Really, I could go on and on about this particular genre, it pickles my fancy so very much, and this is before we even get into the euro-crime subgenre (though both WHTDTS? and WHTDTYD? are crossovers in this regard, particularly the later) but for now, i'd say these are good entry points for some of the none Argento or Bava Snr. titles.

I've been looking around and getting some of these giallo movies recommended, but while I'm at it... any recommendations for those euro-crime movies?  :cool:

Almost Human (1974) looks lively, by that Lenzi guy, and Gambling City also looks promising. What are your favs that you've seen in that genre so far?

Almost Human is essential! Lenzi and Millian at there barmy best, and while your at it, The Cynic, The Rat and the Fist aint half bad either, starring the omnipotent genre icons Merli.

When it comes to eurocrime, one director rains supreme however, Fernando Di Leo. He directed some of the snazziest, classy and intriguing mob movies ever, his opus being Milano Caliber 9, a movie that can go toe to toe with Goodfellas, but then he also directed some glorious trash like The Boss, which is glorious in it's own way.

Dellamano concluded his trilogy after WHTDTYD? And WHTDTS? with an out and out cop thriller, Colt 38 Action Squad. It's a fairly gritty fair, but one of the beat of the genre. In stark contrast is the barmy Di Keo scripted (and candidate for the best title to a movie ever) Live Like a Cop...Die Like a Man! from Rogero Deodato. It opens with an unlicensed motorcycle chase that saw the director taken to court and concludes with a miniature sea yot exploding on a freeze frame. It's awesome!

I'm not so well-versed in this genre, but I did enjoy Enzo G. Castellari's The Big Racket. I saw it described as Death Wish via The Magificent Seven, which is about right.

In an uncharacteristic act of pure evilness the Souster woman switched over to PROMETHEARSE on Channel 4 and promptly fell asleep on the remote.

It's still on. As. I. Type.
Not sure if pervert or cheesecake expert.

Dead Presidents.It goes all the way from a slice-of-life to a war film to a heist film.
Also,painting your self like a mime might not be the best disguise.

The Void
Certainly earns it's 18 rating, and for an independently made movie, it's pretty impressive as it focuses on practical effects rather than CGI. Very nighmarish in a Carpenter/The Thing/Event Horizon kinda way, but it does lose some coherency towards the end.
