Another sad news - Martin Landau, Oscar winner for his role as Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's ED WOOD (1994) passed away today at the age of 89. Sadly, two legends Landau and Romero are now gone, back to back. Such a scary feeling, one day you here and the next day you are not. Martin Landau starred in many films and in a few other horror films such as Without Warning (1980), Alone in the Dark (1982) and many others. May Mr. Landau Rest in Peace - we will miss you.

Davide Melini upcoming short film DEEP SHOCK, looks visually stunning and fiercely beautiful. Mr. Melini is ready to strike us with a new masterpiece. The film is in post production now, due out this Summer. The film pays tribute to "giallo" (thriller, mystery, horror noted for psychological themes of madness, alienation, paranoia and sexuality). The title Deep Shock pays tribute to the horror film titles from the legendary Italian film directors Mario Bava and Dario Argento. I mentioned this before here on EYEPUS - Davide Melini has the eye of what is true giallo and he falls in the realms of the legendary Italian horror filmmakers such as Bava, Argento, and Fulci. Check out his teaser trailer DEEP SHOCK.
