I heard of a Horror movie called the beyond, these were the day, the goldens year, when Italian made surrealistic horror movies, not about sadist or grossing people up, but about hellish stuff, I wonder why this genre died, nowadays horror movies are extremely tame and lame, I recall back in the days going to a friend house horror aficionados an all the best films were Italians brewed.

D'argento I'm aware seen many movies of him, but Fulci film I did not see them, but some people say Fulci's pull out even scarier movies than D'argento's.

I want to see The Beyond by Fulci but not available anywhere jeez I wonder why perhaps I don't know how to search, and streaming you can get crap, are there a place on the web where you can watch old horror movie freebies of the Italians genies.

Beside Argento and Fulci , who were the top gun of the horror genre, any obscure names please, no Gore movie or some stupid possession movie of nowaday.

Name a movie that was downward spooky to a point of being hellish, you seen once in you're past but would not watch again since when a youth it literally scarred the living hell of you forever, Giallo movies. Sorry if there a tread somewhere of this I did not search for this subject matter.

What is your favourite horror movie Italy brewed?
Movies that are dark pitch dark, movies you remember hiding your face of the screen not because gross-out but utterly scared, obscure movie of 70'' and 80''.

Then I ask why people kill the Horror Giallo genre should there be a revival of them?

I totally hate the genre called torture porn it's basically gross for nothing not scarry more disgusting for no reason, this genre kill the real horror movies, and Christian friendly horror movie made for the Ned Flanders of this world.

I needed some extra (Wiki) information:

Giallo is a 20th-century Italian genre of literature and film. Especially outside of Italy, giallo refers specifically to a particular Italian thriller-horror genre that has mystery or detective elements and often contains slasher, crime fiction, psychological thriller, psychological horror, sexploitation, and, less frequently, supernatural horror elements. In Italy, the term generally denotes thrillers, typically of the crime fiction, mystery, and horror subgenres, regardless of the film's country of origin.

In English-speaking countries, the term giallo often refers to the Italian film version of the genre, a particular style of Italian-produced murder mystery thriller-horror film that usually blends the atmosphere and suspense of thriller fiction with elements of horror fiction (such as slasher violence) and eroticism (similar to the French fantastique genre), and often involves a mysterious killer whose identity is not revealed until the final act of the film. The genre developed in the mid-to-late 1960s, peaked in popularity during the 1970s, and subsequently declined over the next few decades. (Some examples continue to be produced). It has been considered to be a predecessor to, and significant influence on, the later American slasher film genre.

The word giallo is Italian for yellow. The term derives from a series of cheap paperback mystery novels with yellow covers that were popular in post-fascist Italy.
Gialli often feature lurid or baroque titles, frequently employing animal references or the use of numbers.[9] Examples of the former trend include Sette scialli di seta gialla (Crimes of the Black Cat), Non si sevizia un paperino (Don't Torture a Duckling), La morte negli occhi del gatto (Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye) and La tarantola dal ventre nero (Black Belly of the Tarantula); while instances of the latter include Sette note in nero (Seven Notes in Black) and The Fifth Cord.

I've never seen one and don't regret it.

Lucio Fulci 17 June 1927 – 13 March 1996) was an Italian film director, screenwriter, producer, and actor.

Although he worked in a wide array of genres through a career spanning nearly five decades, including comedy, spaghetti western, adventure, science fiction and erotica, he garnered an international cult following for his giallo and horror films. His most notable films include the "Gates of Hell" trilogy—City of the Living Dead (1980), The Beyond (1981), and The House by the Cemetery (1981)—as well as Massacre Time (1966), One on Top of the Other (1969), A Lizard in a Woman's Skin (1971), Don't Torture a Duckling (1972), White Fang (1973), Four of the Apocalypse (1975), Sette note in nero (1977), Zombi 2 (1979), Contraband (1980), The Black Cat (1981), The New York Ripper (1982), Murder Rock (1984), and A Cat in the Brain (1990).

Because of the high level of visceral graphic violence present in many of his films, especially Zombi 2 and The Beyond, Fulci is frequently referred to as "The Godfather of Gore",[1] a title also given to Herschell Gordon Lewis.

I used to watch a few Argento and Fulci videos with my friends on a Saturday night. The Fulci ones were the most horrifying, “The Beyond” sounds familiar. I really don’t enjoy long drawn out and realistic sadistic stuff or hostage films.
