To the 40-something Seattle housewives holding a glass of wine right now while reading this: Naples in Veils is for you, and, yes, grab your Hitachi. When Adriana meets Andrea at an occult Neapolitan ceremony at her aunt’s house, it seems like lust at first sight—that is, until Andrea turns up eyeless and dead on Adriana’s autopsy table the next day. In an aggressively sensual mix of murder, sex, and mystery, this film is an enthralling story of violence that masks itself with the exquisite. Nipples—I mean, Naples—may be in veils, but the veils can always be torn off.

(Apologies: we could not find a trailer with subtitles. But never fear, the film will be shown with them at the screening.)
