The UK Theatrical Premiere of Closed Circuit Extreme (2011)
Thursday 24th May - 8pm (Odeon Covent Garden)
Cine-Excess VI is honoured to present the UK theatrical premiere of one of this year’s most terrifying films: Closed Circuit Extreme. Directed by novelist Giorgio Amato (from his book Circuito chiuso), the film follows the plight of two college teens who conceal a series of webcams in the home of a suspected serial killer… with devastating and deadly results. Told totally through a montage of CCTV inserts, the film elevates the ‘mockumentary’ effect of Paranormal Activity to a new level of artistry and intensity, with the anticipation of brutality being as shocking as the acts of mutilation which the film reveals. While the film’s hyper-realist impact is undoubtedly due to the mastery of Amato’s direction, the calibre of Closed Circuit Extreme is confirmed via its release by Dania Films, the high profile Italian film house owned by the brother of Cine-Excess VI Guest of Honour: Sergio Martino.
We are delighted that Sergio Martino will be introducing the UK theatrical premiere of Closed Circuit Extreme on Thursday 24th May at 8pm.
