A MASSIVE GIALLI LIST (Ranked)

I see a lot of talk online and get asked about giallo. It’s such an overwhelming genre that is hard to know where to start and typically people recommend Argento and Bava but that is just a small sliver of this amazing method of storytelling. Here is a very long list of gialli. This list contains straight forward gialli, neo-gialli and gialli adjacent films that you should check out. Even the lower rated ones have something to offer and I suggest you watch them to make up your own mind or list. This list was difficult to do because some of these films are a little bit of a stretch to include on this list but I feel they are…
