April 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Download. I noticed that you recently made an edit to The Awful Dr. Orloff that seemed to be a test. Your test worked! If you want more practice editing, the sandbox is the best place to do so. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, -download ׀ talk 20:34, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Re: "Vandalism"[edit]

The vast majority of English speaking giallo fans are not going to be looking up these films under their Italian names. I can see titling the articles under their Italian names, since the films were originally in Italian. But by not listing them on the giallo page under the English titles for which the readers are searching for them would seriously hinder their search, since they have no idea what the film is called in Italian! Then when you finally direct them to the Italian-titled article, you won't even allow the english aka title to be prominently shown; you force them to read all the way to end of the article to reveal the English titles for these films, so most readers have given up by then. These giallos made way more money under their English titles than they ever did in Italy, to be sure, so they are better known by more English fans than Italian fans. It is elitist to list the films under their unknown (to most) Italian names without writing the English title prominently at the beginning of the article where the reader can see it.

Don't you dare accuse me of vandalism. I've laboured for quite some time now to keep article links pointing in the right place so that readers can actually make use of this website, rather than it simply pandering to your own prejudices. A link to an articles actual title is the way to do things—needlessly forcing redirects or removing links entirely only hinders the browsing of this site and that is what is vandalism. I suggest you take some time to appraise yourself of why wikilinks actually exist before slinging baseless accusations again. GRAPPLE X 21:16, 26 June 2013 (UTC)


"After a while I was fed up with comedies and would not do any more. So I did not work for a year, until, with some friends, I produced a western which I feel belongs in the fantastique, Tepepa. It was very different from the other Italian westerns one could see then: both soft-spoken and extremely violent. The confrontation of two brothers in an unreal climate. Franco Nero, who had not yet been the star of Django, played the first part."

In his review Fulci almost certainly refers to Massacre Time, a western starred by Franco Nero that he directed in 1966, a film that marked the end of his comedy-period and that actually has in its plot a "confrontation of two brothers in an unreal climate". Tepepa has a completely different plot, a different cast, it was filmed several years after Django and several years after he had already experienced in a number of other genre films. --Cavarrone 19:43, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Fulci actually mentions Tepepa by name in the interview. Also he produced Tepepa but he directed Massacre Time. In the interview, he refers to "producing" a western, not directing it. So you are trying to contradict Fulci's own comments now?
Sure, I am "trying to contradict Fulci's own comments" as they are patiently inaccurate, as I demonstrated above. Are you trying to argue that Tepepa was filmed before Django (1966 or before), starred by Franco Nero and that has as plot involving a confrontation between two brothers, just because Fulci said that? Have you never seen Tepepa? Cavarrone 21:39, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Actually no
