Italian production company Idf, owned by actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta (Il Postino) has begun principal photography on Federico Zampaglione’s eagerly-awaited third feature, Tulpa.

Award-winning actress Claudia Gerini, who has just completed a leading role as Marie Cecile in Christopher Smith’s TV adaptation of Labyrinth, stars as Lisa Boeri, a respectable and upwardly mobile businesswoman who, by night, frequents the notorious sex club ‘Tulpa’ in search of dangerous forms of pleasure. When her lovers start getting murdered in horrible ways, to avoid a personal scandal, she tries to deal with it herself with truly nightmare consequences. Tulpa also stars Michele Placido (Romanzo Criminale), one of Italy’s most renowned actors/directors, alongside Nuot Arquint (Shadow) and Michela Cescon (Sacred Heart).

Federico, who is described as Italy’s Rob Zombie, said today:

I’m very excited to start shooting Tulpa, but I’m aware it’s a very difficult film to make, »
