The American version contains entirely new footage in different parts of the film that drastically changes its tone and atmosphere. It also replaces the original Italian score by Roberto Nicolosi (and removes Adriano Celentano’s opening song Furore) with a new original score by Les Baxter.

    The very first “giallo” ever. Watch the Italian version, the American one has been chopped up and added “comic relief” scenes that render it a parody. Or better yet, watch both and then compare. Thanks for posting these great classics, Rarelust.

      I think you are right to compare both versions, because editing can really give a movie a certain mood which sometimes is not what the genuine intention was.
      It is rare that the American cut of a movie is longer than the original, but we have to consider Italy was very conservative even restrictive in censoring movies, but still I am curious when this is probably the 1st giallo, thx!
