Sonno Profondo (2014) Review:

A razor blade behind curtains, a woman masturbating, and a strike resulting in some overly fake blood: in five minutes, the tone is set: Sonno Profondo is not your usual slasher, but a demented piece of art instead.

The grain of the film is made so as to look old, and thereby mimic Italian Giallo (Italian crime/horror genre which became popular in the 60-70’s with directors such as Mario Bava or Dario Argento). The crime story, the mysterious killer revealed at the end, the decoration, the bright red blood, all of this reminds that the film is a completely degenerated tribute to the genre.

The craziest aspect of the film lies in the way it is shot. It is a sort of the first-person view from the killer which reminds of the recent Maniac. It is also made up of constant close-ups of objects and body parts, and of an alternate of focus and out of focus shots that make the viewer dizzy, thereby bringing an interesting mood to the film.

Gorehound should pass their way, for there is almost no gore at all, but there is a really explicit sex scene to keep things shocking enough. The line between parody and art is thin and at times it gets difficult to understand if the film is being overly artistic or is purposively sarcastic to make the viewer smile.

In the end, Sonno Profondo is an atypical yet interesting experience. It gets a little repetitive, but since the film is only 67 minutes, it is never boring.
