‘Last Night in Soho’: Edgar Wright Shares New Look at His Psychological Horror Film!! Check It Out!!

One of the many movies that was *supposed* to be released last year was Edgar Wright‘s Last Night in Soho, originally scheduled for release in September 2020 but ultimately pushed clear into 2021 by Focus Features. The psychological horror film is now set for release on April 23, 2021, and Wright has shared a brand new image with Total Film this week.

Last Night in Soho, starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie, is set in London’s Soho district during the Swinging Sixties, and there seems to be a time travel element involved.

Speaking with Empire recently, Wright teased a “very different” sort of movie.

It will feel very different to my other films,” Wright told Empire. “But I’ve always liked films which have a slow burn into something else, and a lot of my movies have that feeling.”

He continued, “Last Night 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, and there’s a certain type of psychological horror film that you got more in the ‘60s and ‘70s, that have something of an operatic nature. I’m using that kind of visual grammar.”

Wright wrote the script with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (“Penny Dreadful”).
