If you’re a fan of Italian horror movies—specifically, the gory, titillating subgenre known as giallo—and you’re anywhere near Los Angeles in the next few weeks, you won’t want to miss a group art show titled “My Blood Runs Yellow: A Tribute to Giallos.”

Co-curated by Sloan Fine Art gallery owner/director Alix Sloan and film journalist Drew Fitzpatrick, both giallo enthusiasts, the show brings together works by 13 different artists that take inspiration from the genre.

I am in LA, and love me some Bava and Argento (and a few others, to a lesser extent), but, alas, between the full time job and the grad school, I don’t think I'll be able to attend. :-(
