Acclaimed Horror Short OUT OF THE DEPTHS Out Now
Following its screening at Cannes Film Festival’s edgy Short Film Corner, OUT OF THE DEPTHS (DAL PROFONDO) is a short horror film from Italy, recalling the foreboding films of ’70s-era Roman Polanski and the literary works of Lovecraft, Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe.
After Elena and Andrea, a young married couple, arrive at their newly bought country house – a sumptuously faded villa in the lush Italian countryside — they notice a disturbing atmosphere pervading the old mansion, upsetting her, but bewitching him. Day after day, Andrea explores the building and the surrounding wood, behaving more and more oddly. Elena doesn’t understand what’s going on: Andrea seems to establish a symbiotic connection with the mansion and lets his mind wander, upsetting and frightening his wife. Something terrible is lurking under the ancient foundations, something that will affect them more than they could ever imagine…
