Italsploitation

Immersing myself in spaghetti westerns has led me to other Italian genre film; this list is an attempt to explore gialli, crime, horror, poliziotteschi, and exploitation. Please drop recs in the comments, as I'm the furthest possible thing from an expert in all of these categories.

Thanks to Paul D for the name inspiration.
