After eagerly finding out Mik had opened a new thread on a branch of cinema I was completely ignorant of, something funny has happened. I have made friends with two young German cineastes who are real connoisseurs in the field of Giallo and are trying to reveal this unknown world to me. I'm still pretty ignorant, but this is definitely going to change. So I might be able to contribute further comments to this thread in the future. I just hope Mik and the other members also get the opportunity to see more of these films.
Here in Germany we are currently experiencing a kind of renaissance of Giallo and Poliziotteschi films on DVD as dozens of them have been released in uncensored and often remastered versions during the last months.
