Hübsches Video-Essay von Indietrix über das italienische Giallo-Subgenre, dessen Name von Crime-Pulps des Mondatori-Verlages stammt (unten ein paar Cover).

gial1Giallo is a genre of horror from Italy, predominantly in the 70s. Masters like Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento and Mario Bava did their best work on these films, which combine sexuality, violence and gorgeous colour together in a bizarre and fantastic mixture. Here's my guide to giallo, with a warning- strong violent content throughout.

Films featured:
The Girl Who Knew Too Much
Blood and Black Lace
The Bird With The Crystal Plumage
Deep Red
Tenebrae
Don't Torture a Duckling
