‘This is no longer your disco – it’s a crime scene.’

Taking Frightfest back to the 70s is director Renaud Gauthier’s Discopath, a mash-up of music and violence set in Montreal.

In a true piece of horror/giallo quirky genius, the story tells the tale of Manhattan cook Duane Lewis, who just happens to become a murderous psychopath whenever he hears music, most notably disco of course.

Lewis decides to decamp to Canada, only to turn the local Seventh Heaven nightclub into a splatter disco inferno.

The killer doesn’t have it all his own way though, tracked by both local cops and a detective from back in New York that knows his secret.

The trailer promises plenty of retro fashion, as well as some tasty violence, and the whole thing looks pretty enjoyable.

Jeremie Earp takes on the role of Lewis, with the likes of Francois Aubin and Christian Paul also starring.

Discopath screens at Frightfest Halloween on October 26.
