us title: Opera
year: 1987
director: Dario Argento
composer: Claudio Simonetti
Giallo Score

Argento's visual tour de force is his last great Giallo but might also be the last great Giallo of the genre.

Bottom Line: Must-See
A quintessential example of the genre.

us title: Bizarre
year: 1987
director: Giuliana Gamba
composer: Franco Piersanti
Giallo Score

A complete mess of a film that merges a 1980s soap opera narrative with soft-core porn and horrible saxophone music. Run away quickly!

Bottom Line: Skip It
Lacks any redeeming value. A waste of time.

StageFright: Aquarius
us title: StageFright: Aquarius
year: 1987
director: Michael Soavi
composer: Simon Boswell
Giallo Score

Michele Soavi's directorial debut is a stylish and immensely entertaining white-knuckle stalk-and-slash rollercoaster. But despite the company it keeps, it's not really a Giallo.

Bottom Line: A Worthwhile Deviation
Breaks some important rules and comes out on top as a result.
