Nicolas Winding Refn to produce remake of What Have You Done to Solange?

Nicolas Winding Refn has already added two remakes to his upcoming slate this month in Maniac Cop and The Witchfinder General, and now we have a third, with Deadline reporting that the Danish filmmaker is set to produce a new version of Massimo Dallamano’s 1972 giallo What Have You Done to Solange?.

The Los Angeles-set remake will team Refn with Fulvio Lucisano, who produced the original film and has released all of Refn’s films in Italy. The duo reportedly decided to move forward with the project after Refn presented a restored cut of Lucisano’s Planet of the Vampires in Cannes last week.

“[The remake is part of a] continuing renewal of genre movies, and bringing them to a new audience,” said Refn. “I’ve really cherry-picked films that I think have a strong potential to be reinvented and also something that is artistically out there.”

Full Cannes Press Conference For ‘The Neon Demon’ and First Track From Cliff Martinez’s Score

He walked away empty-handed from the Cannes Film Festival, but we imagine Nicolas Winding Refn took some delight in the wide range of opinions when it came to his latest film The Neon Demon. We were certainly on one end of the spectrum in our review, and in the Cannes press conference he discussed this divisiveness, saying, “If I don’t split, what are we doing here? Art is not about good or bad. Those days are over. The internet has changed. Film, as an art, is about the experience.”

He also discussed shooting in chronological order, getting in touch with his inner 16-year-old girl, his love for Brian De Palma, capturing necrophilia, and Lars von Trier being “over the hill” due to his drug use. He went on to say, “The last thing I saw Lars von Trier do is trying to tell my wife he’s trying to have sex with her.

Refn To Produce Giallo Remake "Solange"

"Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn has added a third remake of a classic horror film to his upcoming filmmaking plans and, like those films, he's set to only produce rather than direct for his Space Rocket banner.

This third one, which follows on from the long announced "Maniac Cop" remake and the recently announced "Witchfinder General" remake, will be a new version of Massimo Dallamano's 1972 giallo film "What Have You Done To Solange?".

Loosely based on the Edgar Wallace mystery novel, the story is set at an all-girls school where a killer is on the loose. A gym teacher, who has been sleeping with one of his students, becomes a suspect and sets out to find the real killer.

Fulvio Lucisano, who produced the original and has released all of Refn's films in Italy, will produce. Refn presented a restoration of Lucisano's "Planet Of The Vampires" at Cannes last week.

Leonel VHS Talks What Have You Done To Solange? With Camille Keaton

Every devoted horror fan at one time or another has sat down and taken the time to jot down his or her “bucket list” of people – actors, directors, etc. – who have all appeared in or helped helm horror films they love and have grown an attachment to. When I was a horror “newbie” back in the early-to-mid-80’s, there were films that shocked and terrified me and the more I watched them as years progressed, the more I became curious about the people who put these films together. I dreamed of getting to meet and hang out with those fabulous individuals that comprised their casts. The first one I ever put together was in the tenth grade sometime in 1990 while sitting in Physics class, staring at Mrs. Gooch and longing for the bell to ring to let us go. I had just started to educate myself on the popular (and at the same time,

Bluray Review: What Have You Done To Solange?

As the then brand-new format of the Digital Versatile Disc began making it presence quite apparent in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, hundreds upon hundreds of horror films that had either been forgotten or banished into obscurity suddenly began to resurface and slowly obtain a devoted audience. Everything from lesser-known slashers and overlooked art-house fare to catalogs full of lushly photographed pieces all coming out of the seventies and eighties were either finding their first ever releases on the format or being re-released in limited special editions. Distributors like early forerunners Anchor Bay were taking it upon themselves to locate and dig out these movies, give them glorious restorations and special features and release them to the buying public, delighting horror connoisseurs across the world. What resulted was an overwhelmingly renewed interest in and unexpected demands for films of that era, in particular the giallo that all began in

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue

Zombies. The damn things are everywhere now, the last 12 years filling the screens big and small , carried on the rotting backs of Shaun of the Dead and the Dawn of the Dead remake (both 2004). The Walking Dead is one of the biggest shows on TV, and films ranging in quality from great to Netflix saturate the market. But let’s go back to a time when the zombie film as we know it (the Age of Romero) was in its infancy. Jorge Grau’s The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1974) acts as a bridge between two seminal George Romero films, Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (‘78), and rightly stands as one of the finer Euro horrors. If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth the trip.

