A message from director Davide Melini:
Today I’m proud to introduce you to my new short film DEEP SHOCK! <Official trailer below>
The short, actually in post-production and announced for this summer (after my other short film, LION), attempts to pay tribute to Italian film genre “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).
