Dir. Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani - 2018 - 92m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - Belgium / France - In French with English subtitles - $8 general / $6 students

Belgian filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani trade in the crushed velvet and creeping shadows of their giallo-worshiping first two films (Amer, The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears) for blistering sun, creaking leather and raining bullets in this glorious homage to 1970s Italian crime films. After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. Home to a reclusive yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. Based on a classic pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and featuring vintage music cues by Ennio Morricone, Let the Corpses Tan is a deliriously stylish, cinematic fever dream that will slamfire your senses like buckshot to the brain.

"Meticulously executed, obsessively stylized. You almost expect to see Dario Argento or Mario Bava’s name on the credits and for Morricone to have composed the music." – Allan Hunter, Screen International

"Beautiful, experimental and bold. One of the most exciting cinematic experiences I’ve had in quite some time. I couldn’t look away for fear of missing yet another thing I’d never witnessed before." – Evan Saathoff, Birth.Movies.Death.

"An exercise in fetishization, of both the human body and the visual medium that captures it. There’s a gleeful, twisted imagination at work here." – Vikram Murth, RogerEbert.com

"Cattet and Forzani might have made the quintessential midnight movie." – Marshall Shaffer, Slash Film

"Let the Corpses Tan might be the best 1970s Italian crime thriller never made." – Todd Gilchrist, Wizard World

"A fetishistic, ultra-violent exploitation flick that's all kinds of artistic and exciting. A stunning display of visual seduction and slaughter-first gunplay." – Matt Donato, We Got This Covered

Gayce, a take-no-shit young woman, deals a hallucinogenic drug called "theta," facilitating an audience for her friends' all-girl rock band. When Gayce's friends are brutally murdered, she must solve the mystery behind the murders and protect herself from the killer. She discovers the connections between theta and the murders ... and learns a terrifying truth. That the world -- indeed her whole reality -- is not as it seems.

“A little bit indie art film, a little bit horror, a little bit gore porn (with some actual porn), all adds up to a whole lot of edgy, thoughtful, quality entertainment.” - Bradley Gibson, Film Threat
