Producers David Bond and Manda Manuel present: THE BOOK. Assembling the finest living Italian filmmakers, 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.
If you have ever wanted to see a film that includes Lamberto Bava, Umberto Lenzi, Ruggero Deodato, Aldo Lado, Sergio Martino and many more than this may be the project for you. Each director will be given the opportunity to showcase their own personal vision of Rome, spread across a dozen episodes. Each segment in this feature film will contain a unique blend of macabre thriller, horror and the fantastic; all delivered with the unique style and method of the director in question.
Did I mention the entire thing will be scored by Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin? Yea, that master of the Italian synth himself is on board. This is one major project that they are trying to get off the ground on indiegogo. Why do these guys have to go to indiegogo? I have no idea. But I’d rather see this get made than another found footage or home invasion film anytime. So check it out and give what you can.
