So, is making a giallo film an absolute hellhole of genera crossover insanity a good idea? Ala making shit like a giallo that is part cult film or some shit


 No.2060933

>>2060053

Cult film isn't a genre per se, but a good giallo is almost guaranteed to gather a cult following.

Giallo crossovers can work well, it's all about staying stylish and keeping the suspense tense and the stakes high.

Making a period piece is harder than making one set in the present though, as it's easy to make mistakes and insert anachronistic elements. And it doesn't have to be a GoT tier blunder like their coffee cup, there's simpler details that can ruin things. A new license plate. The wrong hi-fi system. An unreleased song. A clothing item that was invented later. The wrong kind of light fixture. Even masterpieces like Mary Harron's American Psycho are plagued with this kind of problems. But they're subtle enough to take an specialist to tell. I couldn't spot any of those, because they aren't glaring, they knew what they were doing. But in other productions you see things like people using LCD monitors during the Gulf War. The exact model of anything you show doesn't matter as much as its look, nobody is going to have their immersion shattered because you put the wrong turntable model, but if you pick one with a modern desk it becomes a problem. Don't put an ultrabook in a film set in 2005 or a SPAS shotgun in a film set in the 60s, unless time travel is implied. Don't refer to events if your setting predates them.


 No.2060941

By cult I mean the bad regions type one, but still thanks for the advice, Also doing shit like making one part jaws ripoff is another one of my ideas


 No.2061069

>>2060941

Oh you mean a film about a cult.

Sounds like a good crossover, good call on the shark thing too. Giallo directors did that kind of thing all the time.

Ruggero Deodato made a movie called Affare Concorde, which was a ripoff of The Concorde … Airport '79 with diving scenes which had elements from the James Bond movies and also sharks.

Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 had an infamous scene where a topless girl fights a zombie underwater and a shark shows up to put an end to the fight.

I can't imagine what a giallo/sharksploitation crossover would be like but it's definitely doable. There were giallo/poliziotteschi crossovers like Massimo Dallamano's La polizia chiede aiuto (an absolute classic, you can't miss it) and even Flashdance giallo ripoffs like Fulci's Murderock - Uccide a passo di danza.

Maybe you could make up some sea cult as a way to bind everything together. I'm not talking some Dagon style cult but something more mundane, involving rituals and beliefs which make the followers obey the cult leader no matter what. Maybe this cult can be hinted to be the one making offers to their god so they're behind some murders and atrocities but then it turns out it's a red herring and they're fucked up but someone is using them to cover his own crimes. Just throwing this idea here because it's typical in gialli to give you a prime suspect only to then reveal they were just part of the bigger problem or even not involved at all.

Voodoo works well too, because tropical locations and sharks go well together. But it requires niggers and at the very least a location that looks tropical. I'd probably avoid it if I were you.

Alternatively you could have the characters travel between different locations, but be careful or you'll end up with disjointed shorts instead of a feature film.

Sorry if anything I said sounds incoherent, it's two in the morning here already.

>>2061069

Also don't forget about all the Giallo X Spy film crossovers there somehow are, or the giallo X Spaghetti western ones, or gothic horror x giallo films, So a Giallo that is part jaws ripoff, Let alone something as big as making one part fucking kaiju film, is possible, Am I correct? Also the cult premise I was thinking about was there are two killers, One is a guy who is being roped into killing innocent people by the other killer, who both is killing other people while making it look like the innocent people the one guy is killing are part of a cult, While the voluntary killer is actually the creator and founder of the cult that he is making those innocent people look like they are a part of, And he wants to drive the other guy absolutely mad before killing him to summon an eldrich abomination, Does that sound good?

Oh and also not forgetting Drug reliant giallos that are very much psychadellica type films such as "Madness - Gli Occhi Della Luna" 1971 or "The Mushroom" 1970, There's some other weird Giallo crossover generas that prove that the giallo genera has a lot more weird ass generas that it can logically(Or non logically depending on how you want it) crossover with


 No.2061106

>>2061086

It's confusing to read it like this but I think I got what you mean and it doesn't sound bad. You could even include a cynical cop who says they had it coming for being in the cult. I recommend you check out Housewife, it might give you some ideas.

