    I can certainly hope!

      I would personally like a source book on some Giallo type movies. Lets do some Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci!

        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.

          Not exactly Giallo, but I can say that Mario Bava's Black Sunday (in Italy that's titled "The Mask of the Devil", it got really butchered in other countries) pops up in my mind quite often when it comes to TCFBtG!

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

            The cover treatment for a giallo horror game could be amazing.

              Over-the-top title, out of place yet stylish font, vivid contrasting colors, knives, eyes, and screaming people?

              Yeah, I can see it. Amazing indeed!

                I just assumed it'd be a pair of gloves coming for a young woman.

                  I would say so. They did kinda inspire the American Slasher films of the late 70s to 80s. Plus its slightly different as Giallo films are not always about supernatural elements. So I am all for a Giallo sourcebook. lets hop abroad the Italian psychological horror film genre express!

                  Oh god what would be the title? They Came From Across the Ocean/ They Came From the Dark?

                      Honestly, one of the antagonists for such a supplement has to be a pair of murderous floating leather gloves.

                        I used a Argento meets A Nightmare on Elm Street poster homage for one of my books. Because this sort of book is my jam.

                            Hmm. Classic Universal of the 30s (and part of the 40s and 50s). Italian Giallo.

                            I'd suggest classic British horror, but I suspect that the main game will already be delving into that quite a bit. Maybe Mexican horror films. Or J-Horror.

                              J-Horror would be good. Its very different from western horror and would lend itself to a film horror type game. I haven't seen to much mexican horror, maybe some badly dubbed vampire films from the 60s so I can't really comment on those.

                                I'll be honest, I would personally help finance a Beyond the Grave sourcebook about Mexico and Mexican horror just to have rules for masked wrestlers fighting monsters, because I am that kind of dork.

                                El Santo vs. Blackula would be awesome. Search your feelings; You know it to be true.


                                (It does occur to me that some sort of Beyond the Grave Companion or World Guide that looked at 60s and 70s horror trends/genres/film cultures around the globe and how to do them in BtG would be really cool. Chapters for the Italy, Mexico, the UK, Japan, Hong Kong/Taiwan, and so forth. Maybe also some of the regional differences for places like New England, New Orleans, Toronto and the like. And perhaps a look at some of the specifics of Blaxsploitation horror.)
