Even if the film is shit, you can always bank on an Italian giallo having a great title. Which overly long, animal-spouting, sentence, err, title, is your favorite?

I like simple and sensical, so I went with Blood and Black Lace.

Just wondering, where is Five Dolls For an August Moon? That's a pretty out-there title...

Many great options, but Your Vice is a Locked Room & Only I Have the Key is the most clever attention getting title.

Your Vice is a Locked Room And Only I Have the KeyThat title never clicked with me thus the reason I never checked out the movie. I voted Strip Nude For Your Killer. Now that's a title :D

I voted for "Bloody Iris" but really only because of the Italian title "What Are Those Strange Drops Of Blood Doing On Jennifer's Body?" That is, without doubt, my favorite film title ever.

A title that's hard to beat in terms of trash value I highly approve of! :evil:

"strip nude for your killer" might be one of the greatest movie titles, period.

As soon as I read the thread title I knew I'd be voting for "Your Vice, etc."

I voted other because I wanted to include this one:

"What Are Those Strange Drops of Blood Doing on Jennifer's Body?"

I could've just voted "The Case of the Bloody Iris" but the original title is so much better :D

The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire. Awesome, I might have to check that one out.

That's like getting out the whip, dressing up in chains and leather, and then cuddling for two hours. If you're gonna giallo, you gotta go all the way with a crazy title!

Great movie despite the most retarded title ever.

Strip Nude For Your Killer is my favorite title on that list, even though the film isn't very good. :D

I voted for WATSDOBDOJB, even though I've never seen it.

The title is long, weird and totally unlike an American film title. I love it.

Assuming that by "best" you mean silliest, I went with Jennifer's Body. The title is so ridiculously long that you pretty much lose interest before the question is fully asked!

Hell, they're all fun. But the idea of torturing a duckling is just too funny not to get my vote.

Here's another cool one:
"Revelations of a Sex Maniac to the Head of the Criminal Investigation Division"

They should remake some of these into pornos:

What Are Those Strange Drops of Skeet Doing on Jennifer's Body?
The Bitch with the Bush of Fire
Death Carries a Dildo
The Strange Snatch of Mrs. Wardh

I have problems. :lol:

Likewise. It sounds like a direct line of dialogue plucked from the script and made into the title.

How about:

Seven Money Shots In Her Cat's Eye
Don't Torture A Virgin Suckling
How To Drill A Judge
A Whore Lies On Grey Velvet
The Killer Wore Latex Gloves :rolleyes:

I've always enjoyed thinking up adult versions of movie titles, so you're not the only one with problems. I voted for Strip Nude For Your Killer because it's a great title for a great trashy movie and Edwige Fenech does great things for me. :glasses:

That's another one I like a lot as well along with Seven Blood-Stained Orchids.
