So Deadly, So Perverse : Giallo-Style Films From Around the World, Vol. 3
by Troy Howarth




Overview -

The giallo--a specifically Italian brand of lurid thriller--emerged in the 1960s and became a commercial force to be reckoned with throughout the 1970s. While not all of these films achieved the success and notoriety as the most popular efforts by the likes of Mario Bava, Dario Argento or Lucio Fulci, they nevertheless proved to be immensely popular--with latter-day entries emerging well into the 21st century. They also proved to be influential on films from across the globe; for instance, they helped to set the stage for the slasher movie boom of the late 70s and early 80s, and they would go on to inspire contemporary filmmakers looking to pay homage to their baroque excesses. So Deadly, So Perverse: Volume 3 shines a light on some of these films, some of which are well-known for capturing the off-kilter vibe of these beloved cult classics, and some of which display an influence in more surprising ways. Covering titles produced everywhere from America and Great Britain to Turkey and Japan, this final volume in the So Deadly, So Perverse trilogy offers a final summation of the genre and its lasting cult popularity and appeal. In addition to in-depth coverage of an eclectic range of titles, there are also a number of deliciously sensational and exploitative images, many in full color.The giallo--a specifically Italian brand of lurid thriller--emerged in the 1960s and became a commercial force to be reckoned with throughout the 1970s.
