Here Comes the Devil director returns with black comedy ‘Scherzo Diabolico’


Spanish director Adrian Garcia Bogliano is a very busy man, and no sooner has he completed his latest film, a new one is announced. His werewolf horror Late Phases completed a short while ago, and will play at this years FrightFest, and before that his sinister Here Comes the Devil won critical acclaim.

Not all of the directors films are available here in the UK, with Cold Sweat and Penumbra among those not yet released, but with the director growing in popularity, hopefully his back catalogue will get the proper release they deserve.

Now that Late Phases is complete, Bogliano has already announced his next film, and we also have the first image from the black comedy, titled Scherzo Diabolico. Principal photography has already begun, and a press release has all the details.

A 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.
