HANGING SHADOWS – PERSPECTIVES ON ITALIAN HORROR CINEMA

DVD OUT NOW!

Now it’s possible to discover all the secrets of the horror cinema narrated by the italian masters of horror.

Finally on DVD everybody can see HANGING SHADOWS – PERSPECTIVES ON ITALIAN HORROR CINEMA, a documentary directed by Paolo Fazzini. A precious document shot and edited with great sensibility in which we can see the most important directors, screenwriters and professionals of the Italian Horror Cinema.

“Italian terror movies, and more generally speaking genre cinema, no longer exist in Italy,” said the director Paolo Fazzini, “so I had the feeling that I wanted to put this state of affairs on record. We can think of the documentary as a kind of physical and psychological journey in search of directors, screenwriters and critics, at times filmed at their workplace. With their skill and intuition these directors have been able to transpose our fears onto screens all over the world.”

HANGING SHADOWS presents an informative historical overview of the giallo genre, exploring its genesis and chronicling the films, directors, and personalities that made up its golden age. Featuring interviews with Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava (director and son of Mario Bava), Antonella Fulci (daughter of director Lucio Fulci), Franco Ferrini (co-writer of Sergio Leone's Once upon a time in America and numerous Argento films), Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust), Giannetto De Rossi (make-up artist on Fulci's films), and many others.

Hanging Shadows is a fascinating study of a group of films and filmmakers that redefined the horror genre and forever changed the way we think of horror films. 60 minutes (with subtitles in english) of full immersion with the Masters of Italian horror!

“Film school is a waste of money when you can learn about film history by watching documentaries such as this.” (The coroner’s report)
“The documentary situates Italian horror films in terms of the work of other Italian directors and Italian film history: There is thus a sense of learning from earlier directors.” (Educational Media Reviews)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
