Italian Giallo is ready to make its return in Davide Melini’s film, DEEP SHOCK. Deep Shock attempts to pay tribute to the Italian film genre called giallo, as this year marks its 50th anniversary. The title of this project is inspired by the most famous horror movies of two of the most important Italian directors: Dario Argento’s “Deep Red” and Mario Bava’s “Shock”.
Today, director Davide Melini launches an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise 3000 Euros for the movie to pay for production and post-production costs, equipment, make-up and prosthetic FX, travel and catering.
In return for donations to the movie, pledgers can receive anything from a “thank you” credit to t-shirts and even a Giallo black glove and razor! How very apt for the genre fan! 😉
