Last Night in Soho

Last Night in Soho was originally set to be released in September 2020. However, due to the mandated shutdowns of Movie theaters across the globe, the feature was rescheduled for late April. On January 21st, Focus Features announced a new release date for Edgar Wright’s psychological horror film. This announcement follows suit with a myriad of other titles that have had to find a new home in our calendars. Last Night in Soho is now set to be released on October 22, 2021. While the news of a delay may be disheartening for some, the thought of experiencing Wright’s latest under twinkling theater lights in the heart of the spooky season is certainly enough to ginger up any connoisseur. 

The affordance of atmosphere aside, there is much to promise that Last Night in Soho will be well worth the wait. Last week Empire released a teaser image for the film’s promotion showing a dazed Anya Taylor-Joy bleeding from the nose. Having recently experienced heaps of praise for her performance in Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, fans everywhere will be happy to see Taylor-Joy step back in time yet again. This time she’ll be playing a fashion designer who gets transported to London in the year 1960, where she encounters her idol before their rise to fame. However, all is not what it seems as the fabric of time begins to unravel in terrifying ways. Sharing the screen is Jojo Rabbit’s Thomasin Harcourt Mckenzie, Matt Smith, and Terence Stamp. The film also stars the late Diana Rigg and Margaret Nolan in their final roles.

In his latest film, the Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director told Empire in a recent interview that the film “starts in a more psychological realm and then starts to get increasingly intense as it goes along. And I always like to gravitate towards making a film in genres I miss. There’s a certain type of psychological horror film that you got more in the ‘60s and ‘70s with something of an operatic nature. I’m using that kind of visual grammar.” Considering his latest statement, perhaps Last Night in Soho may fall in line with films like Douglas Hickox’s 1973 Theatre of Blood, which also starred Diana Rigg in a British horror comedy film. Perhaps we will see other influences from the 60s and 70s too—such as Italian Giallo and the gothic horror of Hammer Film Productions. Identifying Roman Polanski’s Repulsion and Nicolas’s Don’t Look Now as inspiration in an interview with IndieWire, Edgar Wright hints that his latest work is sure to be quite the head-trip. With a plethora of exciting possibilities and plenty of time now to speculate, the October release of Last Night in Soho waits for us outside the light at the other end of the tunnel.
