Year: 2014 Director: Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead
2 American films were set in Puglia last year. The execrable Walking On Sunshine and this rather cool indie horror/scifi/romance. Starring indie darling Lou Taylor Pucci (‘Thumbsucker’) -seemingly recovered from the horrific violent attack he endured in 2010- as an American who comes to Puglia to escape, only to fall in love with a very mysterious, enigmatic beauty, German actress Nadia Hilker. Mostly filmed around where I live, the scenery is, of course, stunningly beautiful! But aside from that, it’s one of the most original ‘horror’ flicks I’ve seen for a long time. Sensitive and thoughtful rather than scary.
Might appeal to people who enjoyed:
It has perhaps a tiny bit of a Doctor Who vibe to it, but slower and creepier. A touch of Under The Skin too.
