If you’re looking for a few good creeps while sheltering at home, check out our exclusive debut of Cristian Tomassini’s NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET-themed short IN DREAMS.
Written by Silvio Marotta and produced by Marotta and Beniamino Gelain (also the cinematographer) for Anima Film, IN DREAMS stars Alicia Shortman as Cheyenne, a teenager who finds herself in a frightening nightmare world haunted by Wes Craven’s classic dream-slayer. The independent production boasts feature-level production values, and the director says he and his collaborators put it together “simply because we wanted to pay homage to an era of sensational horror films, full of ideas and energy and with a visual content that has dictated the stylistic features of the genre for decades to come.” The crew also included a set design/costume design/effects team consisting of Alex Baiocchi, Marotta and Francesco Paggin.
