Black Belly of the Tarantula

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.

Another great Giallo! Wonderful performance from Giancarlo Giannini. Nice ending too.

Needed more Catupult. The chase scene was ridiculously long. Reminded me of Mannix. Still fun to watch.

It's not one of the best but it's a pretty good Giallo

Middle of the road. Certainly the tarantula expert would know that throwing one at a person would be completely ineffective?
