Spanish Queer Giallo ‘Cut!’ Headed to DVD and Digital Sept. 27 From Ariztical

The Spanish queer giallo comedy Cut! will be released on DVD and digital Sept. 27 from Ariztical Entertainment.

In the feature, Marcos, a rather unsuccessful film director, is immersed in the shooting of his new film, when a series of terrible murders starts to happen in Barcelona, and all of them seem to be traced back to him. Vampirized by cinema, and despite being hated for his films, Marcos needs to keep making them in order to live.

The film stars La Prohibida, Marc Ferrer, Marga Sarda, Maria Sola, Saya Solana, Alvaro Lucas Estada, Gregorio Sanz, Paco Serrano and Samantha Hudson.

Cut is a comedy about my experience as a film director opposed to both artistic and cinematographic standards and conventions,” director Marc Ferrer said in a statement. “It is at the same time a homage to and a parody of the giallo, an Italian terror genre which became popular in Italy’s ’70s, with high doses of homoeroticism and characters that fall within the queer imaginary. The film is about love and hatred. Hatred as a way of loving.

“The soundtrack is very important in my films, where songs carry the weight of the narration. For Cut!, Adrià Arbona (Papa Topo) and me have composed four original songs: ‘Mueres Por Mi,’ performed by La Prohibida, ‘Mal Herido,’ performed by Zaida Carmona and Papa Topo, ‘Acorralada,’ performed by Belinda and Delfina, and ‘Por Espana,’ performed by Samantha Hudson.”
