description

From the directors of AMER comes this gorgeous and lurid homage to masters of classic Italian Giallo horror.

Dan returns home to his Art Nouveau apartment building to find that his wife is missing. The police are no help, and there are no signs of a struggle or a break-in. His search for answers leads him to uncover strange details about his neighbors’ lives and, unexpectedly, Dan slowly begins to suffer from hallucinations and madness.

A cinematic riddle about obsession, desire, and memory, this blood-soaked homage is a bloody and taut psychosexual rabbit hole, a puzzle that begs not to be solved but invites the audience to revel in the sadomasochistic eroticism of the ultra-saturated color scheme.

An enigma of lush visuals and jarring violent imagery, with a lavish score of seventies Italian soundtrack classics by the likes of Ennio Morricone, this film will tie you up, caress you with a sharp blade, and keep you guessing from start to finish.

- Fangoria
"“Laced with the sort of violence and sexual content that was the giallo movement's stock in trade…” "
