Known for writing and directing the Giallo-inspired French horror movies "Amer" and "The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears," cult Belgian filmmaking duo Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani are back with another stylish retro-pulp thriller -- this time, they're evoking the gritty shoot-'em-up style of the spaghetti western genre, specifically from the late 1960s and early '70s.

Check out the newly-released U.S. trailer for "Let the Corpses Tan," Cattet and Forzani's latest homage to vintage Italian thrillers, which is also an adaptation of the 1971 French pulp novel "Laissez bronzer les Cadavres (Corpses in the Sun)" by famed French crime novelist Jean-Patrick Manchette.

Starring Elina Lowensohn, Stephane Ferrara, Bernie Bonvoisin, and Herve Sogne, the French-language film is about an all-day gun battle between a gang of thieves and a pair of cops, which takes place on a remote Mediterranean island.

Featuring pre-existing music tracks by legendary film composer Ennio Morricone, "Let the Corpses Tan," which spent the better part of last year on the festival circuit, is getting a U.S. theatrical release in the summer, opening first in New York and Los Angeles on August 31st before expanding to other cities.

Belgian filmmakers Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani trade in the crushed velvet and creeping shadows of their giallo-worshiping first two films (Amer, The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears) for blistering sun, creaking leather and raining bullets in this glorious homage to 1970s Italian crime films. After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. Home to a reclusive yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. Based on a classic pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and featuring music by Ennio Morricone, Let the Corpses Tan is a deliriously stylish, cinematic fever dream that will slamfire your senses like buckshot to the brain.
