It is always good to see the Italian’s still have the gift of making intriguing, dark and very unsettling horror, and director Gabriele Albanesi’s latest horror looks to follow suit. Titled ‘Ubaldo Terzani Horror Show’, this latest Italian Giallo looks right up my alley, just the kind of horror I really enjoy.
The trailers don’t give much away, and leaves you wanting more and the mystery surrounding exactly what it going on is well crafted and patiently paced. I absolutely adore the colouring in the trailers aswell, looking like Argento’s Suspiria and Inferno days. The music is terrific too! This style of horror can only be produced by the Italian’s, and I predict this film is going to be something very special indeed.
Formerly called In the Mouth of Ubaldo Terzani, Albanesi both writes and directs and has the skilled special effects of Sergio Stivaletti (whom he worked with on his previous film, The Last House in the Woods) to create the bloodshed. Stivaletti is known as the Italian ‘Wizard of Gore’. The film stars Giuseppe Soleri as Alessio Rinaldi, Paolo Sassanelli as Ubaldo Terzani, and Laura Gigante as Sara, Alessio’s girlfriend. It co-stars Stefano Fregni, Antonino Iuorio, Francesco Mastrorilli, and Zsuzsanna Ripli.
Check out the trailer and some images below, and you can find out more on the official Facebook page.
A 25-year-old director, gets the charge from a producer to write the script of his first movie with Ubaldo Terzani, a well-known writer of horror novels. Alessio moves into Terzani’s house to start this collaboration, and a strange relationship of psychological dependence grows between them: Ubaldo Terzani unveils his dark side, and Alessio falls into a state of insanity ruled by the script they are creating and the nightmares he has because of it.
