Secret Movie Saturday for March will be discussing one of the most unique cinema movement, The Italian Giallo. What is Italian Giallo?
If you were looking at a shelf of giallo DVDs, you’d find films produced in Italy in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s that could also be classified as historical horrors, crime dramas, and mystery thrillers. The boundaries of what makes a giallo aren’t as well-defined as, say, those of 1980s American slasher films, which tend to follow the same exact story beats. But there are stylistic elements that are inextricable parts of giallo DNA. Nearly all contain gushing gore, erotic themes, a heavy emphasis on visuals (with things like script coherence often taking a back seat), questionable/campy English dubbing, characters gripped by paranoia, gorgeous women in peril, and ruthlessly brutal masked killers fond of sharp objects, rope, and black leather gloves.” (Gizmodo)
Come and let’s watch together a movie from this genre!
