    This gives me hope. I loved DUCKLING and have just really started to try and get into this genre. Does NEW YORK RIPPER count as well? It's my favorite Fulci so far.

    I have to say that I've gotten into this genre and I'm really starting to enjoy these films. I've watched the following so far:

    Bird With A Crystal Plumage
    Deep Red
    Blood and Black Lace
    Who Saw Her Die?
    Your Vice..... Key
    Torso
    Black Belly of the Tarantula
    What Have You Done to Solange?

    Out of all of them I've seen so far, I like Bird, Torso, and Your Vice..., the best. Sergio Martino is a great director from what I've seen. Unfortuneately, I wasn't a big fan of Black Belly of the Tarantula. It just dragged on too much and the plot was lackluster. Any other must haves out there?

    At least try some other Argento Gialli (Cat o' Nine Tails,Tenebrae,Opera) and the other Martino films (Scorpion's Tail,Strange Vice..)
    And get House with the Windows that Laugh,one of my all time favorite Italian films.

    So I stumbled upon this thread while doing a search for some obscure gialli I was hoping to order from Xploited. I'm amazed that I've seen about 95% of the films mentioned in this thread (and then some)! Easily the best horror sub-genre out there.

    I have horrorDVDs to thank from my Gialli addiction. :D

    Puzzle by Duccio Tessari is also very nice with a bit more attention here for a coherent story