The kaiju part sounds like a budget nightmare, but other than that it's possible. Just make sure you don't cram so many stuff in one film that you run out of time to tell everything.

>>2061093

The possibilities are endless. You can also make psychedelic giallos without even having to feature drugs, just mental illness.

Next reply might take long, it's late here.

Also pointing on the post from 933, Would doing weird timey wimey shit for making a film made down to an exact in 1977, and putting a not very real looking gun model from the future, aka doing it so that it's more 60's sci-fi gun quality for an actual gun model, for a film as more of a purposeful confusion tactic type method, Would that be a good idea? Also look, I know the fucking kaiju giallo thing is gonna be long, After all, there has to be two fucking sets of main characters in it, and real gore level gore, Also are island slash films sorta related to the giallo genera? By island slash I am talking about film like Island of death 1976, Who could kill a child 1976, Nine guests for a crime 1977, and a few others, Also for the Cult Killer Giallo the main character when he finds out the other killer is responsible for all his suffering and killing innocent people, he knows he won't be able to convince the police that he's innocent, So he mannages to kill the killer, And then dissapears from general and overall socity at the end, leaving the police still baffled on the two absolutely different types of killing from all the people left dead by both of them, With the main character more just wanting to put people out of their missery as fast as possible, with the exception of the killer, and the Killer killing people very elaborately and brutally, Thus leaving the police having to put the case at a semi-unsolved status and close it


 No.2061134

>>2061123

>>2061106

Also as another sidenote for when you get back, which would be better for the jaws ripoff type giallo, Having the jaws ripoff part not really play very much a role with the film, and there just being a killer and some scenes just have an animal killing people that isn't really connceted to the plot, The killer and the animal somehow working together, Aka people start dissapearing from swimming in a river, while the laketown is being terrorised by a savage chain of murders happening, or the final and most creative way of doing it, that's also a little bit like scooby doo, Having the killer kill people like an animal, So that people think a real animal is going around killing people, because of how in depth he has gone to make it seem like it's an animal so he can get away with it, until he get's caught and mostlikely killed, revealing a human was causing all this shit?

>>2061123

A fictional gun works, it could be even explained as some sort of lost technology. You can even say it's a prototype or something. But anything that would have worked back then should work now.

I haven't seen the films you mentioned but from the title I believe Nine guests for a crime is most likely giallo, titles with numbers in them alluding to gruesome or unsettling themes are a typical trait.

About the length, if you feel like it's going to get too long you're better off trimming or leaving some material for a future project than overextending the film. Exceeding the 2 hour limit is a privilege your film must earn.

Also I wouldn't post so many details about the movie here, you never know who is lurking. The last thing you want is having your idea stolen and ruined.

Also another option you could have is that the second killer at first wants to stop the main one but after he is forced to kill he ends up liking it (Scream Queens did this, the entire show is full of gialloesque characteristics. I hate to recommend it after what Emma Roberts did but it's just too good. The killing methods are always creative like in a good giallo, the cinematography is impressive and the aesthetics are very stylish. Some parts are kinda dumb for fun's sake and the show is tamer than it could be because of the TV-14 certification, but if you don't mind a tongue-in-cheek approach to slasher you're going for have a great time).

>>2061134

You could also make the killer do things like injuring people in the water with a sharp weapon and letting them get eaten afterwards, maybe even filming it and collecting the tapes/reels.

I like the idea of making the killings seem to be done by an animal, maybe you could show the victim getting into the water and then the water becomes red and they disappear. The possibilities are endless.

A last recommendation: try making a short first, it can help you detect shortcomings and if it's good enough it might even help you get funding. Also how do you feel about shooting commercials to gain some experience, make some contacts and make some bucks? If you get the chance I think you should do it. It's a great stepping stone.


 No.2061626

The third way is confusingly complicated and weird, so it's the most appropriate for a giallo.

Why not just ignore time and date altogether and never pin it down to a definite year?


 No.2061634

>>2061626

Yeah I agree, the more convoluted the better.

