Covering titles produced everywhere from America and Great Britain to Turkey and Japan, this final volume in the So Deadly, So Perverse trilogy offers a final summation of the genre and its lasting cult popularity and appeal. In addition to in-depth coverage of an eclectic range of titles, there are also a number of deliciously sensational and exploitative images, many in full color.The giallo--a specifically Italian brand of lurid thriller--emerged in the 1960s and became a commercial force to be reckoned with throughout the 1970s. While not all of these films achieved the success and notoriety as the most popular efforts by the likes of Mario Bava, Dario Argento or Lucio Fulci, they nevertheless proved to be immensely popular--with latter-day entries emerging well into the 21st century.
