Bit of an eclectic list there, I'm assuming.I love the early Giallo's of Argento, Martino, Bava and Ercoli. They are generally bizarre, brutal, with wild plot twists and wonderful soundtracks.
My favourites are:
Cat o' Nine Tails
All The Colours Of The Dark
Death Walks In High Heels
Your Vice Is A Locked Door And Only I Have The Key
Strip Nude For Your Killer
What Have You Done To Solange?
There are more but I can't think of them at the moment.
I think as you get older- subtlety in horror and thriller films >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> in your face gore/see everything.As a kid the nightmare on elm Street films were always a good scare, watched it with older cousins and brothers from about age of 6 or 7. Now they are just funny.
Silence of the lambs i still love, even the last scene in the dark gets me. I did watch it with the folks when it came out on video, was probably 10 or 11. What were they thinking?

I loved that film as a kid, don't recall being scared by it but the scenes when the ship flips upside down and people get thrown around are full on.I remember The Poseidon Adventure scaring me the first time I saw it when I was a kid. And my parents sent me to bed before it had finished. So I had nightmares all night about them not getting out.
I'm not a big fan of streaming services, so I don't know if any of them available. If they aren't, a lot of them are getting released in "restored" versions on Blu-Ray in the UK. Most can't be found in Australia, and of the seventy or so Giallo's I own some aren't worth the cost of importing them, but if you can stomach the violence, the mysogyny and live with the lack of a cohesive plot then you may find them an enjoyable time waster.Bit of an eclectic list there, I'm assuming.
Will look them up.
