    Even if the film is shit, you can always bank on an Italian giallo having a great title. Which overly long, animal-spouting, sentence, err, title, is your favorite?

    I like simple and sensical, so I went with Blood and Black Lace.

    Just wondering, where is Five Dolls For an August Moon? That's a pretty out-there title...

    Many great options, but Your Vice is a Locked Room & Only I Have the Key is the most clever attention getting title.

    That title never clicked with me thus the reason I never checked out the movie. I voted Strip Nude For Your Killer. Now that's a title :D

    I voted for "Bloody Iris" but really only because of the Italian title "What Are Those Strange Drops Of Blood Doing On Jennifer's Body?" That is, without doubt, my favorite film title ever.

    A title that's hard to beat in terms of trash value I highly approve of! :evil:

    "strip nude for your killer" might be one of the greatest movie titles, period.

    As soon as I read the thread title I knew I'd be voting for "Your Vice, etc."

    I voted other because I wanted to include this one:

    "What Are Those Strange Drops of Blood Doing on Jennifer's Body?"

    I could've just voted "The Case of the Bloody Iris" but the original title is so much better :D

    That's like getting out the whip, dressing up in chains and leather, and then cuddling for two hours. If you're gonna giallo, you gotta go all the way with a crazy title!

    Your Vice... gets the vote for me.

    Great movie despite the most retarded title ever.

    Strip Nude For Your Killer is my favorite title on that list, even though the film isn't very good. :D
