    Went with Argento's masterful Deep Red. One of my very favorites not included on this list is Sergio Martino's All the Colors of the Dark.

    Looking back now I'm wondering why I didn't include that myself. I definitely would put it ahead of Short Night of the Glass Dolls.

    I just saw All the Colors of the Dark for the first time two and a half years ago. Picked up as a blind buy. I rewatch it pretty regularly and would rank it up there with other giallos I've been watching much longer.

    This is a great list to pick from and choosing a favorite wasn't easy.

    I felt All Colors to be pretty weak.

    I used to think Deep Red, but also Tenebre. I chose Tenebre, but some days I would choose Deep Red, they are both on a very high level

    I wish I could see what others see in Deep Red and Suspiria. I just don't get it. They're not TERRIBLE, don't get me wrong.

    I went with Tenebre. Lizard is close.

    How many times have you seen Deep Red and Suspiria? There is so much to get out of them that you really need to watch them at least 3 times before making a conclusion.