Also setting it in an specific year is bound to cause more problems than setting it in a general era. But it would be arguably worse to do like David Robert Mitchell's attempt at timelessness where he mixed old things with new real things and fictional ones. In my eyes, the latest prop sets the date. To me, an old TV doesn't evoke older times if it's surrounded by smartphones, it means they either couldn't afford a new one, that the old one had sentimental value or that they're simply hipsters or like old stuff for its aesthetics.

Also, as another note, How would you guys like a Giallo set in late 1960's Japan, Aka the premise being that 4 european friends go to Japan for a small vacation, A detective, a police officer, Another guy who is a friend of the detective, and what will mostlikely be the girlfriend of the police officer, When all of a sudden when they arrive, A big chain of murders is happening across japan by an unknown person, And now japan is Willing to hire the detective and police officer to try to help solve who or what is killing all these seemingly random japanese people


 No.2061724

>>2061702

I don't dislike it on principle but foreign locations increase the costs. Shooting anywhere and calling it Japan is hackish, it's too distinct of a place for you to get away with it. Look at John Carpenter's early career, or even Tarantino's.

And speaking of Tarantino, maybe it would be wise for you to start by making screenplays and trying to get some of them made. He's a hack who stole most of Reservoir Dogs but he also worked his ass off to become a director.

I also insist you give shorts a shot. If you make a good one and manage to get noticed by some producer you might even be able to make a feature film that isn't poverty tier.

It's easy to fail spectacularly in film, so it's desirable to have someone to give you honest opinions and keep you grounded. You don't want to end up hurting your own work because you got overly ambitious.

Also some tips: if the face isn't seen when the character is speaking, dubbing becomes a lot easier so it can come in handy if your actor struggles with the line. Look for local locations. Make use of things you have available. Those things shrink the budget a lot. Better Call Saul is a show with great examples of this. Every time Jimmy films a commercial he's boosting the production values with creativity. The stair lift and the wheelchair used as dollies, the billboard used as a prop, there's also a great deal of clandestine filmmaking going on (you have to evaluate whether the risks are worth it though).

A24 is trash for the most part.

Argentina seems to be the country with the most interesting output.

I haven't seen any of these films but the trailers look good:

Sonno Profondo (2013, Luciano Onetti)

Francesca (2015, Luciano Onetti)

Mirada de Cristal (2017, Ezequiel Endelman, Leandro Montejano)

Abrakadabra (2018, Luciano Onetti and Nicolás Onetti)

Then again Amer had an amazing trailer and it was absolute garbage.

The slasher genre has been more generous lately thanks to guys like Panos Cosmatos with his masterpieces Beyond the Black Rainbow and Mandy. Then you have Turkish horror, guys like Can Evenrol with Housewife.

>>2065485

That's the hardest part.

And I think making it retro and poverty spec in particular isn't the easiest thing to achieve. The clothing alone would consume a lot of money unless you have a stash of 70s clothes you can use.

The most expensive part of making a movie is rarely the cameras and film, it's the wardrobes, props, sets, locations and wages for the cast and crew. Even if they're friends acting for free you need to get them food, a place where they can change their clothes, makeup and whatnot.

Sorry for taking long to reply, but lately I can only do a flash visit to the boards very late if at all.

One caveat: avoid fan-made trailers on youtube. They will spoil and ruin the movie.

Tragic ceremony 1972 at least didn't spoil much, and when it could spoil the third plot detail, it instead leaded it as a cliffhanger, Pretty good trailer as well overall, Also how much art/Color stuff is too much for a giallo trailer? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwJ5nxbXl7o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efpfrf_5J-Y Are the examples of art, with the latter being the example of maybe color overdose, yet not spoiling very much at all which is good

As another side note, is "The Student Connection" 1974 a giallo? It does have a very giallo-like if not it being a giallo plot, but then again does kill literally around ~100 people near the beginning just a question, Also try this

That looks more like like a poliziottesco, like Roma Violenta or others. It even has Maurizio Merli in it. The chases in those films are great. Sometimes you have a crossover like in La polizia chiede aiuto/What have they done to our daughters, from 1974.

tagging onto this about the random acts of violence. Italy was not a stable place after world war 2. There was rampant crime (the allied occupation, among other things, had reinstated the mafia that Cesare Mori had effectively wiped out), and leftist groups routinely performing terror attacks and holding strikes for political motives and ransoms and similar.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Years_of_Lead_(Italy) from the 60s to the 80s (it all really ramped up after the Borghese attempted coup which the Greek Junta supported) Italy had a lot of anarchist and political violence and The cinema reflects that.

