Giallo x 3

October 13 to October 21

When the Sexual Revolution hit the stronghold of Catholicism, there was bound to be a hell of an explosion—and in Italian pop cinema, this explosion was called giallo. The name means “Yellow,” a reference to the color of the covers which traditionally graced cheap paperback mysteries, and it came to refer to an entire genre of indigenous thrillers defined by their dreamlike narrative illogic, bravura cinematography, wall-to-wall scoring, and above all diseased eroticism and sexual hysteria. So slip on the black gloves, stiffen up with a glass of J & B, and come on down to see three of the freakiest entries in a body of film art not exactly known for restraint.
