Italian horror. I am unfamiliar with any Italian horror directors but I'm certain they exist. Who are they? What have they made?
The big Italian horror genre is the "giallo", which are basically stylish, colorful (literally) thrillers. Dario Argento is one of the leading filmmakers in the genre, with movies such as Suspiria and Bird with the Crystal Plumage. There's also Lucio Fulci, best known for his unofficial Night of the Living Dead sequel, the gorefest "Zombi 2" (notable for, among other things, a scene where a zombie fights a shark), and Mario Bava, who made a bunch of well-done horror/thrillers in his day (of which I've only seen "Blood and Black Lace", which was pretty good).
