Now that's what I call a Cover

Thanks to the le-giallo Blog for alerting me to these releases from neo Publishing. The Blog has some tasty stills and interesting additions to the Giallo umbrella, I will have to take some time to try and read the rest of the reviews (my french not being so fantastique).

I felt I should add these in reference to one of my earlier posts because these covers combine style with the yellow background beautifully. The DVDs are subtitled in French, I'm supposing they are Italian language and not with English dubbing - oh darn it, I must get on an Italian course.

Checked out the trailer for Amer by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani. Love the poster, love the look, though I thought the trailer might be a little staid, I'm so wary of trailers these days. Looking at this though I'm hoping it could be a bit of Alain Robbe-Grillet meets Giallo, I hope so.

It's French/Belgian, I don't know many Belgian films apart from: "Daughters of Darkness", now if it was as stylish and as sinister as this film we are cooking.

Revival05 on IMDB says that the Giallo connection is not really justified although the motifs are all there, but the rest of the review means I will have to see it.... hmmm 'insanely imaginative imagery".
