of the posters for both Giallo Napoletano and Malocchio/Erocitofolia.
Even though I won't be posting here for a while, I've started posting some of the locandine that don't fit into the Giallo category. Since I'd like to keep this site all about giallo, I'll post these at Giallo Locandine - The Annex. It will be mainly crime locandine, but a few horror and other cult posters as well. As with this blog, don't expect any in-depth reviews, it'll mainly be a chance to appreciate the artwork on these wonderful posters. Hopefully I'll see you over there!
The poster for Giorni d’amore sul filo di una lama looks promising enough, but unfortunately Guiseppe Pellegrini's 1973 giallo fails to deliver any kind of thrills. You get amateurishly staged fights, uninspired gunplay and a bad guy who constantly refers to himself in third person. Sadly you don't care about any characters and there's no suspense to speak of, so there really is very little reason to sit through this film unless you're a giallo completist.
No info on who's responsible for the wonderful poster.

Spring Break, wet t-shirts contests and biker gangs is not something you'd normally associate with a giallo. Umberto Lenzi's Nightmare Beach really has far more in common with your average American 80's slasher than any giallo. But John Saxon is always worth watching though and you do have to admire the ingenuity of a killer builds an electric chair at the back of his bike. Poster art is by the always dependable Renato Casaro.

The Mya dvd of this Maria Mell starring thriller is finally out under the title Death Will Have Your Eyes. The dvd certainly isn't anything to write home about (it basically looks like a pretty poor VHS copy) and while the film is more like a jet-set/home invasion type thriller than your typical giallo, I'd say it's worth a look. No info on who's responsible poster art.

Piccio Raffanini's erotic thriller is something as odd as a futuristic giallo. Obviously the budget restraints stops it from going all Blade Runner on us, but it does feature a few "futuristic" cars and ray guns. It basically looks like an 80's rock video, complete with dancing dwarves, Kid Creole and more nudity more than you can shake a stick at.
It's not a good film by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to say that it's quite entertaining and I wouldn't mind a dvd at some point.
The poster, with artwork by Sciotti, took me quite some time to find but here it is, in all it's 80's glory.
