    Vinegar Syndrome's Forgotten Gialli

    VS announced the first Forgotten Gialli box set (due out in April)
    We are thrilled to finally announce our first (of several) collections of rare Italian and Spanish gialli. Forgotten Gialli: Volume 1 will feature three never available in the US titles and will be released in April. Pre-orders will be available soon.

    Javier Aguirre's Euro-sleaze-star-studded adaptation of And Then There Were None, THE KILLER IS ONE OF 13, León Klimovsky's giallo/proto-slasher hybrid, TRAUMA, and Helia Colombo's supremely weird THE POLICE ARE BLUNDERING IN THE DARK.

    All three of these nearly impossible to see films will be presented in brand new, 2K restorations from their original negatives.

    I was reading about this earlier. Great to have the titles announced. I've seen THE POLICE ARE BLUNDERING IN THE DARK, some sleazy murders and a very off-kilter atmosphere make this worth seeing. It's no lost classic but it sort of has a cut-rate Polselli vibe. THE KILLER IS ONE OF THIRTEEN is slow to get going but does finally have some fairly brutal killings. Haven't seen Klimovsky's TRAUMA. The lone review at IMDb says it's his sleaziest horror film.

    I certainly never expected to see any of these get this kind of loving care. I'll be buying this for sure, gotta support VS for releasing these.

    There are actually a few reviews, I missed the others first pass.

    geez, best news ever! sure they are not the best gialli ever (don't know, haven't seen them yet) but they have tits, blood and black gloves + a boxset featuring 3 spanish gialli never before in HD?!
    c'mon ... every r!s!p! member should at least buy 2 copies!

    ^^This will be the first time in years I'll pre-order instead on stocking up during their big sales. Keep the Gialli coming VS.

    Watched TRAUMA tonight, it's pretty tough sledding to be honest. Slow as hell and completely bland and unlikable characters. On the plus side the murders are fairly gory (the f/x are pretty budget-starved though). I really wonder if Klimovsky directed this, it doesn't have the look or feel of any of his other films I've seen. On the plus side, the film looks awesome, really impressive restoration. And there's a truly strange looking Siamese cat in it.

    Anyone know why the specs etc for films on IMDB have now moved under the review?

    Humanoid of Flesh's review, whom I know, is to be trusted. I like the film a lot, too.
    Definitely getting this box, if only for this.


    "Keep My Grave Open".

    An accomplished writer arrives to a guesthouse near the lake in the middle of nowhere.Its owner is a young and obviously troubled woman.During the night a sexually active couple is slashed to death by a mysterious black-gloved killer.More savage murders follow.Who is behind them?"Trauma" by Leon Klimovsky reminded me a little bit S.F Brownrigg's underrated "Keep My Grave Open".All the killings via razor are vicious and bloody.There is plenty of sex and nudity-in fact "Trauma" is perhaps the sleaziest horror film made by Leon Klimovsky.The plot offers some genuine suspense and a bit of perversion and nasty misogyny.I enjoyed this rare and utterly forgotten slasher/giallo.8 razors out of 10.
