Do I smell a resurgence of Italian horror on the horizon? I certainly hope so because it’s been far too long since the Italians have been busy in the horror genre. First time filmmaker Paolo Fazzini is looking to put the boot back on the map with this one, folks. Fingers crossed!
Mad in Italy is a truly disturbing psychological horror movie based on true events about one girl’s ordeal to stay alive at the hands of a young maniac.
The feature film (now in post-production) was produced by the Italian E2=G Productions and represents Fazzini’s first feature film as a director, following his work Hanging Shadows (distributed in USA by Cinema Guild), a documentary that presents an informative historical overview narrated by the Italian masters of horror Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, Ruggero Deodato, Sergio Stivaletti, and many others.
Mad in Italy features a haunting original score by composer Mario Salvucci (Jessicka Rabid by M. Reel, Silent Night Zombie Night by S. Cain) and amazing cinematography by one of the most talented Italian directors of photography Mirco Sgarzi (House of Flesh Mannequins by D. Cristopharo, Orgy of Blood by C. Creepersin).
