A throwback to the slasher films of the 1980s, “Billy Club” is the latest splatter pic from Nick Sommer and Drew Rosas. Fifteen years after a triple homicide tore their Little League team and community apart, four friends reconvene to pay tribute to their fallen coach and teammates, only to be menaced by a mysterious figure hidden behind and antique umpire’s mask and brandishing a nailcovered baseball bat. This bloody, brutal romp creates a memborable new slasher villain to place alonside Jason Voorhees, Ghostface and Michael Meyers.

“Hasta Nunca follows MARIO LIGETTI, a middle aged hipster DJ who produces an underground radio show in Montevideo, Uruguay. He invites listeners to share their intimate thoughts with him and a live radio audience on the air. Mario re-negotiates his public and private personas during the course of the film and enters into an extra marital affair with JULIA, a divorcee searching for a new artistic spark.
In this international production (USA and Uruguay) each call in to the show was written and performed by local actors. Topics addressed in telephone conversations: lingering effects of the military dictatorship in Uruguay, the difficulty of obtaining an (illegal) abortion and varied identity issues. Ligetti’s show is a modern rollicking Miss Lonelyhearts with its host increasingly suffocated by the personal predicaments of his listeners.
Montevideo is a strong background character in the film’s visual landscape. Callers’ voices on the radio provide an acoustic counterpoint for an observational investigation of this ramshackle port city which retains the architectural vestiges of its colonial past.
