Gialli Dreams In Yellow: Volume #2- Macabre (1980)


Gialli Dreams in Yellow will be a series of articles, essays and reviews of my favorite horror sub genre, Giallo. Giallo is the Italian word for YELLOW, but is also used to describe the whole sub-genre of horror films that weave elements of mystery, thriller and horror all into one narrative... sprinkle in over the top violence alongside some gratuitous nudity and you got yourself a GIALLO!  Here are my thoughts on the genre... I hope to infuse some new opinions & thoughts into what I consider the most diverse sub-genre in horror movie history.

First up, a dip in the pool for the son of a Gialli legend: Macabre (1980)
