Masters of Italian Horror Join Forces for Anthology 'The Book'


The Book

Thanks to films like V/H/S and ABCs of Death, it's becoming increasingly popular for genre filmmakers to join forces for a common cause.  That collaborative tradition is set to continue with The Book, a new horror anthology in the works that brings together the biggest names in Italian genre cinema.  We're talking guys like Ruggero Deodato, Sergio Martino and Lamberto Bava, the creative forces behind Italian horror gems like Cannibal Holocaust, Torso and Demons.  What's that?  Your interest is piqued?  I thought you might feel that way!

Set to be written by Dardano Sacchetti (The Beyond, Demons), The Book will feature twelve separate tales of terror centered around Rome, with each filmmaker given the freedom to bring the stories to life any way they see fit.  All twelve shorts will then be joined together to comprise one collaborative effort, the works of some of Italy's finest filmmakers uniting as one for the first time ever.  Just to make the deal even sweeter, the film will be scored by Goblin, who are of course known for creating some of the most iconic sounds in Italian horror history.

Check out the teaser trailer below, which highlights all the filmmakers that are confirmed for this most epic of projects, and learn more about it over on The Book's Facebook page!
