Robert B (de) wrote: Giallo (Dario Argento, 2009)Dario Argento has, over the last couple of decades, become a shadow of his former self, a parody of the director who gave us such classic gialli as Profondo Rosso, Suspiria, and Four Flies on Grey Velvet, three of the finest mysteries ever committed to celluloid. More recent efforts-The Card Player, Mother of Tears, Do You Like Hitchcock?, etc.-have been, at best, silly and derivative. Which made Giallo something of a pleasant surprise. While it is in no way up to, or even close to, the standards Argento set for giallo films in the seventies, it's some of his best work in at least the past two decades.Plot: a crazed killer, known only as Yellow (Adrien Brody, sporting some fun facial prosthetics) because of his advanced jaundice, uses his job as a taxi driver to abduct beautiful women, take them to his basement torture chamber, and do nasty things to them. His latest victim is Celine (Snakes on a Plane's Elsa Pataky), a supermodel whose sister, Linda (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly's Emmanuelle Seigner), has just gotten into town to see her. Linda enlists the help of a New York detective, Enzo Avolfi (also played by Brody), in trying to find the killer before Celine's life is forfeit.It has been noted in a few reviews that despite the movie's name, this isn't really a giallo. It does have a number of the hallmarks of the genre (most notably, there's no real motive for the killer to do what he does, he's just nuts), but it does come off more as a mystery/thriller with a couple of moments that tread in torture porn territory. This is not necessarily a bad thing; Argento's attempts at making gialli recently have been pretty miserable failures. It's also Argento's first feature on which he wasn't the principal writer; this turned out to be a very good idea indeed, as the script, especially the final twist (something I can't imagine Argento doing, which made it a double whammy), is markedly superior to Argento's recent efforts. Brody plays the killer very well, overacting very nicely in comparison to the brooding, mumbling detective (I've seen some criticism of Brody's portrayal of the detective, but I had no problems with him here), and while Seigner doesn't turn in her best effort, she does well enough. While you would be better served watching one of Argento's seventies classics again, this isn't terrible. ** 1/2
Elise H (us) wrote: This movie is a huge tribute to the similar types of movies that came out in the 70s, The Last House in the Woods has hints of TCM throughout but isn't a bad thing in this case. The score is effective in giving the mood of the movie. Don't expect grade A acting out of this Italian flick, but really it shouldn't matter. Most certainly an acquired taste for many.

Jake A (gb) wrote: With a strong performance by Roy Scheider (along with a decent supporting cast), great action and stunts, a solid plot with conspiracy and deception at its heart along with a decent score make this a solidly entertaining action film from the early 80s. Sadly this is often overlooked but doesn't deserve to be ignored.

Van R (ru) wrote: The resurrection ritual to restore Count Dracula becomes very complicated in the fourth Hammer Film with Christopher Lee as the eponymous vampire, Hungarian director Peter Sasdy's "Taste the Blood of Dracula," co-starring Geoffrey Keen, Linda Hayden, and Ralph Bates. Remember, the notorious fangster died when he fell upon a large cross at the end of "Dracula Has Risen from the Grave." Like previous "Dracula" epics from Hammer, "Taste the Blood of Dracula" opens with the count writing in agony on the point of a cross. Nothing that he can do will free him from the cross. A traveling salesman tumbles out of the stagecoach that he was riding in and stumbles aimlessly into sight of the dying vampire. The salesman watches in horror as Dracula dissolves into a heap of dessicated blood. The black, red-lined cape and a signet ring remain all that is left of Dracula. Naturally, Lee returns in top form as Bram Stoker's immortal evildoer. Scenarist John Elder takes a different route to the resurrection than he took in "Dracula, Prince of Darkness." A trio of well-heeled, Victorian business men, who appear to be devout and pious churchgoers, grow bored with their extracurricular activities in a brothel and turn to Black Magic for a thrill, only to discover murder and mayhem. Dracula reappears about a half-hour later in this atmospheric 91-minute chiller and exacts revenge on the thrill seekers for killing his servant. Like the earlier Dracula movie, "Taste the Blood of Dracula" has an illicit, forbidden romance between the heroine and her lover. Ralph Bates makes quite an impression as Dracula's latest incarnation of trusty old Renfield. The sexual scenes of excess primarily consist of the husbands enjoying a woman as she dances with a huge snake.
