    I'd buy that just for the poster art.

    I quite like this weird little flick. There was a stellar DVD release from Germany about 15 years ago with two different cuts of the film, audio commentary by director Cozzi and a bunch of deleted scenes that tried to add a Lovecraftian cosmic horror spin to the film! If 88 Films can port all of that over, I'm game. If not, I'll wait for someone else to do it.

    Yeah, those deleted scenes are essential... so bizarre. An extended cut adding them back in would be awesome.

    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. 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! 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.

    Could any of the females in the group pass for Joan Jett or Cherie Currie? If so, that may have been the primary reason these movie was green-lit.
