If you're like me, and you miss the heyday of the Italian giallo film, then this new trailer for Bruno Forzani and Helene Cattet's Amer should have you as giddy as a razor-wielding maniac who just scored his very first pair of black leather gloves. It's been far too long since we've been treated to a stylish and sexy foreign thriller filled with lurid lighting, but if this new clip is any indication, the giallo drought may be ending--at least temporarily.

Our friends at Twitch scored this new exclusive clip. It's only 48 seconds long (meaning it left me wanting more...), but what's there is certainly something that should give fans flashbacks to the days when filmmakers like Argento, Sergio Martino, and Mario Bava where churning out one beautifully stylized thriller after another. Add in the fantastic poster art (another throwback to a bygone era that I look back on with great nostalgia) and it's easy to see why Amer is one of the films I'm eagerly anticipating in 2010. If it had been made in Italy, you could almost convince me it was a movie that sat in some film vault for the past three decades...

The oddly worded description (which you can find alongside the trailer after the jump) makes me wonder if this is going to be a full-fledged giallo film or an art film with Italian thriller inspirations, but until we learn otherwise, I'm going to keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.
