Classical giallo (Blood and Black Lace,The Bird with the Chrystal Plumage,Who Saw Her Die?...)
Poliziotto giallo (Black Belly of the Tarantula,Death Occurred last Night,So Sweet,So Dead...)
Suspense giallo (The Sweet Body of Deborah,Orgasmo,Perversion Story...)
Giallo-fantastico (Suspiria,Inferno,Malocchio...)
Any really. I've seen Crystal Plumage, Suspiria and Inferno, loved them all so I'll check Classical and Giallo-fantastico first. I've got the two bava boxsets too. I was thinking of getting Fulci's Don't torture a Duckling and maybe a few other BU releases.
I like gory Giallo's, but I also like the classic ones and the suspense ones, so I guess if a film is classed any type of giallo, I'll like it.

Sounds ok to me.
I'll have to think about suggestions...
Do you already have the Optimum Lizard in a Woman's Skin?
It's available at a bargain price right now.
Amazon UK

Oh my,I totally forgot!

Well,let's see.
Some very affordable,easy to get gialli suggestions...(of course I would also recommend all early Argento gialli)

Odeon UK (nicer cover imo)/oop AB UK
- Hatchet for the Honeymoon

BU
- Case of the Bloody Iris
- The Bloodstained Shadow
- The Fifth Cord
- Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye
- The Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion
- Hitch-Hike (borderline giallo)
- The Pyjama Girl Case
- Delirium
- Don't Torture a Duckling
- Short Night of Glass Dolls
- The Black Belly of the Tarantula
- A Blade in the Dark
- Stagefright (borderline again)

Dark Sky
-Naked You Die (cheap on Amazon it seems)

I would also try to find a cheap Mondo Macabro UK (don't know how much these are nowadays?) Death Walks at Midnight.

I may have missed some cheapos.

I had that MM Death Walks at Midnight but swapped it. Wish I hadn't.

The Vipco release of A Blade in the Dark is worth having. There are no extras but it has a lovely 16/9 transfer (DVD Delirium say's it doesn't, but trust me it does). You can get it for 75p on Amazon UK.

Haha, sure
I'll add all of those too my wish list! I've seen all of Argento's films, and the only one I have from the list is Case Of The Bloody Iris so I'll try and get as many of those as I can Thanks for the suggestions!
I'll check out the trailers for all of them and then pick from there

Also, has anyone heard of a film called Amer? I think it's french. It was released last year and is apparently a tribute to Argento and Bava. The trailer makes it look promising. Also, I think they used the soundtrack to What Have They Done To Your Daughters on the trailer! I might be wrong.

Edit:
the trailer
Think I'm wrong about the soundtrack, but it's similar.

I'll get that Vipco release! I had a Region 1 version of it in my wish list. I didn't know L Bava did any Giallo.

It's French/Belgian but from what I've heard it's rather arty and some giallo fans don't seem to like it.
I haven't seen it yet but I will probably get the French dvd when it's released.
They did use well known giallo tunes for the soundtrack.
