If you love the Giallo genre then do I have some special trailers to share with you below! We have the first trailer for Francesca, which comes from directing brothers Luciano and Nicolás Onetti (Sonno Profondo), and a brand new trailer for The Editor, which was acquired for US distribution by Scream Factory last month.

Francesca:

This looks stunning, and the whole 70’s/80’s style is captured superbly in the films design, look and feel. The trailer has plenty of classic Giallo moments, including ultra violence, some nudity and a mystery waiting to be solved, and the score is just insane as it keeps building to a monstrous noise.

The trailer is brilliantly put together, and if you weren’t aware this was a new film, it could easily be mistaken for a classic old Giallo from back in the day.

Francesca, directed by Luciano and Nicolas Onetti will have its world premiere at the Stiges Film Festival.

Synopsis:

It’s been 15 years since the disappearance of little Francesca, daughter of the renowned storyteller, poet, and dramatist Vittorio Visconti; and the community is stalked by a psychopath bent on cleaning the city of “impure and damned souls.” Moretti and Succo, questioned by the ineffectiveness of the police force, are the detectives in charge of elucidating the mystery surrounding these “Dantesque” crimes. Francesca seems to have returned, but she is not be the same girl who everyone knew…

The Editor:

If you don’t know about this film yet then where have you been? We have been talking about this Astron-6 horror for some time now, and we’ve already shared numerous trailers.

Recently acquired by Scream Factory, the film now has a new trailer to promote the US release, and its the best trailer yet for this serious Giallo homage.

A loving tribute to the gory and gruesome erotic horror of classic Italian giallo cinema, The Editor spins the twisted tale of a once-prolific film editor who becomes the prime suspect in a series of murders haunting a seedy 1970s film studio.

Directed and produced by Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy, this stylish horror comedy became a festival darling after its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, going on to earn audience and critical acclaim at festivals across North America including the San Francisco International Film Festival and the Fantasia Film Festival.

Making its US Blu-ray and DVD debut on September 8, 2015, from Scream Factory, The Editor comes loaded with bonus features, including an audio commentary with Adam Brooks, Connor Sweeney, and Matt Kennedy; a brand new “Making Movies Used to Be Fun” documentary; deleted scenes; music and poster featurettes; and more! Fans who pre-order their copy from ShoutFactory.com will also receive a free collectible poster.

The Editor stars Paz de la Huerta (“Boardwalk Empire”), Samantha Hill (Bad Meat), Laurence R. Harvey (ABCs of Death 2), Adam Brooks (Manborg), Matthew Kennedy (Father’s Day), Conor Sweeney (ABCs of Death 2), Tristan Risk (Dark Continents), and Udo Kier (Borgia, Blade).

ASTRON-6 presents A Kennedy/Brooks Inc. Film. The Editor is written by Matthew Kennedy, Adam Brooks, and Conor Sweeney; special effects by Emersen Ziffle, Steven Kostanski, and Aftermath FX; featuring music by Claudio Simonetti, Carpenter Brut, and Jeremy Gillespie; executive producer Andria Spring; associate producers Jerry Wasserman and Kevin Ascolillo II; produced and directed by Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy.

Synopsis:
Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks) was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
