    What Have You Done to Solange?

    ★★★½

    Massimo Dallamano´s “What Have You Done to Solange?” is a giallo of the darker kind. It´s perverted, disturbing, and bleak, has a truly engaging whodunnit mystery at its center, and explores controversial psychological and social themes.

No matter how often I´ve seen it, with every rewatch I love it a bit more. 40 years after its release, it remains the benchmark for the space horror genre and a masterclass in almost every aspect of filmmaking, may it be direction, screenplay, worldbuilding, cinematography, editing, set design, creature design, special effects, sound…
