Farley Granger sure made some strange choices once he delved into Italian genre films in the early '70s. In Something Creepng in the Dark (1971), directed by the mysterious Mario Colucci, Granger plays a handsome serial killer who's also a virtuoso piano player and a sex magnet for the ladies. The action takes place in a mansion (represented by a miniature model) cut off by the floods, where a number of shady characters hold a seánce to pass the time, with some spooky consequences. This often slow, at times surprisingly expressive, whodunnit with supernatural leanings benefits from an effective score by A.F.Lavagnino (who also acts in the film) and expertly atmospheric cinematography by Giuseppe Aquari. Lovers of densely atmospheric cinema shouldn't pass this one by.

With cameos from Lloyd Kaufman and the creator of Urotsukidoji, Salem Kapsaki's Spiderlings is the new colourful LGBT-musical that gives off amazing vibes! Three years in the making, with many a pitfall (like having their equipment stolen) along the way, Spidarlings is now at post-production stage. The filmmakers have come a long way to bring their vision to the screen and Spidarlings has great vibe to it, with some nods to Fassbinder, which is always nice!
