The Wicked Gift – Roberto D’Antona

by on Sep.28, 2017, under Other Musings

Roberto D’Antona is a fresh Italian director who’s intention is to bring the greatness of legacy Italian horror back to the screen through his vision, inspired by the greats, but also a host of world cinema horror legends too. Early influence comes from Sam Raimi and Carpenter, but D’Antona also recognises Eggers, Wan and Whannell as peers of influence.

The Wicked Gift is a phycological horror, ghost story combo. What’s in the mind? What is real? Nightmares, hauntings and a rollercoaster into the darkness of a very sinister past. Ethan suffers with insomnia and a long history of nightmares. With support from his friend, he visits a medium, who opens the doorway to his own haunted mind and the awareness to a horror deep inside.

This is exactly the kind of thing we love here at 365. Modern Italian with a homage to whats come before, but also inspired by international current productions. This sounds great.

Check out the facebook page for more details and keep your eye out for cinema screenings from early December.

Cinematography looks beautiful by Stefano Pollastro, whilst the score is supplied by Aurora Rochez. Both complimenting D’Antona’s Direction. Produced by Alessandro Rossi, Annamaria Lorusso and D’Antona and featuring a cast from the indie international circuits, Alice Viganò, David White, Mirko D’Antona, Andrea Milan and Michael Segal.

We’ll be reporting more on this talent, but for now, check out the trailer:-
