Last Night in Soho Trailer has a Real Giallo Feel

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

The London-set psychological thriller stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, and Matt Smith. Edgar Wright directed “Last Night in Soho” from a script he co-penned with “Penny Dreadful” writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns.  “Anya Taylor-Jay was quoted as saying "It’s very claustrophobic. The colors are so intense. It’s a really well-directed acid trip." And I would have to agree.


The synopsis for Last Night in Soho goes like this:

A psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate about fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences.

After watching the trailer, it checks all my boxes. Psychological, slasher, Giallo, and thriller. All the bright colors remind me of a fever dream. I am truly glad we have a new Giallo-style film since we rarely get them. And the fact that it is from Edgar Wright is just the icing on the cake. Now for the bad news. We have to wait till October for the release.
