‘Tulpa’ Review

30 May 2013 9:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Claudia Gerini, Michele Placido, Nuot Arquint, Michela Cescon, Ennio Tozzi | Written by Federico Zampaglione, Giacomo Gensini | Directed by Federico Zampaglione

Tul-pa (from the Tibetan): meaning a magically produced illusion or creation. The concept of a being or object which is created through sheer discipline alone. It is a materialized thought that has taken physical form.

Italian rock star turned director Federico Zampaglione made a splash in 2009 when his first film Shadow played to a packed audience at London’s Frightfest. Returning some three years later, Zampaglione unleashed Tulpa on an eager and willing horror-hungry audience. I originally reviewed Tulpa after the Frightfest screening last August in London and whilst I loved the film for it’s classic giallo trappings and gloriously Ott murders, many attendees felt differently.

In fact, the reaction was so mixed that director Federico Zampaglione went back to the editing room post-screening, trimming some 20 minutes »

Le Guetteur Movie Review

23 April 2013 3:10 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Le Guetteur Director: Michele Placido Starring: Danieul Auteuil, Mathieu Kassovitz, Olivier Gourmet, Francis Renaud, Nicolas Briançon, Jérôme Pouly de la Comédie Française, Violante Placido, Luca Argentero.  The established Italian director and actor, Michele Placido, defines his new film as the French version of ‘Romanzo Criminale’ (a popular Italian criminal drama, whose movie version was directed by Placido, and was eventually made into a television series). But the director’s high hopes don’t match the actual outcome. The cinematography of Arnaldo Catinari is beautiful, dark and overbearing, but it clashes tremendously with the director’s style of shooting, that resembles that used for television, with very tight close-ups. The screenplay, written by Cedric  [ Read More ]

Red-band, Nsfw trailer: New giallo film “Tulpa”

22 January 2013 8:32 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Directed by Federico Zampaglione from a script he wrote with Giacomo Gensini, based on a story by veteran Italo-horror scribe Dardano Sacchetti, Tulpa stars Claudia Gerini as Lisa, a businesswoman who leads a secret night life of sexual exploration and experimentation, centered on the titular nightclub. When her lovers start getting brutally killed, she undertakes her own investigation to avoid exposing her carnal activities. Michele Placido and Nuit Arquint (Shadow’s memorable villaing Mortis) co-star; Leonardo Cruciano created the makeup FX, and actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta (whose credits range from The Day Of The Beast to The Rite) was one of the producers.

Tulpa, which we first reported on here, screened last year at London’s FrightFest in not-quite-completed form. “We knew what worked in the genre,” Zampaglione says, “but we were also aware of its shortcomings, and that is why we test-screened a rough cut of the film to an audience at Frightfest. »

This week's new films

Les Misérables | Gangster Squad | American Mary | What Richard Did | Midnight Son | Jiro Dreams Of Sushi | The Lookout | May I Kill U? | Underground

Les Misérables (12A)

(Tom Hooper, 2012, UK) Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne. 158 mins

The King's Speech director plus the globally adored musical: it's a match made in commercial heaven, a third-hand version of a 19th-century French saga, and the most epic celebrity karaoke session ever filmed. The fact that it's entirely sung, "live" on set, supposedly communicates more "emotion", but this is already oversaturated with so much melodramatic incident, the effect is numbing.

Gangster Squad (15)

(Ruben Fleischer, 2013, Us) Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin. 113 mins

Brolin's under-the-radar police squad guns for Penn's La mobsters in this exuberantly violent, but disappointingly straightforward 1940s thriller, derived more from modern videogames than vintage film noirs. Action definitely speaks louder than words here.

American Mary (18)

Film Review: 'The Lookout'

10 January 2013 4:30 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ With enough opening jump cuts to give Baz Lurhmann a minor epileptic spasm, Michele Placido's steely French crime thriller The Lookout (Le Guetteur, 2012) is a Parisian pileup of supersonic, neo-thriller folly. Parading two undisputed talents, Daniel Auteuil and Mathieu Kassovitz, the stars wheeze through scenes with desperate gusto, intent on reaching their respective goals. Yet, while conceptually sound Placido's intentions may be, his latest sniper oriented release fails to really hit the mark. Initially posing itself as a cop killing romp, Placido's opening scenes offer strong promise with a clear lean toward Hollywood exoticism.
