parliamo giallo

Ciao again dear readers. Here I go again with a new chapter of PARLIAMO GIALLO, only on HORRORSEXY.COM. This week we are learning about some animals. I you are a fan of gialli, and I know you are, you may have noticed how many registi (directors) include names of animals in the title. Most of the time, as it happens in Argento’s The Bird of the Crystal Plumage, this animal would be the key for solving the murders.


The most popular animal in gallo is Il Gatto, often il gatto nero aka black cat. as for example in Antonio Bido’s IL GATTO DAGLI OCCHI DI GIADA, Dario Argento’s IL GATTO A NOVE CODE,  Lucio Fulci’s  GATTO NERO and UN GATTO NEL CERVELLO and Umberto Lenzi’s  GATTI ROSSI IN UN LABIRINTO DI VIETRO

Dario Argento popularized in his first feature film this little animal called uccello -bird for us-. and also flies in Quatro mosche di velluto grigio


For Tessari’s the horror remains in a farfalla, a beautiful butterfly!


Fulci also thought of a lucertola – lizard- , Freda of an iguana and Cavara of a tarantola
