Black Belly of the Tarantula
Directed by Paolo Cavara
A policeman hunts a serial killer who paralyzes his victims before slaying them in this cult giallo hit from MONDO CANE director Paolo Cavara. Italian heartthrob Giancarlo Giannini (HANNIBAL) stars as Inspector Tellini, who’s drawn into the web of a psycho who cuts open his frozen female victims, the same way a rare wasp kills a tarantula. Throw in a mysterious women’s spa, three (yes, three!) Bond girls, and a must-hear score by Ennio Morricone and you’ve got a recipe for a grade-A giallo, as stylish and scary as a killer in a crisp black trench coat.

I enjoyed the suspense in this movie even though the main cop was the dumbest I've ever seen.
A typical giallo but I enjoyed it because of the fact that the cop is the main character instead of being the horrible cop (or dumb cop). An enjoyable film if you enjoy giallo films!
Amazing music by Ennio Morricone & some beautiful Cinematic shots!!
A Good movie for it's time.
