Jinga Films and Matchbox Films are pleased to announce the UK release of Nicolas Onetti’s giallo homage FRANCESCA which will be released on Bluray, DVD and VOD from July 3rd 2017.

A psychopath stalks the city cleaning it of “impure and damned souls”. Moretti and Succo are the detectives tasked with resolving these “Dantesque” crimes. The secret is eventually revealed by Francesca, a little girl who was abducted 15 years ago, but has now reappeared.

Like Barberian Sound Studio, Amer and The Strange Colour Of Your Bodies Tears, FRANCESCA is an authentic and stylish celebration of the Italian giallo crime thrillers of the 60’s and 70’s made popular by Mario Bava and Dario Argento.

FRANCESCA received its World premiere at Cannes where it screened in Blood Windows and has since become a genre festival favourite with screenings at FrightFest, Sitges, Fantasporto, Fantaspoa and Morbido.

“The spirit of Giallo is very much alive and kicking in Luciano Onetti’s loving homage to the classic Italian sub genre” 

– Ben Robins, The National Student

 

“Impressive, creative, nostalgic. Onetti’s recreation of Giallo resurrects 1970’s Italian Horror” 

– Kat Hughes, The Hollywood News

 

“Absolute giallo…a truly spectacular blend of sleazy saturation, pop art excess and dark desires”

– Matthew Hammond, Movie Ramblings

 

“Surreal, seductive and violent, a stunning recreation of 70’s giallo” 

– Steve Wright, Britflicks

 

“A masterclass for nostalgia-seeking Giallo fans. You can’t help but wish this was the kind of film Argento was still making”

– Becky Roberts, Horror Talk

Mike ‘The Movie Guy’ Movie Review: Worry Dolls

On June 22 I posted a press release for the upcoming UK release of WORRY DOLLS.

Well guess what?! I got the chance to watch it…

What did I think of WORRY DOLLS…

I liked it.

I thought it had a great start. (lol) It jumps right into action! In the first 10 minutes of the movie – SERIOUS blood and brains. Texas Chainsaw Massacre style. (lol) Loved it. I think that’s one of the main things I liked about the movie – – the special effects. They definitelys didn’t hold back – – for a movie that didn’t seem to have a huge budget – I thought they got the job done!

I enjoyed the serial killer.

I enjoyed the dolls.

I dug it all.

I give WORRY DOLLS… 3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns.
