    Yeah, I can see it. Amazing indeed!
    I just assumed it'd be a pair of gloves coming for a young woman.

    But yes, a proper Giallo supplement would be cool, from Deep Red to Suspiria and The Beyond.

    I'm a big fan of Giallo and have run a couple of Beyond the Grave! sessions in the Italian exploitation style. Would it warrant a sourcebook? Hmm. I'll think on it.

    I can certainly hope!

    I mean I think if everyone is fine with it and understands its just a game then fighting psychopathic 10 year olds could be fun in a more campy not super duper serious game. though it would have to be agreed upon by the whole group.

    Either they're really demons in disguise (which transform into monsters so the PCs can kill them without murdering children) or they're possessed or something. But yeah, your game requiring the PCs to kill children probably wouldn't be good.

    Or they have to catch the kids without killing them or something.

    That would be a good advisoraly campaign. kinda like Dead by Daylight or what ever. have one player be the slasher and the others try to figure it out.

    They Came From Maine More Often Than Not!

    Jokes aside, it's a great source of inspiration.

    That's true, but then again directors like Tobe Hooper and John Carpenter also went on to direct Stephen King adaptations. The King's boom and the golden age of slasher movies happened roughly at same time and helped each other thrive. I'd say there's enough correlation to have fun with it, if you want

    (And I suspect They Came From Beyond the Grave! offers all the tools to do so, especially once From Murder Lake! happens)
