Let The Corpses TanBelgium, France, 2017
The Mediterranean summer: blue sea, blazing sun....and 250 kg of gold stolen by Rhino and his gang! They had found the perfect hideout: an abandoned and remote hamlet now taken over by an artist in search of inspiration. Unfortunately, surprise guests and two cops compromise their plan, and the heavenly place where wild happenings and orgies used to take place turns into a gruesome battlefield. LET THE CORPSES TAN is a beautiful, experimental and bold take on the classic pulp crime story from visionary directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (AMER, THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS).

"Cattet and Forzani shoot it like the nightmare you’d have after watching Mario Bava’s entire filmography in one sitting, with a dollop of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s sexualized weirdness in a recurring fantasy sequence."- NOW Toronto
