A year ago my vote would have went to either The Beyond or Tenebre, but my love for Bava seems to increase with time as I realize -- over the long haul -- just how good Bava really is (was rather -- RIP) as a film director. I voted for Black Sabbath because I feel it's one of the all time great horror movies ever committed to celluloid, and most certainly the best of the horror anthologies out there, both foreign and domestic. :evil:
Imdb says it's a Spanish/Italian Production but if you look at the names of the crew members it appears to be predominantly Spanish. I think the moneymen were Italian so I guess in that sense you could say it's an Italian horror film. But if we do that then Dawn of the Dead could also be considered Italian because of Dario Argento's involvement. To confuse matters more, I think it was shot mostly in England with an international cast.
I have definitely not seen nearly enough of these to post an informed vote, so I won't. My faves though are Suspiria, Inferno, The Beyond, The Church, and Santa Sangre (is that included as it was payed for with Italian money and such).
i went with zombie 2. i have always loved that movie.
Voted for SUSPIRIA not only because I love it but, for European Horror it's a seminal film of highly importance. For Horror in general, actually. Next choice would be Inferno, criminaly underestimated.
LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE is made by a spanish crew, with Spanish/Italian money. But Di Rossi also did the special F/X, a very Italian element and the music is written by an italian also, cannot remember his name. So, no wonder the atmosphere "feels" italian. It's ok to call it a spanish film and ok to call it an italian one, methinks.
Well Deep Red is not exactly horror, but I went for it anyway.......just shading Suspiria. It's filmed better, better music....imo......and has better set pieces......just.
Zombi as a film is terrible but in the 'we love it that way' terrible and set the tone for that whole sub-genre
If Deep Red is not horror then half of the movies on the list aren't horror.
Black Sunday for me, but right behind it is Suspiria.
Dellamorte Dellamore, followed closely by The House with Laughing Windows and Suspiria.
Every one of those films are great,but i had to go with Cannibal Holocaust
Suspiria followed closely by the beyond and dellamorte dellamor
For those who voted other what film do you choose?
The Beyond. Flick pretty much has it all.
Best? Hard to pick...I'm gonna go out on a limb and say BURIAL GROUND just because I like those zombies the most, and Peter Bark is damned frightening.
If this poll were "Favorite Italian Horror Flim" I'd vote for HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD.
I like all the others, but Fulci always tends to drag in places, and Argento just doesn't do it for me the way he does for so many others...I like certain scenes in his films, but not the flims as a whole, usually.
Well, if Santa Sangre counts then I'll put in my "other" vote because I highly doubt any of the films I haven't seen will transcend my love of that that one.
This is a tough choice.There are lots of good ones not on the list too.Demons,Phenomena,Burial Ground and yes,Hell of the Living Dead.
