I have been interested in Italian films for the last few years; collecting films, posters, etc. I wanted to showcase some of these items as well as create a place where people could discuss their favorite films and contribute to the overall knowledge of the genre.
Opinions vary as to what exactly makes a film a giallo and exceptions will always occur but there are usually common elements. There is always a murderer, usually an amateur detective because the cops are incompetent, beautiful women, red herrings, and graphic murder scenes. Check out my Giallo Drinking Game to see more common elements from gialli.
