Giallo means yellow, but the color red is more closely associated with this distinctly Italian genre of horror film, forged by stylized Italian filmmakers like Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Sergio Martino, Pupi Avati and many more.

As Taste of Cinema notes:

Giallo movies are remembered by their beautiful female leads such as Edwige Fench, Barbara Bach, Daria Nicolodi, Barbara Bouchet, Suzy Kendall, Ida Galli and Anita Strindberg. Movies with annoying shocking music, disguised and masked murderers, sharp knives and sex maniacs in the shadows. Giallo movies came into existence in the 1960s, bloomed in the 1970s and declined in the 1980s. Yet its influence can be seen in today’s cinema; while Wes Craven, John Carpenter and Eli Roth kept it alive in the US, Dario Argento and Pupi Avati continued making giallo movies till today... 

As for Sonno Profondo (Deep Sleep) it has to do with a murderer who is traumatized by childhood memories -- after committing an especially heinous murder, he goes home and finds an envelope under his door filled with photographs of the murder.

The hunter quickly learns he's now the prey. But who is onto him? This is shot in a weird kind of POV style that really creates a horrific atomsphere for the disturbing events taking place. Reminds me of the technique used in the filming of the Maniac remake.

Filmed in the style of Italian giallo films, Sonno Profondo includes English subtitles
Starring:Luciano Onetti, Daiana García

Killing Jimmy Hoffa is next on my list. Gangster Report's Scott Burnstein stars in this insightful documentary about the "missing" former Teamster's boss, as does acclaimed Philadelphia-based crime writer George Anastasia, with Al Profit directing.


Profit also directed, as you'll see, The Frank Matthews Story, about the drug dealer who was "richer than Frank Lucas" and "more powerful than the Mafia." The biggest drug dealer in America, he jumped bail in 1973 and disappeared with $15 million. He has never been seen again. Nearly four decades later, the fate of Frank Matthews remains a complete mystery.
 

What are the benefits of Amazon Prime?

Well, in the case of Prime Video, you'd be able to watch instantly any one of these mob-related documentaries or films -- for free.... plus tens of thousands of other films, including cool obscure horror flicks.
