"Italian Giallo is ready to make its return!"


Giallo inspired short 'Deep Shock' in post-production


"Sarah can't completely overcome the deaths of her grandfather and her older sister. The trauma and lack of sleep cause her to embark on a strange journey of apparitions and murders, apparently caused by her mind..."


The short, actually in post-production and announced for this summer, attempts to pay tribute to the Italian film genre called “giallo” (thrilling) and the title of this project is inspired by the most famous horror movies of two of the most important Italian directors: Dario Argento ("Deep Red") and Mario Bava ("Shock").
