Scherzo Diabolico

Aram is a wearied accountant with 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 there's more to Aram than his mild-mannered demeanor lets on: he has been secretly devising a scheme to finally get what he feels he is owed. One day he asserts his power menacingly when he kidnaps a schoolgirl and keeps her tied up in an abandoned warehouse. What seems like the perfect plan soon unravels into his worst nightmare, and his carefully constructed scheme comes crashing down piece by bloody piece.

    Still haven't seen a bad film from director Bogliano. The guy is not one to compromise. His stories are as intense as they come and I love him for that. A mild lawyer unlocks his most disturbing side in order to straighten out his life at work and at home. His criminal act unlocks another disturbing side but from his crime victim unleashing holy hell on everyone around. This is not for the innocent, evil runs wild here. Loved it!!!!

    He encontrado mi nueva película favorita de Adrián García-Bogliano.

    ¿Por dónde empiezo? Por la música, por la atmósfera que logra sostener con pulso experto durante todo el metraje, el gore, los personajes, el giro, los movimientos de cámara, la tremenda visión de ver a Molina... would you like to know more?

    Soy muy muy muuuuy fan de AHÍ VIENE EL DIABLO pero cuando vi el trailer de ésta la neta no se me antojo mucho. Pero en fin confié en Bogliano y que bueno que lo hice! Gran película! Este dude es un pinche loco y lo agradezco muchísimo!

    Hay títulos increíbles, y luego, en otro nivel, está Scherzo Diabólico. Bogliano es un maestro para poner títulos que por lo general invitan a imaginar algo mejor de lo que terminamos viendo en pantalla. Y esta es creo la única que creo que se acerca. Así que es muy posiblemente mi favorita suya. Barreiro es un genial godín criminal, y el resto de los actores están a la altura. Si fuera quisquilloso diría que esto se descarrila un poco rumbo al final. Pero hay una buena dosis de gore de calidad como para que se me olvide.

    Interesting. I liked that it wasn't shot from the victim but from the assailant.
