A portion of a film that is reminiscent of the Italian genre of film and literature where mysterious elements combine with horror, supernatural or crime fiction components, and linked to the movies of Dario Argento in the late 60s and 1970s. Giallo literally translates as yellow and refers to a series of pulp paperback mystery novels that were popular in post-fascist Italy, and which had yellow covers. This term perplexed Simon on the 15th July 2016 show when Mark used it when talking about a review of Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon. None of this is funny, but it is true.
