It goes without saying that this review will be filled to the brim with spoilers, so steer away from it if you haven’t seen Nicolas Pesce’s Piercing but read it carefully if you have and are confused/frustrated about its ending. If you want to know what all the fuss is about, please check my spoiler-free review of the movie.
Receiving 11 nominations and 5 awards in 2016, over its appearance at genre film festivals, Dry Blood seemed ready to be released in 2017. However, it’s been shelved until January 11th, 2019. Why is that? Why a film that is widely praised in the horror community couldn’t find its way to a proper release?
