    “Why You Should Watch Sleazy Italian Horror Films”

    The thing about giallo is that you can get your audience to watch some life-alteringly unsanitary shit as long as you’ve got a good soundtrack. Splattery farm-tool murder and Eyeball Stuff and buckets and buckets of orange-red blood – you get some hippie noodling on the electric organ and a highly motivated but confused drummer, you can make people bump their heads to crimes against nature.

    If Pitchfork Reviewed TV Dinners

    We’re no strangers to sweet-and-salty mashups.
