If you’re a fan of esoteric low-budget horror and you haven’t heard of Dante Tomaselli, then shame on you, my friend. Shame on you. Although his endeavors are decidedly odd, all of them have unnerved me on one level or another. His 2002 effort “Horror” remains my favorite; the atmosphere is unrelentingly creepy, though I can’t really put my finger on why. The trailer for Tomaselli’s latest genre flick “Torture Chamber” gives me the same feeling, and I’m anxious to give it a whirl. We don’t get movies from this guy often enough, so every upcoming release is always a reason for a little excitement.
Prepare your mind with this handy synopsis:
Ominous chiller about an unholy bond between a mother and her two sons. A Catholic priest, devoted to saving his family, tries to cure his deranged younger brother — but 13-year-old Jimmy Morgan is possessed by an evil too powerful to be exorcised by any religion. After escaping from a mental institution, Jimmy is back with a vengeance — and an army of children who follow his every murderous desire. The New England town trembles in fear as the youths attack and abduct its residents — innocent and guilty alike — dragging their victims to an abandoned castle and subjecting them to grisly torments deep within its underground tunnels. Those who discover the terrible secret behind the disappearances and deaths don’t live long enough to tell it. The teacher, the doctor, even Jimmy’s own brother and mother, will all confront their fates in the Torture Chamber.
“Torture Chamber”, which stars Vincent Pastore, Christie Sanford, Lynn Lowry, and Carmen LoPorto, should (hopefully) arrive sometime this year. Stay up-to-date with the flick by paying frequent visits to the official Facebook page.
