Topic: The Book

I just saw this on the main page here: http://www.horror-movies.ca/2013/11/the … -the-book/

It's planned to be an anthology film featuring many of the classic Italian horror directors, and featuring a soundtrack from Claudio Simonetti. They are trying to raise money on Idiegogo, and the contributors can get some pretty damn cool prizes.

Re: The Book

Interesting idea, but no Argento, Fulci or Bava stuff?  Nah.

Re: The Book

Well Fulci and Bava are dead, so they are nixed (unless you are refering Lamberto Bava, who is included), but yeah I was a little disappointed that Argento was not included, nonetheless I love the line-up.

Re: The Book

I'll check it out for L. Bava, but I'm not much a fan of the others.  Too bad neither Argento nor Soavi are involved.

Re: The Book

Very interesting set up and DAMN GOBLIN, wooo yes!!!

But yeah, no Argento??? Come on now, it's ridiculous to do a thing about Italian masters without putting the best of them all in there, please, WTF???

Re: The Book

Good call on Soavi, the few horror flicks he made were masterpieces. Loved the Church, Cemetery Man and Stagefright. I think he moved away from horror in general though.

I figure Argento may have been just a little too big of a name for this flick, could probably afford 4-5 of the other directors for one Argento (though it would probably have been worth it).

Yeah but they shouldn't name the thing Masters without him in there. Mwahahaha

Re: The Book

They decided to shorten it from it's original tagline; Horror Masters of Mediocrity!. It just didn't have quite the same ring.
