LAST NIGHT IN SOHO
A young country girl hoping to become a fashion designer in London, finds herself mysteriously traveling back in time to the swinging 60s, spying on the frenzied days and nights of an aspiring singer (Anya Taylor-Joy of “The Queen’s Gambit”). Soon, however, her journey back and forward in time starts to become dark and threatening. The most anticipated horror film of the year, by the virtuoso British director of "Shaun of the Dead" and "Baby Driver", is a spectacular psychological thriller, something between Roman Polanski's "Aversion" and Dario Argento's "Suspiria", gradually transforming an exciting mystery into a Grand Guignol nightmare.

Small-town dweller Eloise comes to London aspiring to be a fashion designer. She is mysteriously transferred to 1966, trapped in the body of a famous singer. The past and the present in a maze of appearances and reality with destructive consequences.
Edgar Wright sneaks into the infamous London Soho, moves from the comical tone of his previous films
and gives us a paranoid cinephile thriller reminiscent of Polanski’s ‘Repulsion’, Schlesinger’s ‘Darling’ and – mainly – the pure styling of Dario Argento’s gialli. Thomasin McKcenzie transforms into Anya Taylor-Joy, the dazzling set design brings swinging London to life, Diana Rigg and Terence Stamp seal the deal of authenticity, and the horror ending will make you wonder if you ‘re gonna be able to sleep. P.G.
