The Giallo Returns to London's FrightFest with the Blood-Soaked Short Yellow
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.
