Description by OLDIES.com:
Italian Horror. covers Italian horror films released between 1979 and 1994. This period has attracted relatively little serious study, with the exception of the works of certain high-profile directors - Dario Argento, Lucio Fluci and Ruggero Deodato. More often than not, the 1980s are passed over as a time when Italian horror was bogged down in derivative sequels or toothless made-for-television efforts, before fizzling out in the early 1990s.
ITALIAN HORRORS covers Italian horror films released between 1979 and 1994. Why those years? Well, primarily for convenience. They mark the release dates of Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE, the film that instigated the last great wave of Italian horror, and Michele Soavi's DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE, the last great Italian horror film. After the release of Soavi's film, relatively few new Italian horror movies were made; the trend had run its course, and such films were no longer seen as commercially viable. The aim of this work is to guide the unfamiliar viewer to the best films of the period, while hopefully steering him or her away from the dross.
