Carlo Lizzani's "La Casa del Tappeto Giallo" is based on a play by Aldo Selleri.It's very interesting and quite original psychological giallo about a young couple Antonio and Franca.Franca inherited yellow carpet from her abusive stepfather.Antonio wants to sell yellow carpet and puts an ad in the local newspaper.During the absence of Antonio Franca is visited by a middle-aged man with a paralyzed hand.This mysterious man becomes more threatening and violent as he tells Franca that he killed his wife on the same carpet Franca is selling."The House of the Yellow Carpet" is an atmospheric and theatrical giallo which mostly takes place in a small apartment.The acting is excellent and there are two nasty moments including vicious stabbing and syringe in the eye moment.7 yellow carpets out of 10.
