About the film:

Bruno, an up and coming film composer, has been hired to write the score to a new horror movie. After moving into a secluded villa, life begins to imitate art as a vicious killer starts bumping off anyone and everyone who happens to pay him a visit.

About the filmmaker:

Lamberto Bava is an Italian filmmaker who began his career as an assistant director for his father Mario Bava. His most well-known and commercially successful film was Demons (1985), which received such wide international success that it spawned a sequel which he returned to direct, Demons 2 (1986). Bava made his solo directorial debut with the film Macabre (1980), a horror film loosely based on the events of a real-life murder in New Orleans. This debut film was not a commercial success, leading Bava back into assistant directing for the iconic film Tenebrae (1982), directed by Dario Argento. In 1983, Bava returned to solo directing for the violent mystery-thriller A Blade in the Dark (1983).
