A History of Giallo PT 1

“…Giallo was just another of those wonderful genres fit to burst with anti-establishmentarianism. A genre born of fire and brimstone, a desire to push the boundaries of art and cinema – a world of knife wielding murderers and innocent victims in lacy nightgowns”


I’m starting a new series over on ZoboWithAShotgun, talking about the weird and wonderful genre of film known as GIALLO. Beginning with its context within 20th Centry Italian Cinema, we’ll delve into the genres inspirations, its tropes and its legacy. So come have a peek into the bloody soaked world one of Horror’s strangest children.
