Coming from the mind of Davide Melini (The Sweet Hand of the White Rose) comes the the disturbing looking short LION. Currently in post production the movie involves a family on the brink dealing with an unspeakable horror. There are some pretty explosive names attached to the project including Juanma Postigo (candidate at the “Goya Awards 2016” for his job on the feature film “El violín de Piedra”) and of course Melini who has worked on such dealings as Penny Dreadful and Dario Argento’s “Mother of Tears. LION will be released on Halloween and the studio has a poster and teaser to see. Check them out ahead and look for more updates on LION in the near future.
“An isolated chalet in a snowy forest… A man blinded by alcohol… A woman unable to rebel… And an 8-year-old child troubled and dark… The silent night is broken with cries… the start of a terrible nightmare…”
