Screaming Queenz Ep 17 - Giallo

August 26, 2016

From the fashion house massacre of Mario Bava's Blood and Black Lace, to Dario Argento's prog-rock gender fluid nightmare Deep Red, to the otherworldly regional horror of Pupi Avati's House with Laughing WIndows, we're dipping our toe in the big messy puddle of style that is the giallo film. So cool it hurts - literally - the giallo film is a staple of Italian cinema that mixes crime thriller and horror with a healthy dose of gender politics and fabulous interiors... not to mention a smattering of queer characters who pop up in the most unlikely places.

So if you're new to giallo, delve in with us. If you're a seasoned vet, see how we get on with our first foray into the black leather gloved mayhem. And if we get hysterical just slap us and take us to bed.

Spoiler alert. Bad language alert. Why else would you listen? ;-)
