Midnight Titbits: Giallo Films

Giallo is an Italian contribution to the spectrum of genres and ideal stuff for our midnight section. Mysterious masked killers in red gloves chasing defenceless victims, mostly women, glamorous sets, blood pools redder than red, stylized camera, Morricone’s or Goblins’ music and a little bit of erotica. You can look forward to both iconic classics and true midnight oddities. An influence of giallo films on world and contemporary cinema will also be discussed. Bring a pair of leather gloves and some old yellowed paperbacks!
