News Round-up Week Ending 20 January 2017

Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre Independent Italiand news that caught our eye during the last week …

Cruel-summerBritish genre film Cruel Summer set for DVD and VOD release

Cruel Summer is the harrowing story of a group of three young people, led by an out-of-control boy with a thirst for violent revenge, Nicholas, pursuing another young man with autism through the English countryside. Julia and Calvin, his two companions, must decide whether to go along with his violent plans or try to stop him.

The film was well received at last year’s Frightfest, and the tale is said to have an effect on the viewer long after the film ends. You can take a look at the trailer below.


Face-of-FourNew independent short, Face of Four, one to look out for in 2017

Described as a ‘minimalist Saw, with the suspense of Hitchcock,’ Face of Four is the story of a man whose fate rests on the roll of a dice. Written and directed by Alexander Azzi, a photographer, videographer and musician, it won the Narrative Film award at the International Film Awards in Encino, California. Take a look at the trailer below.


Crystal Lake Publishing announces two new releases

The Final Reconciliation by Todd Keisling will be released on 3 February and finds lead guitarist Aidan Cross as the band’s soul survivor after an accident at a concert, after his band produce an album that is predicted to change the face of heavy metal forever. Cross refuses to talk about the circumstances of his bandmates’ deaths until he finally agrees to an interview to put all the rumours to bed. At this point things start to get weird. Said to be inspired by Lovecraft, Barron and other weird fiction greats, this should be one to look out for.

Coming on 10 March is Aletheia by J S Brevekelaar, the story of a lake town where there is a collective loss of memory. There’s an island on the lake, but no-one seems able to remember where it is. Connections are made to disappearances and also to a monster, lurking in the depths.

This is Horror will bring you more on these new releases in the near future.
