To coincide with Arrow Video’s release of the first three entries in their Masters Of Giallo series (the first time Dario Argento’s Sleepless (2000), Lamberto Bava’s Macabre (1980), and Lucio Fulci’s House By The Cemetery (1981) have been released uncut in the UK), Arrow has set up a special “Weekend of Italian Terror” screening event at Scotland’s Glasgow Film Theatre on Saturday-Sunday, June 27-28.

House By The Cemetery will be shown on the 27th at 9 p.m. Then on the 28th, Deodato’s gruesome gore-soaked jungle action film Cut And Run (1985) will start the evening at 5:30 p.m., with Deodato making his first-ever Scottish appearance to introduce the film and take part in a Q&A with Fangoria writer Calum Waddell. Finally Macabre follows at 8 p.m., with Lamberto Bava also making his first appearance in Scotland for an introduction and Q&A with Calum Waddell. Tickets will be on sale soon at the GFT site linked above.

Here’s the excellent artwork for the three releases:

Ruggero Deodato plans Gialli trilogy

Posted in Giallo, Horror, Ruggero Deodato with tags , , on March 24, 2009 by eibonblog

Ruggero Deodato's CannibalsInfamous cult Italian director, Ruggero Deodata (Cannibal Holocaust, House At The Edge Of The Park) has announced at the recent Fangoria ‘Weekend Of Horrors’ that he is planning a trilogy of giallo films as his next project.

 "I have written the scripts for three new giallo movies. I am especially fond of one of these scripts. It is a more serious take on the giallo – it is not crazy like some of the recent Dario Argento pictures. It is very realistic although it still has the violence which the fans will expect."

Deodato is currently putting his finishing touches to the sequel-cum-companion piece to his infamous 1980 cannibal classic Cannibal Holocaust, appropriately titled Cannibals.
