The Do-It-Yourself Giallo Generator!

giallo_title

I’ve been on a super Giallo kick lately, inspired by Christian’s fantastico retrospective series Spaghetti Slashers. Hitting up films to collect, each more deliriously titled then the last, I hit the logical conclusion when I stumbled on this old fave site, where one click of your mouse creates a fake Giallo title and synopsis. Here’s what I got:

A Bloodstained White Rose in a Silver Casket

Directed by
Stefano Stefani

An attractive girl is murdered with a hatchet in a train station. A musician inadvertently picks up the one piece of evidence that will solve the the killing. When another person is found murdered, he discovers the maniac’s true identity, but is mistakenly gunned down by the police before he can reveal it.
