Deep Shock (2017)
by Davide Melini

Italian Giallo is ready
to make its return


Director Davide Melini, who other works I have covered here, has released a poster and trailer (see at bottom of page) for his upcoming short due to be released in the summer of 2017 named Deep Shock.

Coming after his other film is released, Lion, Deep Shock according to Davide “attempts to pay tribute to the Italian film genre called “giallo” (thrilling) and the title of this project is inspired by the most famous horror movies of two of the most important Italian directors: Dario Argento (“Deep Red”) and Mario Bava (“Shock”)”.

Sarah can’t completely overcome the deaths of her grandfather and her older sister. The trauma and lack of sleep cause her to embark on a strange journey of apparitions and murders, apparently caused by her mind…
