PAGANINI HORROR
1989, 88 min, Dir: Luigi Cozzi

The devil isn’t fiddling around with this one! Director Luigi Cozzi (CONTAMINATION, HERCULES) opens the gates of hell with this blast of supernatural heavy metal horror. When an all-girl rock group uses an infamous piece of sheet music written by Paganini for their new album, they unknowingly activate a portal to the underworld and find themselves trapped. Co-written by and starring Daria Nicolodi (DEEP RED) and featuring a guest appearance by Donald Pleasance.


DEEP RED
PROFONDO ROSSO
1975, 106 min, Italy, Dir: Dario Argento

From the opening with a child slashing someone and a bloody knife dropping to the floor, we're plunged into an ever-deepening pool of repressed terrors. David Hemmings is a pianist sucked into an undertow of escalating homicide after he witnesses the murder of psychic Macha Meril. One of Argento's most justly famous gialli, where something as simple as a lizard writhing on the floor could represent a child's wounded psyche, bound someday to erupt in spectacular fits of murder. The dark and distinctive, keyboard-rich soundtrack - the first by prog rockers Goblin - was a major hit in Italy. With Daria Nicolodi.
