'Let the Corpses Tan'

Franco-Belgian duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani continue their Euro-exploitation remixing with this skewed take on Seventies thrillers, gathering a bunch of smooth criminals at a house on the Mediterranean coast and then handing them loads of bullets and sharp blades for backstabbing. Their vibrant retro-sleaze style is out in full force, but this is the closest they've come to actually attaching their aesthetic to a genuine story, albeit a stock cops-vs-robbers one – and the result feels like a big step forward. Add in some genuinely eye-popping Jodorowsky-esque psychedelic interludes and Hal Hartley regular Elina Löwensohn as the fatalest of femmes, and this is what a midnight movie is supposed to look like.
