It’s finally that time of the year… kind of, since this article comes out way later than most “best movies of the year” lists. I apologise for being late with my take on the BEST Horror Movies of 2019, but I wanted to make sure I included every single horror film I was interested in and had the potential to fit such a list, therefore I had to wait for some to be screened near where I live and for others to be sent to me. On top of that, I wanted to watch all the movies I loved at least twice, both to make sure they would belong on this list and to decide what spot they would take.
For the first time, I’ve been granted press accreditation for the Milano Film Festival – which is becoming one of the most prestigious European film festivals. With a selection of 27 feature-length films and over 41 short movies, the main theme of this year’s MFF is “coming-of-age” stories, told in every kind of genre you can think of: on this website, you’ll find reviews of every horror-related film at the festival, plus a few articles on other movies that you’ll find in the Beyond Horror section of the website. This is my review of A Certain Kind of Silence (Michael Hogenauer, Czech Republic/Netherlands/Latvia, drama/horror).
The 24th edition of the Milano Film Festival will be held in Milan, Italy, from the 4th to the 10th of October. For the first time, the Milano Film Festival – which is becoming one of the most prestigious European film festival – will entirely take place in The Space Cinema Odeon, the oldest theatre in Milan and one of the oldest in Italy, and it will benefit from the artistic direction of Gabriele Salvatores (Mediterraneo, 1991), a filmmaker regarded as one of the best European directors of our time.
