  5. rllr's rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    A nice, overtly stylish start if you want to look into the giallo genre. Even if it's a bit tedious, gialli ARE style-over-substance...well, almost by definition. Beautiful ladies are killed by a masked killer with strange methods. All this in very fashionable interiors, lush photography and some of Italy's most beautiful 70s assets (Buchet, Bach and Auger!). 3 stars out of 5. LOVED IT!

  6. Kyle Chiba's rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    The man(dummy) falling from the roof and smashing his(it's) head on the windows was great. Other than that, and the cute kitty, this giallo is pretty boring, Morricone's score wasn't even all that good for the most part.

  7. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    Solid and stylish giallo murder mystery, delivering all the necessary twists, visual flair, and offbeat characters. A prime example of its genre and great entertainment for fans of Italian exploitation. Great score by Ennio Morricone.

  8. HKFanatic's rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    I rewatched this because I'd heard so many people claim it was a superior giallo. Once again I was left shaking my head. Like many giallos, it's a painfully slow detective case that tries to distract you from how damn plodding the script is with a bevy of naked flesh. Somehow Claudine Auger looks like she's aged 10 years since 65's "Thunderball." Even the Ennio Morricone score fills ill-appropriate for the film.

  9. Matt's rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    Has some decent visuals, but everything else is flat and emotionally uninvolving.

  10. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    Weak predictable giallo. Even Ennio Morricone's musical score is bad. The relation between the tarantula's death and the wictims of the serial killer is merely gratuitous and doesn't bring anything to the story. A big disappointment.

  11. Matt Burgess's rating of the film Black Belly of the Tarantula

    Stylish filmed giallo with a lovely Ennio Morricone score but a bit too leisurely paced and the mystery is a little ho-hum and typical for the genre.
