What is giallo film?
The term has over time come to refer to a very specific type of Italian-produced thriller.
Based upon crime novels that had yellow covers, they began as literal adaptations of the books.
Soon notable directors in the 1970’s began taking advantage of modern cinematic techniques
to create a unique genre which veered into horror and psychological thrillers.
Giallo films are characterized by extended murder sequences featuring excessive bloodletting,
stylish camerawork and unusual musical arrangements.
The literary whodunit element is retained, but combined with modern slasher horror,
while being filtered through Italy’s longstanding tradition of opera and staged grand guignol drama.
They also generally include liberal amounts of nudity and sex.
These films soundtracks were the inspiration behind this album.
