    Mini Review: L’Orafo/The Goldsmith (Grimmfest 2022)

    A few weeks late, we're giving our first coverage to Grimmfest 2022. Stella and Dan discuss the Italian comic heist thriller with a gruesome undertone, L'Orafo aka The Goldsmith, winner of the festival's Reaper Award for Best Screenplay.  Dan was unable to attend Grimmfest itself due to illness, but Stella did and recorded a spoilery interview with co-writer/director Vincenzo Ricchiuti and producer Manuela De Tommaso, included in the middle of the podcast.

    00.15.46 Interview with Vincenzo Richiutti and Manuela De Tomasso (spoilers)
    00.26.22 Spoiler discussion of The Goldsmith
     
    No recommendations on the actual podcast this episode, but Dan suggests UK listeners check out All4 which currently hosts a number of excellent horror films, including One Cut Of The Dead, American Psycho, The Mist and The Orphanage.

Jello❤ ,

Fantastic!!

Absolutely love this creepy macabre and extremely well researched podcast on the myths and horror. It's funny and yet serious and as a serious horror fan I respected the character discussions. Well done. I'm a fan!!
