All those who miss the gory days of the Italian giallo films from the 1970s are in for a treat on Friday, October 29 when Olive Films begins its theatrical release of Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s new thriller AMER, opening at New York City’s Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, off University Place) and West Hollywood’s Laemmle’s Sunset 5 (8000 Sunset Boulevard). AMER has won raves at festivals all over the world, from Spain (Sitges) to New York (Lincoln Center). In part two (below the jump; see part one here) of our exclusive interviews, the young filmmakers sit down with Fango’s Tony Timpone to discuss AMER’s response from distributors and audiences; the meaning of the title; the film’s appeal to women and the larger numbers of women watching horror today; the relationship of sexuality and horror in giallo and much more.
The story of AMER follows a woman named Ana across three tumultuous periods of her life, culminating in a series of gruesome murders by a black-gloved killer. You can visit the official AMER site here and read an early review here. Watch for part three of our AMER features next week.
