If you’re a fan of classic Italian giallo cinema then, boy, do we have a treat for you. We have been sent the teaser trailer for Davide Melini’s (The Sweet Hand of the White Rose) giallo tribute, Deep Shock; the title combines two of the greatest giallo features, Dario Argento’s Deep Red and Mario Bava’s Shock.
The trailer bursts with expected eroticism, mystery, slasher violence and a heap of iconic imagery typically associated with giallos, so we can’t wait to see what delights the full-length film offers.
