Cathedrals will fall, the river will run red... and THE BIRD will be SLAUGHTERED!

Lion

An isolated chalet in a snowy forest… A man blinded by alcohol… A woman unable to rebel… And an 8-year-old child troubled and dark… The silent night is broken with cries… the start of a terrible nightmare…

Lion is a new short horror film from Davide Melini (Assistant Director on Dario Argento’s Mother of Tears: The Third Mother and Penny Dreadful), currently in post-production and scheduled for a Halloween release.

lion-official-poster-lqMelini (whose short film The Sweet Hand of the White Rose was an official selection at the Donatello Awards 2011) has managed to assemble a mind-boggling crew for his latest project, including Producer Luca Vannella (Thor, Harry Potter, Apocalypto, Heart of the Sea), Alexis Continente (Thor, Penny Dreadful), Vincenzo Mastrantonio (Titanic, Moulin Rouge, The Passion of Christ, Romeo + Juliet), Bobby Holland (The Dark Knight Rises, Game of Thrones, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, 007 – Quantum of Solace), Ferdinando Merolla (Troy, Gangs of New York, Hannibal Rising) and Roberto Paglialunga.

Starring Pedro Sánchez, Michael Segal (Colour from the Dark, Anger of the Dead) and Tania Mercader, Lion remains pretty much under wraps for the time being, but below are some important links where you can do some digging yourselves. There’s also an exclusive trailer for you lucky, lucky monsters.

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish!

Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
