It's hard. Knowing that I'm not gonna allow myself to see a giallo until late May is making me want to see them even more. Whole wanting-what-I-can't-have thing. Doesn't help matters that a package came yesterday with two that I ordered.
Almost rented Basic Instinct to take the edge off. I've never seen it all the way, but I've been told it's close to an American giallo. I figured it would still be cheating. Besides, Basic Instinct is one of those movies you don't actually rent from the store. Like Brokeback Mountain or Gigli. You Netflix that shit.
Also almost rented Fulci's Zombi 2. Figured it'd be Italian enough, but non-giallo. Got Drag Me To Hell instead. I wanted to see how accurately it portrayed Sears (I worked there for four years, so I believe I am fully certified to make that joke).
The only thing getting me by right now is my copy of Blood and Black Lace by Adrian Luther Smith. I just wish I had a copy for every room in the house.
Okay. Going to bed.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
