Italian horror films are better known outside of Italy. From Bava to Fulci, the great Italian masters of this genre have emulators and devoted fans all across the globe. In Italy, Italian horror films have been largely confined to critical rediscovery over the past 15-20 years. However, a new generation of filmmakers has been exploring the horror genre, despite the many difficulties of an ever-shrinking market dominated by American blockbuster producers. These films should be seen through the lens of experimentation, like the rise of new forces in a challenging field both from the production and aesthetic standpoint.
