    Soavi's Stage Fright/Cemetery Man are two films I watch at least once a year.

    Eaten Alive, directed by Umberto Lenzi brings back memories. Found this on VHS at a rental store under the title Emerald Jungle. It was the first time I saw anything like it, and been hooked on exploitation Italian films ever since.

    If we're sticking solely with Gialo, I'd probably have to say Aldo Lado's "Short Night of Glass Dolls" - it has everything that I love in the genre. A great weird mystery, quirky side characters, beautiful score, nice camera work. Though I do with they had hired a less-accented dubbing voice for that guy with the beard.

    But, if I have to take the whole of Italian horror cinema from that time period, then I have to agree with the others about Cannibal Holocaust. Despite its reputation, it really is a perfect example of how to create an effective horror film that uses every available tool to shock and horrify the audience. It may not be deep on a level of message or symbolism. It may be crass. exploitative garbage even. But it has an almost profound understanding of the psychological craft of film making.

    Cemetery Man would still be my favorite even if I was allowed to choose between the big 3.

    Night of the Devils ("La notte dei diavoli") directed by Giorgio Ferroni - When I first saw this I was surprised how good it was and that I had not heard of it before- great movie

    way too many to choose from. First one that comes to mind is Bloody Moon for its gore, shock scenes and music score

    I would have to go with The Church. I love how the movie keeps building until there is nothing but utter chaos towards the end!

    I choose Joe D'Amato's ANTHROPOPHAGUS. I love the eerie setting on the deserted island and the film's overall feeling of isolation. Very creepy.

    Burial Ground. One of the greatest WTF movies ever made. Years ago, there was a short guy who worked at a local drugstore who looked kind of like Peter Bark. I had a friend who would do lines from the movie in a high-pitched voice whenever we ran into him there. "Oh mother, hold me to your breast like when I was a baby," LOL. He probably thought we were nuts.

    Torso, I love that proto-slasher vibe it has.

    I think I would have to go with Zombie Holocaust " Doctor Butcher M.D." directed by Marino Girolami followed closely by Cannibal Holocaust of course.

    Gotta go with Hell of the living Dead just because its such a rip off of Dawn of the Dead. I laughed so hard after I started seeing the stock footage and the soldiers wearing the same blue suits as in Dawn.
