  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

The police are hunting down one of Manila’s biggest drug traffickers. A plainclothes policeman and a small-time dealer who has turned informer take part in the operation. But, as always, a shadowy face hides behind the clean façade. The film opens and closes with triumphant (and ironical) footage of a police parade. Mendoza’s nth journey into the teeming belly of a city where daytime seems like darkest night and salvation doesn’t exist. In the middle, the inferno of the traffickers’ nocturnal ambush.

2021: it hasn’t rained on Earth in months. A regular guy, Jamal, is invited to tell his story on a very popular radio program run by a disquieting and powerful radio host.

86'
USA

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

A house in the middle of the forest, a family which spends the weekend there, a mysterious woman they rescue and who behaves in an authoritarian and bizarre way when she comes to. An episode of the TV series Inside Crime reconstructs a gory family massacre. An unusual Grand Guignol-like horror film which combines satanic sects and cabins in the woods, dominated by female figures (above all, the iconic Barbara Crampton). Don Coscarelli is one of the executive producers..

EL ATAQUE DE LOS MUERTOS SIN OJOS

(RETURN OF THE EVIL DEAD) - (LA CAVALCATA DEI RESUSCITATI CIECHI)

by Amando De Ossorio
1973
87'
Spain

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

In the first sequel of the trilogy of the resuscitated blind people, the eyeless Knights Templar come out of their tombs during as a village celebrates the anniversary of their death; and more death is in store for everyone. Almost a blood-filled western, starring Tony Kendall (alias Luciano Stella) and Fernando Sancho, regulars in Italian-style westerns. And with a couple of situations which Carpenter has probably treasured. All in one night, but the final sequence at dawn is worth memorizing.

EL BUQUE MALDITO

(THE GHOST GALLEON) - (LA NAVE MALEDETTA)

by Amando De Ossorio
1974
87'
Spain

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

The second sequel of the series of the resuscitated blind people: an absurd ad campaign recklessly sends two uninhibited models onto a galleon which suddenly appeared in the fog off the Spanish coast. But the Knights Templar are waiting for them and even the squad sent out to find them won’t have a pretty end. A new setting (who knows if Carpenter remembered it for The Fog), but the massacre is inevitable; and the finale on the beach is memorable.

Finland, Norway

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

Four small-town Finnish boys with hearts of gold play metal (or better, symphonic post-apocalyptic reindeer-grinding Christ-abusing extreme war pagan Fennoscandinavian metal) in a band called the Impaled Rectum. They have always been scorned but after countless crazy-surreal adventures, they end up playing at a festival in Norway. A surprising comedy which brings together the soul of extreme metal and the spirit of Frank Capra.

A prison in outer space, a prisoner who is sworn to chastity, a female doctor who searches for signs of life: the first sci-fi movie, in English, by Claire Denis (Un beau soleil interieur, TFF35) is a paean to love in a reality which doesn’t even remember what love is.

IN FABRIC

(IN FABRIC) - (IN FABRIC)

by Peter Strickland
2018
118'
UK

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

A luxury department store displays a lavish red dress which sophisticated saleswomen drape around clients and encourage them to buy. Whoever purchases the dress and wears it will pay the consequences. As sly as ever, Strickland (in competition at the TFF with The Duke of Burgundy) works on colors and Italian-style detective story atmospheres, and on the structure of composite, Amicus-type horror movies, combining demonic sects and secret perversions with ironic elegance.

A woman and her daughters inherit an old house from an aunt. The first night they spend there, they are attacked by two maniacs. Sixteen years later, Beth returns to the house. Real and porcelain dolls are dressed in lace: you can play with them, you can undress them, you can dismember them, while communicating passages open up in the house and in time. The author of Martyrs isn’t afraid to dare and creates a morbid and disturbing horror movie which pays tribute to H. P. Lovercraft.
