John Saxon was a longstanding veteran of screen and TV, with more than 200 credits to his name, perhaps most prominent in the horror community for his role as Nancy's mother in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. Daria Nicolodi may not be a household name in the USA, but as a frequent collaborator and lover of Dario Argento, she had a role in some of his most notorious Italian horror and giallo pics, including a star turn in Deep Red and as the co-writer of Suspiria.
Oh boy, did this movie divide us. One loved it, one hated it. Listen for the good, bad and ugly, and lots of angry birds.
Bay Of Blood
We're both happy to discuss this Mario Bava giallo flick, which turned out to be the granddaddy of the slasher genre that came to prominence a decade later in the 80's. Yes, the plot is convoluted. But at least there IS a plot. Listen as we attempt to unravel it.
The Bird With the Crystal Plumage
This directorial debut by horror legend Dario Argento also happens to be both his first and perhaps most accessible feature film - so popular in Italy that it played at a single theater in Milan for several years.
We Are Still Here
We were definitely split on this unique throwback to those old Italian giallo horrors of the 70's. Shout out to Todd's main man, Lucio Fulci!
