Italian screenwriter and director, best known for splattery [[{{Giallo}} gialli]] and [[HorrorTropes horror]] films (though he also made {{western}}s and comedies). His films seldom pass up an excuse for gore, and the effects are consistently over-the-top sometimes horrifyingly convincing, sometimes [[SpecialEffectFailure amusingly fake]], but always extreme. His films are driven by theme and visual style rather than coherent plot; they tend to be [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism deeply pessimistic]], and propelled toward nihilistic {{Downer Ending}}s.
