Tomaselli talks Torture
June 16, 2010
By Paul Pritchard
As you are probably aware, Iím a big fan of Dante Tomaselli and the feel he manages to evoke in his films of being trapped in a waking nightmare. Filming for his fourth feature film, Torture Chamber has recently wrapped and he has been talking to The Cathode Ray Mission about it:
Torture Chamber has a new horrific energy, more serious and brutal, more shadowy, tactile and frightening. Even though the budget is low, Torture Chamber has a kind of epic exuberance. I purposely shot the film 2.35:1 so it is very wide and Iím able to feature a bigger canvas.
It feels like a pure horror film to meÖand now that I shot the footage, I know it is. Gothic horror from beginning to endÖI would say itís more colourful and stylised than any of my other films, more energetic. Itís an interior journey. Itís really about peeling back layers of pain and guilt buried deep in the unconscious mind. There are trap doors, mysterious holes, maze-like tunnelsÖEach set-piece leads you to the next. This is a film about eternal damnation. Torture Chamber is an all-out scarefest.
This could well turn out to be the best one yet.
You Will Burn in Hell...
Long Live the Pit!

Great stuff, keep them coming
No one is perfect. However, being Scottish is close enough.
