As someone shoots a documentary about them, a suicide snuff video goes viral on their platform but the video seems to hide something truly disturbing. A mockumentary-come-horror movie, with an original use of found footage, perfects actors and mounting tension.

Na Hong-jin (The Chaser, The Yellow Sea) is one of Korea’s best and most surprising new directors, as he shows once again in this wrong-footing and very dark horror film. A mountain village, a mysterious stranger, an illness which suddenly spreads, a policeman who investigates and finds his own family in danger: nothing is as it seems because Evil is lurking where you least expect it.

La maschera del demonio

Section:

  • 34° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

A witch who had been burned at the stake two centuries earlier is brought back to life by chance: she tries to enter the body of her great-granddaughter, who is her spitting image. Debut director Mario Bava invents Italian-style goth, working with morbid atmospheres and objects, as well as the disquieting face of Barbara Steele. Inspired by Il vij by Gogol, it owes part of its lure to the sophisticated black and white photography by Bava himself.

Section:

  • 34° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL

By the director of Insomnia (on which Christopher Nolan based his same-titled remake), a nightmarish journey into the coils of a sick mind, that of a young pyromaniac who creates chaos in a tranquil Norwegian town. The compulsion to do evil, a general inability to acknowledge, the difficulty to forgives: a drama but also a thriller, almost a horror movie lacerated by the flames.