Having the guy be killed by a quasi-religious cult organized like a paramilitary wing of some obscure political group fits the weird kind of shit that italy was into at the time but I wouldn't necessarily say having a movement stem from one man's death makes all that much sense.

Much of italian cinema at the time stems from seeing things in foreign movies and thinking the idea looked or sounded cool and borrowing aesthetic content or plot devices and placing them in original stories. e.g. Django 1966 ripped off the man wandering pulling a coffin from a comic book that the writer saw–but the story itself is original.

It's not an unheard of trope. Day of the Triffids (UK, 1962, it was featured in the /tv/ film club) did that exactly, with criminals taking advantage of the chaos to escape prison and have things their way.

>>2071624

Perfectly fine. In fact, going back to La polizia chiede aiuto, one of the first suspects of one of the murders is a leftist agitator.

You should probably try to draft a screenplay and it will help you separate the wheat from the chaff. When you start writing things down the bloat becomes more evident and easier to trim.

Absolutely agree, the thing with Italian ripoffs is that they exercise some restraint, they rip off the cool stuff without making a complete clone. That's what exploitation is about.

And that's how for example ripping off Rambo yielded a result that is in certain aspects superior, Blastfighter.

It somewhat worries me that he's attempting to emulate "bad" gialli instead of going for the classics for inspiration. That said Amer went for the classics as inspiration and it's a fucking disgraceful trainwreck. I viciously hate that movie. Faggots aping elements of the giallo look and using them where they have an anticlimactic effect.

>>2081615

Watch Amer so that you know what not to do. I believe you'd run into some of the opposite problems as they did, because it looks like you have too much material for a feature film and theirs is a feature-length short. Some of the visuals are good but empty. There's no real story to the movie. Someone described it as a "87 minute long perfume commercial" and they're not wrong. However, it is also a lesson in misuse of imagery. For example, you have stare duels with no real tension to justify them and no real conclusion to them, that last minutes. All because they wanted to put a stare duel there. Don't put stuff in the movie just for the sake of putting it there, and if you do, make it brief. Don't spend 5 minutes showing a white shark swimming and eating its prey only to then go back to the characters and not doing anything even related to the shark in the rest of the movie. This is just an example, it applies to anything.

Some of them were aware that they were making stuff for an easy buck, the classic gialli were done by true auteurs but there's a lot that is trash just because they knew they could make some profit. That said, they were probably trying to do the most dignified thing they could given what they had to work with.

Ironically as much of a hack as Tarantino is, his grindhouse special Death Proof is pretty decent.

>"Blue Desert" 1983

I had a hard time tracking that one down. It was The Desert. Ended up finding it after googling "Cunyet shark 1983". Try using the original title for films if you know it, it removes all ambiguity. In this case it's "Çöl". There was an American bootleg title as well, "Turkish Jaws".

>how it randomly introduced a shark to have cunyet fight against?

Randomly introducing a shark to have someone fight against it could be bad but it's not as bad as introducing a shark and then doing nothing with it. Unless it's a red herring, of course. But for that to work you should probably have some of the characters interact in some way with it, at the very least have them see its fin at some point. When I said "shark" it was just an example, it could be a scientist developing a special type of weapon that kills leaving no trace for example, only to then keep moving and not bringing up the scientist or the weapon again.

>Also what about going for a more Mania 1974 bizarre hellhole type show on purpose, Aka the Polselli style for a film, or doing shit like cutting away from a scene when it ends directly to a band playing? Aka Madness Gli Occhi Della Luna 1971 style?

This is all too specific of a question about something too vague of a project for me to say if it is a good idea or not, you need to see if it fits your work or not.

I insist that you should try to have a general summary of what the film is going to be about and then you'll see for yourself what makes sense to include in the film and what doesn't.

Start by setting a runtime, let's say 2 hours so that you have more to work with than a 90 minute feature but it doesn't drag like many 3 hours features do (some don't, but it takes experience and a truly special mind to do it).

