Have to agree; couple years ago I sorta burned myself out on giallos but Laughing Windows stood out starkly as one of the very best. Unexpectedly so, even. Now I need to see it again!

Nice work, James. Make sure you check out Pupi Avati's Zeder if you haven't already. While vastly different from Laughing Windows, it also has that unmistakable feeling of dread throughout.

So true Shaun. I've watched this several times in quick succession over the past week or so. I love it. I'm quite keen to check out some more 'rural' gialli now you mention them - and I also recently watched The Short Night of Glass Dolls for the first time. Pardon my ineloquence, but it was fucking brilliant!! I hope to post a review of it over the weekend. In which I will be more composed. Hopefully :o)

Great review James - this, along with "The Short Night of Glass Dolls", is my favourite giallo. A number of gialli were set in rural landscapes and this film makes an excellent companion piece to Lucio Fulci’s masterpiece "Don’t Torture a Duckling". Both show repressed communities simmering with barely concealed perversion and violence. Both also explore the steady encroachment of modernity as it does battle with more primal and superstitious values. This is an unforgettable and hallucinatory film made at a time when gialli had pretty much vanished down a creative cul-de-sac.
