Fantasm Presents #7: A Tribute To Italian Cinema
This issue is loaded to the gills! We love Italian Cinema and we know you do too. This issue is a love letter to the country, filmmakers and films that have given us so much joy and terror for many years. From the brilliant and celebrated Suspiria to the lesser known The Four the Apocalypse, the Italian cinematic landscape is vast and varied and let's be honest, gleefully weird. We've crafted a book that you can appreciate no matter your knowledge of these films and filmmakers. There is simply no way to thoroughly cover it all or even briefly touch on it all for that matter, but we've done our best to create a sweeping portrait of the the Italian filmmscape that we adore!
A Legacy in Blood and Broken Glass: A deep dive into the world of Dario Argento, by author of the brilliant book, The Argento Syndrome, Derek Bothello. Something Forbidden: A look at Joe D'Amato's Emanuelle films featuring the exquisite Laura Gemser, by bestselling author, Ed Kurtz. Eat Thy Neighbor: The Italian cannibal film cycle is torn apart and devoured by Brian Steward as we look at the history of this brutal subgenre, from its tooth-cutting origins to its blood-soaked demise.
Frantic Zooms into Frightened Eyes: Sergio Salvati's Lucio Fulci Filmography is dissected as Bradley Steele Harding focuses the lens on this brilliant cinematographer.
Edwige Fenech Uncovered: She has worked with directors like Mario Bava, Sergio Martino, Lucio Fulci, Umberto Lenzi and Ruggero Deodato on classics like All the Colors of the Dark, Five Dolls for an August Moon and Strip Nude for your Killer. Brian Steward takes us on a journey through the beautiful and brilliant actor and producer's impressively colorful career.
Coffins, Candles and Cemeteries: Celebrated author Ed Kurtz takes a long ride into the sunset with the Spaghetti Western. It can be argued that the Italians made better films about the American frontier than the Americans themselves. Sergio Martino talks with us about his American releases and remembers his time before the fall of the exploitation film.
The Sounds of Italy: A primer featuring some of the less obvious soundtracks that we think your ears deserve.
Selected film examinations include And God Said to Cain, Deported Women of the SS Special Section and A Bay of Blood. All this and many more surprises!
