Arianna (Margaret Grace) lives a miserable little life: She works in a dead end job at a beauty salon where she has to take abuse from customers and colleagues alike all the time, while her boss (Shelley Nixon) accuses her of stealing, she is not only shy but also has next to no social life, and the only friend she's having is a transvestite (Kyle Greer) who constantly takes her to wild clubs she feels uncomfortable at, while at her house, the maintenance guy (Antonio Brunetti) is a bit too eager to get into her panties ... and sadly enough, that's the closest to a sex life she's having.

Then she dials a women-on-women phonesex line - and with the girl she's hooked up with, Jackie (Jill Oliver), her life changes, as Jackie actually seems to like her, calls her back, after a while suggests to meet, and the two women actually end up having sex. And Jackie also encourages Arianna to take her life into her own hands ... and that might not be a good thing, because before long, people who have wronged Arianna in one way or another die like flies from unnatural causes (yes, it's murder), and Arianna even becomes one of the suspects.

She hasn't done it of course ... or has she, because at times she wakes up in the strangest of places, usually with a human tooth in her hand ... and what about Jackie, is she real even? Oh, and then there's Arianna's brother Danny (Derek Ryan Brummet), who obviously wants his violent revenge on her - buf for what, and why has she assumed a new name?

 

As the title might suggest, Yellow pays hommage to the Italian giallo, with its labyrinthine serialkiller story, many unlikely plottwists, its psychological underpinnings, its outbursts of violence, and its sexy bits. But that said, Yellow works not so much as an hommage as it does as a piece of delightful genre weirdness, because despite all of the references it does find its own unique style and feel, despite its very unlikely story, the film does make sense within its own reality (even if its hard to make sense of it) - and add to this a few very compelling performances, and you've got yourself a pretty good and pretty weird piece of genre cinema (and whether or not you want to call it an actual giallo or even care is up to you).

Recommended, actually!
