Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights to Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s stylish neo-Western Let The Corpses Tan which had a critically acclaimed unspooling at Toronto’s Midnight Madness section and Austin’s Fantastic Fest, writes Variety.
Adapted from Jean-Patrick Manchette and Jean-Pierre Bastid’s 1971 crime thriller, Let the Corpses Tan takes place during a Mediterranean summer: blue sea, blazing sun….and 250 kg of gold stolen by Rhino and his gang. They had found the perfect hideout: an abandoned and remote hamlet now taken over by a woman artist in search for inspiration. Unfortunately, surprise guests and two cops compromise their plan: the heavenly place where wild happenings and orgies used to take place turns into a gruesome battlefield.
Said to be “relentless and mind-blowing,” Elina Löwensohn, Stéphane Ferrara, and Bernie Bonvoisin star.
Kino Lorber is planning to release the film theatrically next summer, followed by a launch on SVOD, VOD and physical media in fall 2018.
