The Latest on Dante Tomaselli's 'Torture Chamber'

January 19, 2009 It seems like forever since there was a Dante Tomaselli movie. That's because "Satan's Playground" came out several years ago and his oft-mentioned "The Ocean" didn't get the financing it needed.

But "Torture Chamber" is happening -- and from the sounds of it, the film will be vintage Tomaselli. The New York director recently spoke to HorrorNews.net about the production, and here's what he had to say:

It has an all encompassing sense of gloom throughout. Children are not what they seem. A crumbling abandoned castle with an underground medieval torture chamber is the film's main setting. Cobwebbed catacombs ...mysterious trapdoors...eerie dungeon imagery galore. To anchor the psychedelia, there's a small New England town called Smithville. The residents are disappearing.

At the core is a religious family in deep psychic pain. I illustrate family
sickness here. Strip away all the horror trappings...and it's a twisted
family psychodrama. The picture will be filled with electric blue and red tones and a kind of hazy celestial white...Lots of refracted light, fog choked landscapes...This will be my goriest film. An important visual motif in TORTURE CHAMBER is the image of flickering flames. This is a film about eternal damnation. Inspired by The Exorcist, Halloween, and my own nightmares, TORTURE CHAMBER aspires to be one of the most frightening horror films in recent memory.

Sounds very Tomaselli-esque. If you haven't seen this filmmakers other works, you owe it to yourself to do so -- especially his first film, "Desecration". From the looks of it, this film is going to outdo "Desecration."

Here is some production art that Tomaselli passed along -- basically the design for the dungeon.







The bottom image is of the lowest level of the dungeon. "The bed of nails matches up with the trap door in the dungeon... and the iron gate matches up with what is supposed to be the same gate in the torture chamber."

Details & Art for Torture Chamber
Posted By : Goon, Friday Jan,30
Filed Under : Indie Horror,


Today Dante Tomaselli contacted me and let me know that he had just done an interview with HorrorNews.net. Within the interview he revealed quite a few new details about his upcoming film Torture Chamber which has been in pre-production for quite some time now.

"It has an all encompassing sense of gloom throughout. Children are not what they seem. A crumbling abandoned castle with an underground medieval torture chamber is the film's main setting. Cobwebbed catacombs ...mysterious trapdoors...eerie dungeon imagery galore. To anchor the psychedelia, there's a small New England town called Smithville. The residents are disappearing.

"At the core is a religious family in deep psychic pain. I illustrate family sickness here. Strip away all the horror trappings...and it's a twisted family psychodrama. The picture will be filled with electric blue and red tones and a kind of hazy celestial white...Lots of refracted light, fog choked landscapes...This will be my goriest film. An important visual motif in TORTURE CHAMBER is the image of flickering flames. This is a film about eternal damnation. Inspired by The Exorcist, Halloween, and my own nightmares, TORTURE CHAMBER aspires to be one of the most frightening horror films in recent memory."

Tomaselli is very well known for his psychedellic aproach to his films. Judging from this description it looks like this one won't be any different. In addition to this he passed a long some nice artwork for the film as well. Check those out below and be sure to keep it here for more.
