Italian Horror Movies 1956-82

For each film I list both the Italian and English titles (since IMDb seem to change between listing "foreign language" films under their original title and their American title.)

The English titles I use are the ones under which the films are most commonly available on DVD (in America/Britain).

[I've tried to only include "Gialli" with significant "Horror" elements - which ends up being nearly all of them anyway...]
