‘A Classic Horror Story’ Will Scare You Shitless
Netflix is hyping up its latest horror movie A Classic Horror Story big time. The creepy flick is being described by the streaming giant as Midsommar meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Considering Ari Aster’s Misommar is arguably the best horror of the past decade and Chainsaw Massacre is an absolute classic, this film has big shoes to fill.
Co-directed by youngsters Roberto De Feo and Paolo Strippoli, the film appears to be very much inspired by Italian horror legends Dario Argento and Mario Bava, but with a modern take.
The teaser trailer doesn’t give much away. As a pleasant Italian song plays, we see a cabin in the woods, a close-up of a stuffed deer head, and then some quick flashes of torture. It’s all very ominous and foreboding. The titles of the film are also very 70s, with A Classic Horror Story written in big, bold red that begins to bleed.
No official synopsis has been released, but according to Variety, the film centers on five strangers who are carpooling together. When they get into an accident trying to avoid a dead animal carcass on the road, they wake up in the middle of a forest next to an eerie cottage. They soon find out the cottage is home to a cult who aren’t that welcoming.
The ensemble cast includes Francesco Russo, Peppino Mazzotta, Yulia Sobol, Will Merrick, Alida Baldari Calabria Cristina Donadio (Gomorrah) and Matilda Lutz (Rings).
A Classic Horror Story will arrive on Netflix on July 14.
