#3 Pill of the Month: Giallo

Gialli are Italian-produced murder-mystery thrillers which feature scenes of excessive violence, often originally choreographed, which blur the lines between art and exploitation cinema. Films of the giallo genre usually include strong elements of horror and eroticism, the latter often in the form of voyeurism.

A high proportion of giallo plots involve a masked black-gloved psychopath brandishing a shiny blade, preying on young beautiful women. However, while most gialli feature this archetypal narrative structure, not all do.

This is not a finished list and its intention is to grow. So feel free to expand it by subscribing to the collage at the end of the post. That way it shows on the torrent page.
