The Invitation is a super taut thriller with great direction and amazing performances and I invite you to come along and read this spoiler-free review...or I will sacrifice you to the Gods. Well...mostly spoiler-free.
After that great trailer and those amazing screenshots...Bite shot up to my "most anticipated films" list last year...and I simply could not stand waiting to finally see this one. Well...after having seen it...I'm here to say...that sometimes expectations are met with a gross display of disappointment. And when I say gross...I mean more like big mess, rather than cool body horror stuff. Here...let me 'splain.

Francesca is the first new film that I have watched in 2016. It is such a return to form for the Italian genre of giallo, which has remained pretty dormant for decades. Unless you count the surge of neo-gialli that has popped up in recent years. Neo-giallo is sort of a different animal, tho. More on that later. But, let us begin my review of the Onettis' new giallo film...shall we?

Things have been rather quiet on this little Deviant blog as of late. So much so that I have been contemplating a number of different directions to take the entity that is Film Deviant and rejuvenate the entire site. However, life has taken me down several different paths, on a creative level this past year...so, the ideas are all still up in the air. However, let us not discuss those things right now. Let us, instead, talk about the stuff that I enjoyed in 2015.

Perhaps the best name to begin any conversation about Giallo with would be...Dario Argento. Mostly because the man is a living legend. And, while he didn't start the sub genre, he certainly did a lot to make it a substantial one. To cap off our amazing GIALLOWEEN celebration...we take a look at three of the Maestro's most influential gialli.
