ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK / TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO (1972)

Welcome to Giallo of the Month Club! On this "Black Friday" episode, Dianna is joined by licensed master social worker and therapist, Lauren Fiocco. Join us as we discuss Sergio Martino's ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK / TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO. Buio, meaning black, evil, or wicked in Italian, represents darkness. Black is a mysterious color that is typically associated with the unknown or the negative. The color is associated with fear, mystery, death, and rebellion. Black is required for all other colors to have depth and variation of hue. Authoritative and powerful, the color can evoke strong emotions and too much black can be overwhelming.
