Euro Thriller inspired by the work of Dario Argento
Italian Title: COME UNA CRISALIDE
director: Luigi Pastore
starring: Sharon Alessandri · Simona Oliverio · Anna Morosetti
· Fabio Giovannini · Federica Carpico
is an Italian-made
horror project inspired by the work of Dario Argento. It is the debut
film directed by Luigi Pastore who also wrote the screenplay in collaboration
with Antonio Tentori (the scripter who penned Lucio Fulci's CAT
IN THE BRAIN). Two popular Argento alumni also contribute to
the production: Claudio Simonetti does the music while the special effects
are expertly handled by Sergio Stivaletti.
The film opens with a psychoanalytic session. An analyst suggests that
her client gets help from a specialized clinic. But the advice has the
opposite effect, unleashing a deep-rooted madness in the troubled patient.
His mind has snapped and he is driven to take up killing once more,
starting with the female doctor. After getting rid of the psychologist's
body, he's encouraged by how good he feels and decides to carry on the
new 'therapy.' Believing that he has learned the secret to metamorphosis,
the man is now devoted to becoming a sadistic serial killer.
