Il cittadino si ribella - Carlo Antonelli, an engineer from Genoa, gets mugged and decides to take justice into his own hands. At first the muggers seem to get the upper hand, but then he's helped by Tommy, a young robber who takes his side. The Italian title sounds like vigilante poetry: IL CITTADINO SE RIBBELLA. From Enzo G. Castellari, who was so kind to pay us a visit as the main guest of the 2017 edition.

Dawn Breaks Behind the Eyes

Dawn breaks behind the Eyes

Dawn Breaks Behind the Eyes tells the story of a disruptive couple in a '60s gothic setting. Margot (Luisa Taraz) has inherited a castle, which is visited by her husband Dieter (played superbly by Frederik von Lüttichau). The first half skillfully delivers a psychodrama of this toxic relationship, amid the surreal castle where space and time seem to have their own rules. This summary does not even describe a small fraction of the sensation this film brings about: visual ecstasy, confusion and disorientation, but also a captivating experience you will not be able to recapitulate. A nightmarish fever dream shot on 35 mm by someone that has watched many giallos and euro-horrors.

headspace

5-year-old Alex Borden is handsome, charming, and intelligent. In fact, he may be too smart for his own good, as his life is swiftly becoming a living hell. Alex's nightmare begins when he meets Harry, a mysterious artist and chess-master. Alex becomes alarmed when his intellect mysteriously begins to grow, and so do the horrors that invade his nightmares--and soon his waking hours. Long-suppressed memories surface and Alex must face the terrors of his violent past, a vanished older brother, a father who abandoned both his sons, and a mother who was viciously murdered. The visions intensify and he starts getting intense headaches that ultimately cause him to black out. But it is only the beginning of Alex's calamity. Friends and neighbors are disappearing, and people are whispering rumors of a serial killer. Menaced from all sides by the forces of evil, Alex must overcome his past and contain his own deadly urges so he can hopefully discover what demons, both real and imagined, are stalking him. This film was released by BUT Filmcollection on dvd, and is shown on 35 mm, a festival copy in our celluloid collection. With Pollyanna McIntosh in a small role.

With the creative storytelling through guitar solos, memorable riffs, harsh vocals, devastating bass, and loud fast paced drums, Impure is born.The band consists of five members: Jesse Jansen on vocals, Enzo van der Sterren on lead guitar, Tim Posthumus on rhythm guitar, Abe Stadhouders on drums, and Percy Joosen on bass.

Neroth

Formed in late summer of 2020, Neroth is a Dutch band where black metal and classical vocals merge into one huge atmosphere. Their music is inspired by bands such as Mgła, Dissection, Dark Funeral, and many other black metal bands. However, the clean and classical female vocals that Neroth applies do not fit into the typical black metal genre. On June 10, 2022, Neroth released their debut EP titled Nocturnal Woods.

Noctambulist

Noctambulist

Noctambulist stands for contrasts. Serotonin summits and strung-out canyons. The empty and the grandiose. The beautiful and the appalling. Formed in 2015, Noctambulist are an atmospheric post-black metal outfit from Tilburg. Housemates J.D. Kaye, Sam C.A., and Mitchell Scheerder set out to create a hard-hitting, melancholic style of black metal that draws inspiration from other genres such as post-rock, shoegaze, new wave, and post-punk.

JACINTO is a nine-year-old child trapped in the body of a man near his forties. He lives in Mallou, a decaying and abandoned small village in the middle of the mountains, along with his parents and his dearest pig, Martiño. It's been a long time since the last time he spoke. Something happened when he was a child that shut him up for good. Jacinto spends his days playing in the woods, going to church on Sundays, watching old vampire movies and visiting his secret spot: an abandoned Seat 127 hidden in the mountain. His mother, Maruja, adores him and makes sure he has everything he needs. His Father, Amancio, is a retired legionnaire that wants to maintain the discipline at home. And Millan, his younger brother, left the village to live in town some years ago, and only comes back when he is looking for money. They are the Becerra family.

13 Notes en rouge

13Notes en rouge

After a seemingly drunken evening, Charlotte wakes up in the middle of the night on her bed. While she has no memory of the past few hours, she hears her co-tenant being violently attacked in her room. Unable to rescue her, Charlotte finds herself alone with the intruder. The latter accuses him of having stolen his most precious possession. To stay alive, Chartlotte will have to identify the object in question, and above all, remember the misdeeds of which she seems accused.

In the pure tradition of the crazy erotic neo-giallo which already characterized his old films, with "13 notes in red" François Gaillard signs his most accomplished work and shows total generosity offering a mixture of hemoglobin and sexuality on a tasty aesthetic punctuated with neon reds and leather. Suffice to say that it's been a long time since French bis cinema has produced something so enjoyable.
