The Weinsteins Pick Up Giallo

Dario ArgentoThis month sure has been full of news involving Dario Argento (“Argento Goes Giallo” – January 2008), and why not try to squeeze in a little more until February?

Screen Daily has informed us that the maestro’s latest picture, Giallo starring The Brown Bunny‘s Vincent Gallo, has been picked up for distribution by The Weinstein Company. This isn’t the only Argento film the Weinsteins have ahold of; Mother of Tears is also under their wing as far as the DVD release in concerned.

Giallo will “revolve around serial slashings of some very attractive women being investigated by a solitary cop (Ray Liotta), who engages in a cat-and-mouse game with the psychopathic perpetrator (Vincent Gallo).”

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
