The Scarlet Worm

It is with great pleasure that FFF finally has the opportunity to
present a brand new western movie in the programme! This
genre that practically owned the cinemas during the 50s and
60s, but in recent years has been confined to strange mash-up
movies with aliens and metal spiders.
Presented, as it should be, in beautiful Cinemascope, this is the
story of an aging, poetry-loving professional killer who takes
his job very seriously, and his old colleague who reinvented
himself as a barber who can’t cut hair. Mix this with a huge
dose of the Coen brothers’ style and Sam Pekinpah’s unique
and, to say the least, blood-splattered 70s westerns and you
have The Scarlet Worm. Or, as the critic in Fangoria said, “One
of the best movies you’ll see soon. It reinvents the Western. It is
a film that transcends its meager budget to show fledgling filmmakers
what can be achieved when imagination takes the reins”.

    THE SCARLET WORM is one of the best westerns I’ve seen in later years. Wonderful images and a though provoking and curious story that deals with themes not common in this genre.

    If you have the chance to watch it – do so! You won’t be dissapointed.

    Whoa! Sweden eh? I LOVE Sweden! I have a great friend in Stockholm. Anyway, I am honored and delighted that you like it. I am the “old colleague who reinvented
    himself as a barber who can’t cut hair.”
    Anyone casting a good role in Sweden? Give me a call.
