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 Fulci For Fake (Simone Scafidi, Italy, biography/documentary/horror).
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.
Every movie with a line of dialogue such as: “Life shits on everyone, but with me it had diarrhoea”, is a great movie in my book!
*Skip the premise (first two paragraphs) if you want to check my take on the twelve movies and their trailers out straight away. Though I suggest you not to do so, since it will explain how I came up with this list*