Released in 1975 in North America as Don’t Open the Window, this Spanish/Italian coproduction was frequently paired

Blu-ray: What Have You Done to Solange?

  • CineVue
★★★★★ Arrow Video continue to impress with their superb run of Blu-ray releases, this time with Massimo Dallamano's classic giallo What Have You Done to Solange? (1972). Enrico (Fabio Testi) is a charismatic but sleazy teacher at an English Catholic girl's school, engaged in an ill-advised affair with one of his students, Elizabeth (Cristian Galbo). In typical giallo style, the film opens with Enrico seducing Elizabeth in a row boat, while only meters away one of her classmates is being horrifically murdered.

What Have You Done to Solange? | Blu-ray Review

Massimo Dallamano may be best known to some as the cinematographer of Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars (1964) and For a Few Dollars More (1965), credited under the pseudonym Jack Dalmas. Following his collaborations with Leone, Dallamano would only serve as cinematographer twice more (his last credit being French director Michel Deville’s 1966 comedy The Mona Lisa Has Been Stolen starring George Chakiris and Marina Vlady). The explosive popularity of the spaghetti western would allow Dallamano to begin his own career as a director, with 1967 debut Bandidos (credited under another pseudonym, Max Dillman), but he’d soon after turn to the bread and butter of more exploitative genre fare. The director of eleven features, up until his death in 1976, Dallamano’s enduring, fascinating masterpiece stands as the 1972 title What Have You Done to Solange? Credited as a giallo staple, Dallamano’s film is more of a hybrid of subgenres, a mixed giallo and poliziotteschi film.

‘What Have You Done To Solange?’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Fabio Testi, Cristina Galbó, Karin Baal, Joachim Fuchsberger, Günther Stoll, Claudia Butenuth, Camille Keaton, Maria Monti, Giancarlo Badessi, Pilar Castel, Giovanna Di Bernardo, Vittorio Fanfoni, Marco Mariani | Written by Massimo Dallamano, Bruno Di Geronimo | Directed by Massimo Dallamano

Movies that are described as “giallo” normally tend to depend on certain hallmarks, with the black-gloved killer killing their victims with a sharp knife. We as the audience follow the detective on their mission to hunt down this killer, with the inevitable big shocking finale. With What Have You Done To Solange? we get a film that does stick to these tropes quite heavily, but also subverts this very expectation to make the movie more memorable than most other films of this type.

When a sadistic killer is preying on girls at a Catholic school for girls the eyes of suspicion fall on a handsome teacher who is having an affair with one of the students.

Forgotten Gialli: Battle of the Sexies

  • MUBI
The final part in our series on Forgotten Gialli

My problem with the misogyny that runs through the giallo genre is not so much that it's there, but that it's so often unexamined. At least Sam Peckinpah's films seem to tell me something about the demons of insecurity, paranoia and loathing infesting his mind. I'm frustrated, for instance, that Dario Argento has portrayed the graphic mutilation-murder of women in his films so frequently (his own leather-gloved hands doubling for those of the killer), without ever seeming to take much interest in why this subject seems to obsess him. "I love women," he has said, "therefore I would rather show a beautiful woman being killed than an ugly man." Is it just me, or does that statement open up questions, and even paradoxes? For a former critic, Argento seems disinclined to analyze things.

Not only do the films not actively interrogate their own violence,
