The Pyjama Girl Case (1977) starring Ray Milland Blu Ray (Arrow)

This Italian-made mystery, set in Sydney in Australia, was inspired by an actual murder case which occurred in the same area. Far from being the typical giallo, it’s one of those films which could leave the viewer genuinely in two minds about it.

The Case of the Scorpion's Tail (1971) Blu Ray (Arrow)

This typically entertaining Sergio Martino giallo makes up for its convoluted and contrived plot with some energetic setpieces and blood-splattered murders.

Eyes of Laura Mars (1978) Blu Ray (Indicator) starring Faye Dunaway

John Carpenter's script got turned into a pedestrian mystery by director Irvin Kershner, albeit with a dash of style and numerous Vaseline-smeared POV shots.
