abstract
With its roots in the pulpy crime novels of the 1920s and 30s, Giallo cinema or Italian horror cinema, as it's more commonly known, first emerged in the late 1960s. Following the neo-realists, the giallo films represented a radical break with Italy's cinematic past. This documentary presents an informative historical overview of the giallo genre, exploring its genesis and chronicling the films, directors, and personalities that made up its golden age. Includes interviews with a fascinating group of filmmakers who redefined the horror genre and forever changed the way we think of horror films.
