Our friends over at Bloody Disgusting scored exclusive tidbits about Chilean filmmaker Gonzalo Badilla’s next film, Maldito Amor (Damned Love), which the director spoke a bit about.
“We’re paying several homages with this movie to the classic ones; even our killer looks just like the Blood and Black Lace killer from the great Mario Bava,” explains Badilla, “and for the music we’re doing an alliance with the Greek group Vercetti Technicolor for the soundtrack (they specialize in horror disco).”
Check out the plot rundown below and expect more soon!
Prom night is ruined for a group of teenagers thanks to the assassination of their teacher Marion, who was brutally murdered just two days before the big event by a faceless maniac. This will ruin the plans of Arturo (Sebastián Badilla), who was waiting for that exact moment to declare himself to the girl of his dreams, María Elena (Trinidad de la Noi), who just suddenly started a relationship with a mysterious magician called Tatán (Nicolás Luisetti). Arturo will start a friendship with Beatriz, the most popular girl in school, to get María Elena jealous. But what Arturo doesn’t know is that the faceless maniac isn’t done killing. He and Beatriz will have to begin solving the mysteries for all the wrong reasons and, in the meantime, also try to survive the hands of the killer.
