    Could be just a rumor but shocktillyoudrop.com says:
    Dunno,could be nice...-ish....perhaps?
    I just hope this won't be an Americanized Giallo (if true).

    Way too early to pass comment. All we know from that is that it'll be a giallo. I'm up for that.

    So is it literally being called 'Yellow' in Italy? It'll probably be about a killer who's mimicking a book's killings. They'll try to follow the book and figure out a way to trap him with it.

    It'll be GIALLO in Italian and YELLOW in English. It would make no sense to call it YELLOW in Italy.

    Liking calling something Suspiria or Tenebre in America? It's no uncommon to use other language's title especially if it's one word. I also think Italians know enough English to know what "yellow" means.

    It's probably a play on words, it makes more sense to call it 'Giallo' even in America than just 'Yellow' because the genre is known more by the word itself than by the color connotation. It's almost like calling something Grindhouse, in and of itself modern audiences probably won't get it anyways even in Italy.

    Well the term YELLOW has no status and historical value, well GIALLO, in the genre, surely does.

    You've done surveys? I could be wrong, but in my experience working at an international training center many Europeans have a basic enough understanding of English. Perhaps "yellow" wouldn't be on the tip of their tongue but I think more Italians know "yellow" than Americans know "giallo."

    I have travelled throughout all Italy. Done that for years, I love the country, even more than mine.
    You name it, I've probably been there. Big cities, small villages, big islands full of tourists, small ones... Even the french know more english than italians, and that's saying alot! :D Greece is different, Germany, Belgium and Holland too. There, most people know a bit more than basic english.
    But really, most Italians don't know enough English to know what "yellow" means - most italians don't know a word of english. :)
