Last Night In Soho follows Eloise, a young woman with a passion for fashion design and a strange sixth sense, mysteriously finds herself transported back in time to 1966 London in the body of her idol, a singer named Sandie.
While in Sandie’s body, she enters into a romantic relationship; but then, she begins to realize that the glamour of 1960s London is not what it appears to be and the past and present seem to fall apart with horrifying consequences.
Then she catches a taxi. The lecherous driver bears more than a passing resemblance to John Worboys, the “black cab rapist”.
This psychological horror is inspired by other great British horror films, like Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion.
Here’s the trailer:
