Whether it’s on the television, in the newspapers, magazines, or on the Internet: violence is everywhere. Its current presence seems imminent every time ISIS releases another execution video on YouTube or when CNN reports on Boko Haram in Nigeria. Even local violence cannot be avoided considering the amount of kidnappings, school shootings, cases of rape, discrimination, racism and murders occur. Examples are the recent murder on the Irish Karen Buckley; the shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, US followed by the Ferguson protests regarding the unfair treatment of African-Americans by local police officers; the ongoing war on the Gaza strip; the 2010 student protests in London that turned into riots, etc. Author keywords: Italian cinema, Italian cinema history, Dario Argento, Italian directors
