Death Wears Black Gloves: The Essential Giallo Series

The term "giallo" (the Italian word for "yellow") derives from a series of pulp paperback murder mysteries with yellow covers that were popular in Italy in the early 20th century. The "giallo" film genre, which started in 1963 and peaked in the 1970's, was a heavily stylized mixture of erotic crime-thriller and lurid horror; featuring striking cinematography, lavish set design, glamorous fashion, and groovy ethereal music (frequently by Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Nora Orlandi, or Goblin). This unique suspense genre was heavily influenced by Alfred Hitchcock's films and American film noir, and was the precursor to the American slasher film.

Our series features 4 seminal titles from the 1970’s, and is hosted by local giallo expert Madeleine Froth. As a nod to giallo style, we will make sure there are a few fun surprises in store for attendees of the series!
