|Ladies and Gentlemen, The King and Queen|
I was listening to the great Gentlemen's Guide To Midnight Cinema a while back when The Samurai mentioned that when he went for a giallo it was rarely an Argento but a Martino giallo. I thought that was crazy at first but the more I thought about it I realized that I agreed with him. As much as I love Deep Red or The Bird With The Crystal Plumage (or Tenebre or The Cat 'O' Nine Tails) when I usually am in a giallo mood I reach for a Martino giallo (or one that is Martinoish, like The Case Of The Bloody Iris.)
|It doesn't get any cooler than this|
What do you think? Do you reach for Tenebre? The Case Of The Scorpion's Tail? A Lenziani thriller with Carroll Baker? It amazes me that within the giallo subgenre there are many sub subgenres. I love all of them. It depends on the mood I am in. Am I down for an inheritance scheme? A case of mistaken identity? An art induced crime? A psychosexual pervert madman/woman on the loose? What say you?
