The interview segments are super informative - unsure why they bother some viewers? I've been watching giallos for over 35 years and was surprised to learn of 5-6 that I hadn't heard of - hopefully they will find a future home on Shudder! A great documentary for the giallo purist.

As a casual Giallo fan, this gave me a broader overview of the genre, its origins, and some of it's bigger names and titles - utterly fascinating. The documentary itself is a little rushed and chaotic, but this kind of works with the subject matter, so I had a good time whilst learning more about an scene that I intent to do a lot more investigation about!

a missed opportunity. i wasn't bored once by the interview segments but it's unfocused and there was honestly way more everyone could have gotten into. this has all the heavy hitters from the giallo genre so it's a must-see nevertheless

Good overall, but really heavy on LONG interview segments.
