This weekend we received the first word on a new anthology film coming from producer Gabriele Albanesi (The Last House in the Woods, Ubaldo Terzani Horror Show) — Italian Ghost Stories.
The project consists of five segments helmed by a group of young first-time Italian directors as follows:
Ep.1: OFFLINE di Andrea Gagliardi
Ep.2: FIABA DI UN MOSTRO di Stefano Prolli
Ep.3: LA MEDIUM di Roberto Palma
Ep.4: 17 NOVEMBRE di Tommaso Agnese
Ep.5: URLA IN COLLINA di Omar Protani e Marco Farina
The movie’s disturbing “ghost stories” were influenced by the classic Masters of Horror such as Val Lewton, Jacques Tourneur, Robert Wise, and Jack Clayton, but they are narrated in the Italian way and visual style.
Italian Ghost Stories is being filmed entirely with the Red One Camera and stars such young Italian talents as Daniele De Angelis (What the Hell Am I Doing Here?), Primo Reggiani (Melissa P., Kiss Me Again), Laura Gigante (Albakiara) and Maurizio Tesei (Et in terra pax).
Look for the film sometime in 2011. In the meantime check out the trailer and a still from 17 NOVEMBRE below, and for more visit the Italian Ghost Stories Facebook page.
