    With NoShame and Blue Underground quietly rolling out one gialli after another, the Italian thriller is thriving in full force. Right on the heels of NoShame's Luciano Ercoli set is a new batch of 4 gialli from the Underground. Of the four, which one are you most anticipating?

    The Pyjama Girl Case. From everything I've read, it strikes me as the most intriguing.

    I'll be buying all of these (as I do with just about every BU title) but my vote goes to The Fifth Cord, mainly because it stars Franco Nero.

    My most anticipated release is really "Black Belly of the Tarantula", but for obscure reasons, I had to vote fore "Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion", starring international beauty Dagmar Lassender. :D

    The Black Belly Of The Tarantula gets my vote. But to tell you the truth, I will most definitely pick up all of them because thats how I roll. Peace.

    I'm most looking forward to Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion (love the title, too), but I eventually want to buy them all. I'll Netflix 'em first, though, to see if they're any good.

    These are all in my queue, so it feels safe to say I really want to see them ALL. :D

    I'm interested in them all, but I really don't know anything about ANY of them to be more enthused for one title specifically over the other three.

    Black Belly was my most anticipated but I already bought the recent Italian disc.A great Giallo and very recommended!
    So the next one would be The Fifth Cord for me.It has all the right ingredients (Franco Nero,Vittorio Storaro and Ennio Morricone).

    I too will be picking all of these up, but my vote is for Black Belly of the Tarantula, as I've simply been anticipating this one for some time now. (I'm also eager to get No Shame's Luciano Ercoli "Death" collection).

    Ditto.

    And it should be noted that I haven't actually seen any of these films as of yet...but that sure as hell will be changing soon!

    I got my recent "Ercoli-fix" from NoShame and "Fifth Cord" I saw a couple of years ago. That leaves "Black Belly" and "Pyjama" for me. I go with "Pyjama" because from what I've read it sounds like quite a special little giallo and I've been wanting to see that one for a long time.
    Will buy all 4 though.

    I can get all four at about $11 a piece, so I think I might do that. I'm most excited about The Fifth Cord, as Fangoria ranked it the best of these BU releases and, even though I can't totally trust them, it has my intrigue peaked.

    I saw 'em all at Hastings, and picked up The Pyjama Girl Case. The damn security sticker (the BU factory seal) was stuck over the front/back top cover. I had one hell of a time minimizing the tearing at the top when opening the shrinkwrap.

    The Fifth Cord, they had one in stock, but the disc was loose in the case and rattled like mad.

    Black Belly of the Tarantula, they had two in stock, but the BU security sticker at the top was also sticking to both the top sides of the coverart! grrrrrrrrrr......

    BU really needs to improve their packaging.

    I particularly hate the round corner edges on BU cover sleeves because they are the most prone to denting and dog-earing.

    I bought and watched The Fifth Cord and Forbidden Photos at Best Buy the other day to kill off the remainder of my holiday gift cards, and really enjoyed both...though they were the two I was not as interested in initially. Both had the same packaging problems that were talked about here with the security sticker damaging the art. I ordered the other two from DDD, should be here any day now.
