    This week the AV Club is doing a series of giallo reviews. http://www.avclub.com/features/watch-this/
    Now, I'm sure many of you here will be pissed about them (the reviews point out some of the absurdities, and were none too kind in their opinion of Lucio Fulci), but I kind of like seeing reviews of this kind. They're not hardcore fans like most of us (and lets face it, we can be way too forgiving of a lot of things like plot holes and bad acting in giallo or horror films in general), but they're not exactly mainstream either. It's sort of something in between.

    Either way, I like them paying tribute to the genre.

    Thanks for highlighting, Paff.

    Today, it's Stage Fright (1987).

    I really like the AV Club's reviews, even if I occasionally disagree with them. I read the books, games, comics, TV, and film reviews there on a daily basis.
