        Has anyone here seen Dark Waters? I know it's more of a Lovecraftian horror flick, but it had a very giallo look and feel to it and was curious if anyone here felt the same.
        Memory,prophecy and fantasy-
        the past, the future and
        the dreaming moment between-
        are all one country, living one immortal day.

        To know that is Wisdom. To use it is the Art.
        -Clive Barker

            I can kind of see that........it was more Euro Horror looking to me if that makes any sense.....
            I also really wanted to love it but was not into it at all.

              I have never done drugs and I never will. I was even the best student in the D.A.R.E. program back in the 80s.

                  Try searching for your DVD player here... You might be able to make it region free.


                  Anyone seen Evil Dead Trap or Tell Me Something? Both, especially Tell Me Something, are great Giallo style movies from Asia. Evil Dead Trap (complete with Goblin type score) is from Japan and Tell Me Something is Korean.
                  Very worth a watch if you're looking for something new.\

                    Ahh, but this one's still the best. Jarvis is great with these, I love his Fulci thread too.

                    On the topic of giallos, I came across this book recently:



                    Desciption

                    I should really go back and grab this...

                      I've actually read a lot of negative reviews of that book BuNgLe. I've read that Profondo Argento is the superior book. Planning on getting both at some point though.

                        They say BROKEN MIRRORS,BROKEN MINDS is good too.

                        If you can find it. Or find it at a reasonable price.

                          I have that book and often instead of analyzing the films it gets awfully pretentious.

                          The thing is each film is analyzed by a different writer so some of the films are looked at in the great detail and others come off as pretentious nonsense.

                          I got it brand new though so I'm not complaining.

                            "The stunning Edwige Fenech(CASE OF THE BLOODY IRIS,THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS.WARDH) stars in this infamous shocker that packs more grisly violence and sexual depravity into each frame than most any other film in the entire giallo genre.There's succulent flesh aplenty as a mysterious killer dressed in black leather and wearing a motorcycle helmet begins butchering beautiful fashion models with no mercy and one deranged request: STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER!"

                            Good,sleazy,fun giallo!

                            A model dies on the operating table during an abortion and soon after a mysterious figure begins murdering people at the modeling agency she worked for.

                            LOTS of female nudity (there are pornos with less) and some gruesome kills (some on-screen stabbings but mostly the nastier aftermaths).But for all it's dark themes and nastier elements it doesn't take itself too seriously.Occasionally you might even think you're watching a sex comedy.

                            Recommended to those wanting to explore the more exploitational (as in "sleazy")side of giallo rather than the artistic and Edwige Fenech fans (like me!).

                            Directed by Andrea (BURIAL GROUND:NIGHTS OF TERROR) Bianchi.That should tell you something about the level of "taste" you should expect.

                            8/10 Italo-Trash fun! Don't expect an Argento or Bava.

                            You might rate it lower.Any movie that has Edwige in it scores at least a point or two from me for that alone.

                              That was the next giallo I was planning on grabbing.

                              My Bava box set literally just arrived at my door though, so I have a busy day ahead of me.

                                I need to get that box set.

                                I already have most of the movies (most on tape) but tape isn't good enough for Bava.

                                Nothing like opening the mail and finding something like that, is there?
