The “giallo”—a specifically Italian brand of lurid thriller—emerged in the 1960s and became a commercial force to be reckoned with throughout the 1970s. While not all of these films achieved the success and notoriety as the most popular efforts by the likes of Mario Bava, Dario Argento or Lucio Fulci, they nevertheless proved to be immensely popular—with latter-day entries emerging well into the 21st century. They also proved to be influential on films from across the globe; for instance, they helped to set the stage for the slasher movie boom of the late ’70s and early ’80s, and they would go on to inspire contemporary filmmakers looking to pay homage to their baroque excesses. “So Deadly, So Perverse: Volume 3” shines a light on some of these films, some of which are well-known for capturing the off-kilter vibe of these beloved cult classics, and some of which display an influence in more surprising ways. Covering titles produced everywhere from America and Great Britain to Turkey and Japan, this final volume in the “So Deadly, So Perverse” trilogy offers a final summation of the genre and its lasting cult popularity and appeal. In addition to in-depth coverage of an eclectic range of titles, there are also a number of deliciously sensational and exploitative images, many in full color.

RALPH BATES
A Biography

Christopher Gullo

6x9, 188 pages
Price $25 SALE PRICE $18

Written with the blessing of Bates’ wife Virginia and his two children, Ralph Bates: A Biography delves deep into the actor’s life from childhood and his beginning interest in theater at school, to his tenure at Hammer Film Productions as one of its rising stars, to his triumphs in television with lead roles in Poldark and Dear John. This biography features 165 photos, including many never-before-seen family photos. Besides his well-known turns as the dark and brooding villain, readers will also learn about his outside love of cricket and his desire to perform comedy, which came to fruition during his multiple tours with the production of Run for Your Wife! In addition to quotes from Bates from various interviews, over 70 original author-acquired contributions from family, friends and coworkers were gathered to give the most complete look at the life of a much missed actor, husband, father and friend to many. The author is donating all personal proceeds from sales of this book to the Ralph Bates Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, which was created to honor Bates, who passed away from the disease in 1991.
