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).
With Roberto De Feo’s The Nest (Il Nido) being one of the most positive surprises in 2019, in terms of horror cinema, I felt compelled to delve in-depth into this Italian horror film. This article will feature major spoilers, so I’d recommend reading my spoiler-free review of the movie if you don’t want your experience ruined. You’ve been warned!
Don’t worry, though, this movie doesn’t feature any silly guy in a bear suit punching women around!
