New poster and news on the upcoming 'Deep Shock'

Currently in pre-production, as of November 21st last year, with a view to release in 2014, is Italian director Davide Melini's Deep Shock, and as you can see above I have the new poster to share with you. It was created by Cristina Gomez Rosales, and definitely has that old-school Italian vibe to it. Melini has previously directed the giallo-inspired shorts The Puzzle and The Sweet Hand of the White Rose shorts, of which you can check out both in their entirety after the break.
Synopsis: "Sarah can’t completely overcome the deaths of her grandfather and her older sister. The trauma and lack of sleep cause her to embark on a strange journey of apparitions and murders, apparently caused by her mind..."

Tagline: "Her worst nightmare has become a reality."

Italian Giallo is ready to make its return!!!

Deep Shock will be produced by Fabel Aguilera and Melini, in collaboration with Marta Pavon's Kai Visualisations, with shooting to take place in the picturesque town of Malaga, Spain. Music will be provided by Visioni Gotiche and a teaser trailer is planned for March/April time.

Also set to work on Deep Shock are : 

Maikel Ramírez (Executive Producer)
Juan Luis Moreno Somé (1st Assistant Director)
José Antonio Crespillo (Cinematographer)
Fernando Moleón (Steadycam Operator)
Cristina Gómez Rosales (Graphic Designer)

Melini had this to say about his plans for Deep Shock

I’d like to pay homage to the Italian “giallo” genre, that will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2014. The first "giallo" film ever was "The Girl Who Knew too Much" (1963), directed by Mario Bava. But the same director shot another film entitled "Blood and Black Lace" one year later, where the emblematic element of the "giallo" was introduced: the masked murderer with a shiny weapon in his black-leather-gloved hand. I want to bring back some classic 60′s and 70′s “giallo” film ideas, using new technology. The title of "Deep Shock" is a homages to Dario Argento's "Deep Red" and for Mario Bava’s "Shock".
