Of the many things I didn't like about 31, one thing that particularly stood out was him just trying to do that scene again with a different 70s staple, but without any of the buildup that gave the original scene any impact.

Aside from Angel Heart, are there any great horror films about a detective/police officer who goes to investigate a mystery and finds something supernatural? I guess In the Mouth of Madness sort of works in the same vein.

It's a group of police, but there's Baskin as well which is a fun ride.

It may not be as strong as a Hammer Dracula or Frankenstein, but it’s way better than Curse of the Werewolf and it’s Universal predecessor.

E: it's not giallo in the least, but the filmmakers did Strange Color Of Your Body's Tears, which is trying probably way too hard at being giallo. This one is like a Western siege movie and it rules.

Let The Corpses Tan, more like "let the leather squeak"

That was a weird fuckin' movie. I'm not 100% sure what I think of it yet. It was unique, for sure, and the cinematography was beautiful.

edit-- if you thought Quentin Tarantino let his fetishes bleed over into his films, wait til you get a load of Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani

The best part of working from home is having movies on one monitor while I work:

The Bird With The Crystal Plumage was excellent, even though you can tell it was one of Argento's earlier works. The technicality of the film isn't quite where his later movies are, but the storytelling is excellent and captivating. This was my first "actual" giallo film (Suspiria doesn't quite count, IMO) and I loved it. Managed to stay engaging and intriguing the whole way through.

Deep Red was slightly the opposite. Technically it was great - beautiful bright colors that have really become the hallmark of the style, and the cuts were masterfully used to show action that they obviously didn't have the budget or technology to show outright (mostly the violence effects). But, I feel like the story dragged a lot in the middle. The beginning was strong, and the end was strong, but the middle was a bit weak for me. However the fate of the killer(s) at the end was really rewarding.

No spoilers I guess for these 40 year old movies, but I really enjoyed both. I might rewatch Suspiria and then move on to Inferno and Mother of Tears since I'm on an Argento kick.

The uncut version is very close to 2 hours long, like right around 120 minutes. The cut version is like 20 minutes shorter.

The one on Amazon is 104 minutes, so I guess I saw that version!

Basebf555 posted:

Those 20 minutes really do complete the film and make it feel like a weird mix of giallo and romantic comedy, which for me is such a big part of what makes it great. But if you were already feeling like it dragged in the middle then maybe you wouldn't agree, hard to predict. Those Daria Nicolodi scenes are pretty divisive actually.

I mean, I saw some scenes with Daria and Marcus arm wrestling and arguing that women are inferior, and some other scenes with Daria. Was there more than that?

edit--

quote:

Most US versions remove 22 minutes' worth of footage, including the most graphic violence, all humorous scenes, almost all of the romantic scenes between David Hemmings and Daria Nicolodi, and part of the subplot regarding the house of the screaming child.

Are there any redeeming qualities in those Guinea Pig movies outside of the court case? I’ve heard they’re hard to sit through and are devoid of any plot.

Yeah if you go in knowing they're 100% fake, and watching them as SFX demos from 25 years ago, they're pretty impressive.

Watching them just for funsies as a way to relax after work though, that's uh... not a good look.
