Creepy vintage Halloween
On 15 October, 2011 (this Saturday if you're reading this in a timely fashion), the very cool indie toy store & gallery, Monkeyhouse Toys and Gallery (for kids whose sensibility is more Roald Dahl/Tim Burton than Bratz/Hannah Montana) is opening an art exhibit, The Spooky Show.

Giallo en Espanol "Por Fin"

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, August 24, 2008 12:00pm | Post a Comment
Esto es nuestro nuevo vidéo, para la canción Por Fin, que viéne en la edición 1.2 de nuestra serie de 12” EPs titulado isolated incidents.
 
Enfocado en cinta de 16” por Jason Tosta y Steve Carter, y dirigido por Sukho Lee. Directamente inspirado por la cinema Italiana giallo de los 70s (Argento, Bava, etc.) y tomando mucho del lecho de muerte en el hospital de la película Autopsy. Para una versión más clara, visita nuestra website. Es un poco sangrienta, por eso sí no te gusta eso, omitélo.

(Somewhat bloody-- if that's not your thing, skip it.)

Italian Giallo Festival July 11-24

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, July 7, 2008 10:30am | Post a Comment

Film fans in Los Angeles take note, the Egyptian is screening some very rare and completely amazing Giallo this month.

For those of you unfamiliar with the genre a quick search on Wikipedia comes up with this:

Giallo (pronounced IPA['ʤallo]) is an Italian 20th century genre of literature and film. It is closely related to the French fantastique genre, crime fiction, horror fiction and eroticism. The term is also used to mean an example of the genre, in which case it can take the Italian plural gialli. The word giallo is Italian for "yellow" (see Wiktionary: giallo) and stems from the genre's origin in paperback novels with yellow covers.  

All genres have their fair share of crap to wade through, but I feel Giallo is one of the most difficult. It's a catch all genre that DVD companies and, in the past, tape traders padded full of dull "action films," painful "horror" and sleep inducing "sexploitation." Aaah, but like a good Roughie, when you find the right film, it's well worth the wade through the dirty waters. Although the Egyptian festival is by no means complete, it's an amazing selection.There are so many interesting, if not great, Giallos that it would take an annual festival to really do it right....Anyone listening???
