Giallo Movies of the 1980s - A Comprehensive List


What would 70s and 80s horror be without the beloved Giallo film? Without question, some of the best and most important films to emerge from the 80s were those from Italy (and of course, all throughout mainland Europe). From Argento and Fulci to Deodato and Bava, many of the most prolific horror auteurs from the 70s and 80s came from Italy. Though defining precisely what constitutes a Giallo film is quite a contentious matter, I've nonetheless taken it upon myself to build a bit of a list of films from the 80s which (I hope) won't be too controversial. If nothing else, it should serve to provide my audience with a convenient way to quickly watch some full length Italian horror cinema with little effort. Enjoy the list below and, as usual, leave a comment if you feel a film is missing or you don't agree with what I've listed.
