Art & Trailer for Bessoni's Imago Mortis





Trailer and poster for Imago Mortis!It is said that, back in the days before photography was a mainstay of the world at large, early practitioners of the art attempted to use a form of it to capture human souls. Of course, the only time the soul could be captured was when it was leaving its host body, and the only way that could happen is death, so said practitioners were not what one would call well regarded.

Such is the storyline of Imago Mortis, the new feature from Stefano Bessoni. An early draft of the script was penned by Dust Devil/Hardware mastermind Richard Stanley, and the final version was written by Luis Berdejo, who wrote REC and directed the upcoming Kevin Costner horror film The New Daughter. I would call that cred, wouldn't you?

On your right is the first poster for the film, and a trailer for Imago Mortis has finally surfaced online. Head over to Twitch Film to check it out along with a TV spot. I recommend you dig it, as it should help to clear out all the joy you’re being smacked with because of the holidays.

That's one of the coolest posters I've seen in a while, and the concept is great. Mary Roach wrote a great section in her book Spook about the history of the study of the soul and taking images and weighing bodies and such, fascinating stuff.
