The giallo film has been away for way too long. And because of that fact this news makes me happy. So if you’re one of those lucky sods who’ll be at London’s Film4 FrightFest this weekend, you’ll have an opportunity to dig on this promising throwback thriller.

From the film’s Facebook page: Yellow is the story of a man obsessed with hunting down a vicious serial killer committing a series of gruesome murders across the neon lit city of 1980’s Berlin. At its core Yellow is a character study of human frailty and the discovery of dark secrets.

It was directed by UK-based Ryan Haysom, and the FX are from German gore maestro Olaf Ittenbach.

“Film 4 FrightFest are thrilled to be presenting the world premiere of Ryan Haysom’s brilliant short Yellow. Fitting perfectly with some of our Italo themed FrightFest 2012 line-up (Tulpa, Paura 3D, Eurocrime!, Berbian Sound Studio, and of course our Total Icon Dario Argento), this work is the strongest giallo inspired short we have ever seen. Yellow is a fantastic addition to our line-up,” said FrightFest’s Paul McEvoy.

As long as it doesn’t turn out like the highly disappointing Amer, I’m sure it’ll be a winner. You can check out the fantastic poster and interesting trailer below. UK residents, do consider seeing Yellow at the Film4 FrightFest at Empire Leicester Square, at 3:30 pm this coming Saturday, the 25th of August.

And if you watch it, let us know how it is. These kinds of films deserve a comeback.

    Why are you giving a non-representative opinion for DreadCentral? Gareth Jones gave Amer a 4.5/5 on the official DVD review for this site, yet you randomly interject your opinion as authoritatively as if it were fact. Bloody-Disgusting gave it a 4/5 and Fangoria gave it a 3.5/4, so among top horror sites, and on your own horror site, you’re giving the minority opinion, haha.

      Minority or not, Matt’s certainly entitled to express his opinion – he’s only speaking for himself not the entire site. All of our writers are encouraged to add a little personal touch to their articles.

        This is infinitely preferable to a policy only allowing positive hype.

        I don’t think as many of us would pay attention to the articles if they were 100% advertisments for a product.

        “…he’s only speaking for himself not the entire site.”
        Well, that’s the whole reason behind my comment: it’s not clear that that’s DC’s policy; I’ve been reading DC for years and I wasn’t aware of that. Being DreadCentral’s official news for this short, and not a personal blog, it doesn’t come off as one person’s opinion, but as the opinion of the site, yet the site’s official review disagrees with it. I’m just pointing out the discrepancy and that most people who read this article would probably assume that what’s written is written as the site’s view, not one person’s.

          If you’ve really been reading us “for years,” then our policy should be pretty obvious. Creepy, Matt, Foy, me, Gash (especially Creepy and Foy) – we all interject our personal opinions in stories. But in any event, thanks for pointing it out – we always appreciated feedback!
