DEEP SHOCK from Davide Melini - Italian Horror is Ready for the New Giallo, Crowdfunding to Begin Soon!

With Italian Horror Week preparation in full swing, we've come across some truly exciting news from a dear friend who has been featured in our first two weeks. Davide Melini has been a great friend to this site and to me personally over the last couple of years. He's introduced me around to the new Italian Horror wave of filmmakers trying to crack the nut and return horror to Italia. It's been tremendous. With that in mind, I have some exciting news today revolving around Melini's upcoming production, DEEP SHOCK!

From Melini on the basic concept of Deep Shock:

"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..."

Her worst nightmare has become a reality...

Italian Giallo is ready to make its return!

Davide assures us that this production is paying homage to some of the great Gialli from Mario Bava and Dario Argento, specifically Shock and Deep Red respectively. If he delivers then the newest wave of Italian Horror can truly see the resurgence it deserves. With the Giallo subgenre rising from several different European countries in recent years, this would be the inevitable and natural outcome to a great movement in cinema. 

Also, casting appears to be complete. To see John Taylor in this lineup is extremely exciting for me considering I just had the opportunity to visit with him in The Birthday. He's a tremendous force. Some of the other names are not as familiar with me, but I can't wait to make their acquaintance. Details below:
