Giallo Home Video Guide

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database


Giallo translated to English means yellow and is a reference to the cheap yellow paperback horror-thriller books that were sold in Italy during the mid 20th century. You could even call them Italian "pulp fiction" paperbacks. Giallo has also become a term used to describe Italian murder-mystery thriller films that became popular in the late 60s to the mid 70s. Decades later, thanks to home video, they found a whole new audience with film geeks all over the world. This giallo guide for beginners will point you to many of the terrific titles now available on DVD and BluRay. To purchase them from, simply click the covers or provided links, and click BUY.
