Artist Stefano travels to a remote Italian village to restore the local church’s ghoulish fresco. Hearing rumours that the original painter tortured his subjects to capture the true agonies of death, Stefano gradually uncovers the terrifying secrets of this sleepy place. Unlike many Italian horrors of the time, Pupi Avati’s macabre masterpiece forgoes baroque set-pieces in favour of slow-burn, insidious dread. The results are unforgettable.
