“The Book” marks the collaborative return of the Italian Horror & Giallo masters Lamberto Bava, Antonio Bido, Enzo G. Castellari, Luigi Cozzi, Alberto De Martino, Ruggero Deodato, Aldo Lado, Umberto Lenzi, Edoardo Margheriti, Sergio Martino, and Tonino Valerii. I know-it’s insane the shear awesomeness of talent that is coming together for this project. Plus after exploring the Indiegogo site, this isn’t even all “The Book” has going for it-it’s more than enough to get any horror fan excited but there is more in the works for this project that everyone should check out. Twelve individual episodes, each of which is helmed by a master of Italian genre cinema.
“The Book” is a project of unprecedented scale that brings together, for the very first time, the writers, directors, actors, composers and artists behind the finest Italian genre cinema of the past sixty years. This includes the creative forces behind the Giallo movement, Spaghetti Westerns, Eurocrime just to mention a few of the Italian horror subgenres. Following the ambitious extremity of “The Profane Exhibit”, producers DAVID BOND, SERGIO STIVALETTI and MANDA MANUEL have come together to make this insanity a reality. The Facebook page explains it as this, “The project intends to provide these elite creative forces a platform with which they can showcase the dexterity and innovation which brought them initial acclaim. Free of studio constraints, THE BOOK will be Italian genre at its most raw and basic form, with the impetus placed upon recapturing the magic which resonates with so many fans the world over.”
