Eurocrime! The Italian Cop And Gangster Films That Ruled The ’70S (2012) Directed by Mike Malloy, “Eurocrime! The Italian Cop and Gangster Films that Ruled the ’70s” is a documentary exploring the cop thrillers (or ‘poliziotteschi’ movies) which exploded from the Italian film industry during the 1970s. The film is usefully split into chapters charting the rise, fall and revival of the genre and providing some background into the faddist nature of the Italian business and its earlier Spaghetti Western and Giallo trends. All of this is illustrated by a pretty staggering array of clips and interviews with the likes of Italian stars Franco Nero, Luc Merenda and Maurizio Merli, as well as the Hollywood actors who also headed over to try their luck on the continent, including Richard Harrison, Christopher Mitchum and others. It’s a tribute to how effective “Eurocrime!” really is that the viewer genuinely needs no prior »

Opening Film - The Seasoning House (World Premiere)
Special make-up prosthetics and splatter genius Paul Hyett makes his directorial debut with a harrowing exploration into tense claustrophobia, hard-hitting action and rollercoaster suspense. In a Balkan brothel, where girls kidnapped by soldiers in war-torn zones are prostituted to the military and civilians alike, Angel (Robin Day) is the deaf mute orphan enslaved to care for the inmates. But unbeknownst to her captors, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the seasoning house planning her escape. Psychological horror in the nerve-shredding Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski style but with an ultra-modern twist.
89 mins Director: Paul Hyett UK 2012
