In case you haven’t noticed from all the giallo soundtracks Turntabling has for sale by Goblin, Morricone, Riz Ortolani, and many more, I am obsessed with giallo films, and Italian cinema in general. (Yes Eurocine is basically an obsession, but there’s something about those Italians…)
Here is a fun little helping of giallo trailers–watching these is a favorite Internet time waster at the very least, and can make for a fun evening of adult beverages and random finds on a good night. I’ve spent good money on soundtracks for these films on the strength of having heard the music in the trailer alone–believe it or not, you can do well looking for new soundtrack sounds to obsess over just by watching these! That’s especially true for Spasmo and Black Belly of the Tarantula (see below).
The trailer for Death Will Have Your Eyes looks maddeningly familiar, but I personally can’t remember ever having watched it.
Spasmo is hands down one of the best giallo trailers of all time, and the movie is pretty outstanding too. It’s one of my all-time favorites. The plot twists and turns so hard that when you finally get round to the end, it’s a relief that ANY of it makes sense.
The Black Belly of the Tarantula is also a standout film of the genre, one not to be missed–and that soundtrack! Definitely worth a look–the plot is outrageous, the music is not to be missed, giallo soundtrack vinyl fans…