Then make a time table based on that, divide it on segments. You can make for example 3 or 4 acts as a first approximation. That leaves you with 30-40 minute acts, of course you can shrink one to expand the others as you see fit. Then divide those acts in, say, 10 minute long parts and see what you're going to do with those, what is going to happen in each of those. Put the key turning points and then build around them.

Try to write a short story without worrying too much about the literary quality but just what the plot is going to be so you can see what the turning points are. Then proceed with the process described above.

>And also basing my films partially off some of the worse giallo films is more so I can get some good or just missused stuff from them to make actually good, because when else are they going to appear again?

That could be a good idea, but as I was saying above I think you're putting the cart before the horse. Build a skeleton and then flesh it out. You can always change things during production. Shooting chronologically is a great way to afford you some extra flexibility but it can increase the costs by making you return to locations. Planning is key in filmmaking, specially if you have a modest budget.

After you have a general plot you can add the things you want without making everything disjointed.

You're the only one who truly knows what you want your film to be, but right now what you have is a torrent of ideas, you're brainstorming. You need to try to put some order to that to be able to do something with it. Many ideas aren't good or bad on their own, but good or bad in a certain context. Right now, we have very little context to work with.

It's not so much the age of the camera as it is the system it uses. 2-perf gives that Italian look, it's a system designed to save on film stock and to use cheaper (spherical) lenses.

The guys doing The Archivist are doing exactly that, albeit taking it one step further and using the same cameras as the ones from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Just like L'étrange couleur des larmes de ton corps (2013), I'm not willing to give it a watch. They insulted the viewers, they insulted giallo and they insulted the taxpayers financing their project once. They had a budget nearing a million and did a completely subpar product with it. I've seen million dollar productions that are excellent (Beyond the Black Rainbow being one of them, it doesn't look cheap at all).

They have nothing to say, they have no idea of how to create tension, suspense or mystery and they try to compensate by aping giallo visuals. In short, they're hacks. Their use of Stelvio Cipriani's music in the garbage they created is a slap on his face.

I can't talk about that particular film, but it's more about the role music plays in the film. I'm a bit biased about this film because I feel really close to the director's body of work and it's not giallo (even if the director loves giallo and Italian cinema to a fault and his aesthetic is greatly inspired by it) but I think Only God Forgives is a great example of using music as part of the storytelling. One of the main characters always performs at a karaoke club after his bloody acts, as a way to externalize. And it works great, it's very powerful. Of course, in the context of the movie (Thailand) it makes sense unlike if it were in the States for example. Karaoke bars in Thailand are a huge thing for men. Some double as brothels but some don't even have women working in them an the clientele is nearly 100% male. There's a devotion to karaoke there that's amazing. Guys go there to unwind after work, and work for Chang, work involves dealing with criminals in bloody ways that range from amputations to executions.

Also the movie triggered a lot of trannies which I found hilarious but that's another matter entirely.

Another example would be the way Lynch uses the band scenes in Twin Peaks. Music plays a huge role but to call Twin Peaks a musical would be asinine.

TL;DR: music-driven scenes can work, but make sure they are "earned" and not just an affectation, and make sure you don't overdo it.

What about Murder By Music 1969? That movie basically is another good example of music being used as one of the main parts of it's plot, though instead of being used in conjunction with other stuff, it's used on it's own as a sort of suicide switch for people you see?

>>2088446

Again, that's one I didn't see.

But there's Fulci's Sette note in nero (Seven notes in black) where the music plays a key role.

Like everything else, I believe you should make a general outline for the movie to see if it fits. I think a whiteboard would be a great investment for you, it's a fantastic way to order one's ideas.

Also as another note, These two giallo films so far are only available in this length via amazon, And need you to pay money to watch them uncut, Know anybody who could rip them from there? Aka "The Hyena of London" 1964 and "The Tormentor" 1973 aka "Death Carries a Cane" 1973, Because both are the longest versions I can find online, and in english no less, Any help?

Ripping from amazon is an artform lol.

I've been wanting to see The Black Gloves (not giallo, just Lovecraftian horror) and I can't because the distributors pulled it from Amazon so the only way is to buy a physical copy. Fuck that honestly.

