Fabrice du Welz (Calvaire, Vinyan) returns with his best work yet: Alleluia. Loosely based on the Lonely Hearts Killers, this warped, horror romance is a mad depiction of psychotic and psychosexual devotion. It is one of the summer’s must-sees.
Out July 17th in NY & LA, as well as on VOD and iTunes from Music Box’s Doppelganger Releasing, Alleluia concerns Michel (Laurent Lucas), a born womanizer and professional hustler with a penchant for wooing lonely, vulnerable widows and divorcees. When he meets introverted single mom Gloria (Lola Dueñas) online and treats her to an electrifying first date, shes left completely smitten. Michel tries to swindle what he can out of the one-night stand, but his latest victim has other plans. Basking in the rush of new love, she frantically pursues him, witnessing the true depths of his depravity and offering herself as an accomplice in his seductive crimes. Having truly met their match in each other, the unhinged lovers embark on a deadly odyssey amplified by wild sex, unbridled jealousy, and passionate forays into the dark arts.”
I’m just going to reiterate and italicize that last line: the unhinged lovers embark on a deadly odyssey amplified by wild sex, unbridled jealousy, and passionate forays into the dark arts.
