Black Belly of the Tarantula (1971)

The Black Belly of the Tarantula (La tarantola dal ventre nero) is considered one of the superior giallos. And it\s been staying in my Giallo B collection for at least ten years since I saw it now. And now I can concur. It is.
A film by Paulo Cavara who might be unknown now but he worked on the Mondo Cane movies.
Music by Ennio Morricone, conducted by Bruno Nicolai
Uncommon for the giallos of the perios the protagonist is a police inspector, played by an "unual suspect" of giallo genre, a very young Giancarlo Giannini.
The very hot blonde Barabara Bouchet is killed in the very beginning and the also very hot future Bond girl and mrs. Ringo Starr, Barbara Bach is killed later, and she shows up just a few minutes, enough to undress of course stabbed to death...The real two female protagonists of the film are Claudine Auger, a deja Bond girl -in Thunderball- and Stefania Sandrelli (Il Conformista).
Shot with plenty of zooms by Marcello Gatti, who filmed Battle of Algiers, Quiemada/Burn and Ogro fpr Pontecuorvo, A\L'anonimo Veneziano, The Salamander and la Piovra for TV !
a great chase on the rooftops is the highlight except the MO of the murders which remind a Tarantula being killed by a black WASP !
format -1.85 :1
Barbara Bach, Barbara Bouchet, and Giancarlo Giannini in La tarantola dal ventre nero (1971)
3 1/2 -7 out of 10 !
