The Classic Horror Cast

This month, Scaredy Friends, Kyle, Erik, and Sean discuss a movie that launched a whole subgenre: giallo, or the Italian pulp-crime-horror film, which was a direct precursor to the slasher movie of the '80s. While not the first, the one that ushered in the trend was Dario Argento's first film, 1970's The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, a movie that isn't quite as gory or as salacious as the films would become, but has nevertheless been the most influential of the bunch.

History of Giallo comin' at ya! And more Italian stuff next month, which decidedly more coprophelia.
