Masters of Italian Horror Join Forces for Anthology 'The Book'

25 November 2013 10:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Thanks to films like V/H/S and ABCs of Death, it's becoming increasingly popular for genre filmmakers to join forces for a common cause.  That collaborative tradition is set to continue with The Book, a new horror anthology in the works that brings together the biggest names in Italian genre cinema.  We're talking guys like Ruggero Deodato, Sergio Martino and Lamberto Bava, the creative forces behind Italian horror gems like Cannibal Holocaust, Torso and Demons.  What's that?  Your interest is piqued?  I thought you might feel that way!

Set to be written by Dardano Sacchetti (The Beyond, Demons), The Book will feature twelve separate tales of terror centered around Rome, with each filmmaker given the freedom to bring the stories to life any way they see fit.  All twelve shorts will then be joined together to comprise one collaborative effort, the works of some of Italy's finest filmmakers uniting »

31 Days of Horror: 100 Greatest Horror Films: Top 100

31 October 2013 9:24 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

Come Back Tonight To See My List Of The 200 Best!

****

Special Mention:

Wait until Dark

Directed by Terence Young

Written by Robert Carrington

USA, 1967

'Demons 2' (1986) Review

29 April 2013 5:09 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

'Demons 2' (1986) Review

Directed By: Lamberto Bava

Written By: Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, Franco Ferrini, Dardano Sacchetti

Starring: David Edwin Knight (George), Nancy Brilli (Hannah), Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni (Sally Day), Bobby Rhodes (Hank), Asia Argento (Ingrid Haller), Virginia Bryant (Mary the Prostitute), Anita Bartolucci (Woman with Dog), Antonio Cantafora (Ingrid’s Father), Luisa Passega (Helga), Davide Marotta (Demon Tommy), Marco Vivio (Tommy), Michele Mirabella (Hooker’s Client), Lorenzo Gioielli (Jake), Lino Salemme (Security Guard), Maria Chiara Sasso (Ulla)

If you feel Demons (1985) was a good movie, you will certainly be entertained by its sequel. “Demons 2” is just as over the top as the original with plenty of gore and thrills. Lamberto Bava does a good job carrying a similar plot over from the first film in a slightly different setting for this one. Argento and Bava make a good film duo »

'Demons' (1985) Review

9 April 2013 11:40 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Review by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

Demons” (1985)

Directed By: Lamberto Bava

Written By: Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, Franco Ferrini, Dardano Sacchetti

Starring: Urbano Barberini (George), Natasha Hovey (Cheryl), Karl Zinny (Ken), Fiore Argento (Hannah), Paola Cozzo (Kathy), Fabiola Toledo (Carmen), Nicoletta Elmi (Ingrid), Stelio Candelli (Frank), Nicole Tessier (Ruth) Geretta Geretta (Rosemary), Bobby Rhodes (Tony), Guidi Baldi (Tommy), Bettini Ciampolini (Nina), Giuseppe Mauro Cruciano (Hot Dog), Sally Day (Liz)

Demons” is one of the definitive horror movies for any fan of Italian horror films. It was one of the first Italian films I ever watched several years ago and instantly became one of my favorites. It’s not perfect by any means but I don’t think that was the intention. The movie makes up for any flaws with its superb practical effects that constantly keeps the story moving in its speedy pace.

The movie takes place primarily inside a movie theater in Berlin. »

Red-band, Nsfw trailer: New giallo film “Tulpa”

22 January 2013 8:32 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Directed by Federico Zampaglione from a script he wrote with Giacomo Gensini, based on a story by veteran Italo-horror scribe Dardano Sacchetti, Tulpa stars Claudia Gerini as Lisa, a businesswoman who leads a secret night life of sexual exploration and experimentation, centered on the titular nightclub.

Tulpa, which we first reported on here, screened last year at London’s FrightFest in not-quite-completed form. “We knew what worked in the genre,” Zampaglione says, “but we were also aware of its shortcomings, and that is why we test-screened a rough cut of the film to an audience at Frightfest. »
