Gli incubi di Dario Argento is a TV series created and directed by Dario Argento as part of Giallo Argento, a segment of RAI TV show Giallo by Enzo Tortora.[1][2]

It consists of nine episodes shot in 35 mm, each one having a duration of about 3 minutes.[3] Among various episodes, Nostalgia Punk has emerged following the criticism raised by the audience after it was broadcast, due to the violent scenes, and led the RAI management to issue a public reprimand to Argento and the show.[4] The series was screened in several festivals, including at the 2014 Locarno Film Festival.[5]
