The old saying 'they don't make them like they used to' applies to many spheres of life but there are few areas where it applies more than to the world of Italian genre film. One of the world's most fertile film communities in the 1970s and 1980s, the Italian genre scene has attracted a loyal following around the globe, a following that no doubt asks on a regular basis whatever happened to all these great filmmakers.
Well, most of them are still around and they're being brought together for a new anthology project titled The Book. Included in the roster: Lamberto Bava, Antonio Bido, Enzo Castellari, Luigi Cozzi, Alberto di Martino, Ruggero Deodato, Aldo Lado, Umberto Lenzi, Edoardo Margheriti, Sergio Martino, Sergio Stivaletti and Tonino Valerii.
