History of Exploitation
Join us as we explore the wild and offbeat cinema that played the roadshows, drive-ins and grindhouses.
Giallo Cinema
Giallo (translated into English means yellow) was a term used for the cheap yellow paperback horror-thriller books that were sold in Italy during the mid 20th century. Giallo is also a genre of Italian murder-mystery movies which became popular in the 60s and 70s. Over the decades this stylish European form of cinema has found a new appreciation and resurgence in popularity. At GCDb we love the gialli and consider them some of the coolest kinds of thrillers ever made. This volume of our History of Exploitation Cinema series is dedicated to GIALLO CINEMA!
Giallo on Bluray
Thanks to the many home video distributors in Europe and the US, giallo cinema is now available for film enthusiasts to explore and collect on DVD & BluRay. GCDb has an extensive catalog of these films but for our History series we've picked a few notable entries we highly recommend to both newcomers and aficionados.

Sergio Martino's THE CASE OF THE SCORPION'S TAIL (1971) is one of our favorite films that delivers all the lurid thrills. It's got the iconic killer clad in black, beautiful women, exotic locales and red herrings. The stunning cinematography, direction and score by Bruno Nicolai make it a giallo cinema gem.
