Dark Sky to release Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s Scherzo Diabolico in 2016

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

MPI Media Group has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to darkly comedic horror film SCHERZO DIABOLICO, planning a release on multiple platforms through their genre division Dark Sky Films sometime in 2016.

SCHERZO DIABOLICO is the latest horror offering from Adrián García Bogliano, whose previous credits include COLD SWEAT, HERE COMES THE DEVIL, LATE PHASES, and the "B is for Bigfoot" segment of THE ABCs OF DEATH. The film centers on

an accountant living an unbearably dull existence. With a nagging wife who berates him for not being assertive enough, and a measly paycheck, he quietly suffers while awaiting a long-deserved promotion. But he has been secretly devising a scheme to finally get what he feels he is owed: One day he kidnaps a schoolgirl and stashes her in an abandoned warehouse. But what seems like the perfect plan soon unravels into his worst nightmare, and his carefully constructed scheme comes crashing down.

Francisco Barreiro and Daniela Soto Vell star as the accountant and the schoolgirl.

Sounds like an interesting film from a director who obviously has an appreciation for the genre and has done some cool work within it. I'll be checking out SCHERZO DIABOLICO to see just how the accountant's ill-advised plan becomes a nightmare. Will you?