Also what's with the name Ketty in giallo? lol

No, not that one. Remember I always use the original title. It's The Black Gloves (2017) starring Macarena Gomez aka Best Emma. The one that shows up first if you search The Black Gloves on any major engine. It's part of Scottish director Lawrie Brewster's Owlman trilogy.

You tagged The Black Gloves as giallo on IMDb? Why the hell would you do that? I even explicitly stated it's not a giallo when I mentioned it in this very thread. It is lovecraftian horror and it's noir (that's where the black glove imagery comes from) but nothing about it has anything to do with giallo at all. By tagging it as giallo you devalue the term. It's even worse than tagging some poliziottesco as giallo just because it has murders in it, because at least poliziotteschi are Italian and there were some giallo/poliziottesco crossovers. The only reason I mentioned the film is that we were talking about films we've had trouble watching on Prime Video.

>Japanese company

Are you Japanese/do you live in Japan? Because unless that's the case I wouldn't advice doing that. It's only adding expenses to the whole thing. In a way movies are like countries: no movie has been made great because of how much money it had, but many have perished for not having enough.

Before you go to any company to pitch your project make sure it can be taken seriously, or you'll only be sabotaging yourself. That means having a rough draft of the screenplay at the very least. Anything less and you end up as a guy to ignore in their book.

'm wondering if anyone could figure out a film from a rough description of a scene I saw. I don't think it was giallo, but I do believe it was from the 70's and possibly foreign.

A priest summons some female spirit, possibly a demon, and she is slowly wandering around the room. I think it was in a church. The priest, a young man, is frantically trying finish scrawling a magic circle around himself. It seems like the female sprit may have become aware of his presence and begins moving towards him. He finishes the circle just before she reaches him and she smacks into an invisible wall. The priest starts repeating some words, can't remember if its latin, verses or some incantation. The spirt is frantically circling the priest, feeling with her hands at the invisible barrier as if she is determined to get to him. The camera is spinning around from inside the circle following her and cutting back and forth between her and the priest.

The project has been pitched my dude, thats not the important part. He was asking if Toei being involved in the production was a good idea, or some other japanese comp. in case you knew any. I guess they could ultimate reject but the case in point is that we're posting on buthanese chainmail markets, anything is possible

try to describe the man, describe the witch, describe the church. The more details you have the better.

Who knows when I'll find it but I remember a 90's/early 2000's scene where a grey winged demon chased an actor who looked either like Eddie Murphy or Hassan Johnson and cornered him into a water tower, one might be too famous to be in the role, the other might've not even been famous at that time. Could be a shitty 80's french movie, could be an episode of Buffy, my point is, the she-devil is in the details

I didn't recognize either actors, but I do remember the priest being blonde, with mid length haircut. The girl was painted like grey or blue.


 No.2092220

the actors aint that important, the best shot you got is identifying the camerawork and link it to a director/tv show, and to try and remember the context of what the priest was wearing/doing, try to sift thru the dirt

How long ago did you watch it? Did you watch it in Europe or America? Internet or coffee shop tv?

Was she wearing clothing? Was the priest panicking or calm?

I watched it maybe a year ago, I saw it one of the million "occult in satani hollywood" videos on youtube. I think it was aj ay dyer vid, I'm searching now, but he has released so much stuff in the same subject since so it's hard to determine if I'm even remembering correctly.

The most memorable thing about the camerawork was the spinning and pov shots.

>>2092222

I believe the she was wearing a white dress. The priest panicking but prepared. I didn't see what led up to or the summoning itself, just that the female spirit and the priest react in what I'd describe as "oh shit it worked - I better put up the magic circle barrier quick!"

That's a relief, I hadn't noticed it was tagged as "giallo-esque" and thought you had done it. Turns out someone did it at least a year ago according to the Wayback Machine.

>Now more than one place than imdb lists this film under the Giallo catagory is what I meant

Now you're just being pedantic lol. I mean an added expense to the project. i.e. the film.

But still, Since italian wiki considers it a giallo, Cruel Jaws and "The Desert Salamander" are giallo films, Though I can see more by how the desert salamnder is one, Then there is one I am unable to tag because no entry, aka "Cold Blooded Murderer" 1967 by the guy who made "Crimes of the Black Cat" 1972 and Delitti 1984
