From the minds of Luigi Cozzi (Contamination) and Daria Nicolodi (Suspiria) comes Paganini Horror a slash-tastic piece of cheesy Euro-horror that could only have been made in the '80s, and 88 Films will be bringing it to Blu-ray this September with a brand new 2K restoration.
In the film, an all-girl Rock group head to a remote villa for a music video shoot, they are in desperate need of a hit single and purchase sheet music from the mysterious Mr. Pickett (the legendary Donald Pleasence). They are told the music is a lost piece from the legendary violinist, Niccolò Paganini, and see this as their ticket to the top of the charts. Little do they know, that this music is cursed and that they have just unleashed hell upon themselves. Soon, the spirit of Paganini is roaming the villa, armed with a murderous violin, and picking off the fame-hungry band members one by one.
"88 Films are proud to present this bonkers slice of Italian cult cinema, a camp classic in the making, ripe for re-discovery and destined to be your new favourite worst movie, now even more outrageous thanks to this rocking 2K restoration."
