It's a testament to the horror genre that it can yield so many documentaries on its various strains, divisions, and sub-genres, and here's a new one that looks pretty darn solid! The title is Hanging Shadows, and the focus here is on Italian horror, more specifically the "giallo" style of Italian horror. Already I'm interested, but things get even more convenient: You can watch the flick right now (for a few bucks) without even moving! (OK, you'll probably have to move your hand.)

We've included an early clip from the film after the jump, but here's a little press release information: "This documentary presents an informative historical overview of the giallo genre, exploring its genesis and chronicling the films, directors, and personalities that made up its golden age. Featuring interviews with Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava (director and son of Maria Bava), Antonella Fulci (daughter of director Lucio Fulci), Franco Ferrini (co-writer of Sergio Leone's Once upon a time in America and numerous Argento films), Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust), Giannetto De Rossi (make-up artist on Fulci's films), and many others. Hanging Shadows is a fascinating study of a group of films and filmmakers that redefined the horror genre and forever changed the way we think of horror films."

Hanging Shadows is available on Amazon VOD at this very moment. Here's proof.
