Adrián García Bogliano is at the forefront of the exciting new wave of contemporary global horror coming out of South America, alongside directors Valentín Javier Diment and of course Guillermo del Toro. Demonstrating that previous genre successes like LATE PHASES, PENUMBRA and HERE COMES THE DEVIL were far from one-offs, SCHERZO DIABOLICO is Bogliano’s perverse twist on the revenge narrative, telling the tale from the perspective of the avenged rather than the avenger. Subverting the traditional abduction plot in ways that up until now were unimaginable, Bogliano combines suspense, black comedy and good old-fashioned gore in one of the year’s most unforgettable and twisted horror films.
