THE DIA DOUBLE FEATURE IS BACK!

This week, Bill and I are reopening the DIA balcony and showing two giallo classics by two of the best directors ever to get our 2023 season started just right. It all starts at 8 PM EST on the Groovy Doom Facebook and YouTube pages.

Up first — Lucio Fulci’s Sette note in nero AKA The Psychic. You can watch it on YouTube.

If you haven’t watched the show, what we do is discuss each movie, show the ad campaign and then share a drink recipe. Here’s the cocktail for the first film:

Seven Sweet Notes In Black Cola

  • 2 oz. J&B (what else?)
  • 6 oz. cola
  • 4 dashes, Angostura Orange bitters
  • Orange wedge
  1. Pour the ice in a tall glass, then top with J&B.
  2. Add cola and bitters, then squeeze in your orange wedge. Have a flash back or a flash forward with your first taste.

Our second movie is Dario Argento’s 4 mosche di velluto grigio or Four Flies On Grey Velvet which you can find on YouTube.

Here’s the drink for the second movie.

Giallo Plot Twist

  • 1.5 oz. J&B
  • 5 oz. ginger ale
  • 4 dashes, Angostura bitters
  • Lime wedge
  1. Pour the ice in a tall glass, then top with J&B, just like the first one, but maybe wear black gloves this time.
  2. Add ginger ale and bitters, then squeeze in your lime wedge. We’re keeping the drinks simple this week and the movies complicated.
