The Girl Who Knew Too Much (REVIEW)

Black gloves, black raincoat, beautiful but unstable women, more red herrings than a Finnish wedding reception, metaphorical animal titles, Haute Couture, J&B whisky, and a slightly naive protagonist caught in a killer’s path. If this is ringing a bell then chances are you have seen at least one giallo in your lifetime. ‘Giallo’ is of course, the generic term given to a spate of hundreds of violent whodunit films to come out of Italy between 1963 and present day (though the heyday was the 60’s and 70’s).

"Imago Mortis" Trailer

Produced by the snappy individuals responsible for both "The Orphange" and "Pan's Labyrinth," Stefano Bessoni's upcoming horror/thriller "Imago Mortis" is shaping up to be the sort of picture I'd like to see. What's more, it's scripted by one of the fine fellows behind Jaume Balaguero's outstanding "[Rec]," which is, of course, grossly superior to its US counterpart. Unfortunately, the trailer currently making the rounds for "Imago Mortis" isn't in English, but the imagery alone is enough to get the blood pumping.

Here's the synopsis from IMDb:

"Door Into Silence" Comes To Region 1

Celebrated horror director Lucio Fulci's final production, the less-than-stellar "Door Into Silence," will make its Region 1 debut on June 30th courtesy of Severin Films, the edgy genre-friendly distributor responsible for giving Vidal Raski's ultra bizarre cult favorite "The Sinful Dwarf" a much-needed home on DVD. Your desire to purchase this admittedly dodgy motion picture will depend greatly upon your tolerance for John Savage, car chases involving funeral hearses, and half-baked psychological terror. In other words, it's probably better suited to Fulci completists than anyone else.

Fulci Lives!

THE BEYOND

It seems that, since just about everyone in the world of horror is so well aware of "The Beyond", and, even more appropriately for me, everyone in the world of horror has already written their own opinions about it, that to add mine just seems, well, totally redundant. You might as well title this “Not Another 'The Beyond' Review”.
