Italian Giallo brought back to life
11 May 2018 | by IndyrodSee all my reviews

Is this the seventies??? nope, but this is a new Italian giallo that if you are a fan of the giallo genre, you would think so. The red gloved killer, the music, all very familiar with giallo films of old. And of course, when the killer is revealed at the end, you were never supposed to guess. The plot is simple, a serial killer is at work, and the police are trying to solve the case. The killings are brutal and very well done, with a great soundtrack to remind us again, this is giallo. I love this genre, and am a huge Dario Argento fan, to me, the grandmaster of the genre. I liked it, it brought back some fond memories of so many Italian movies from that era.
