JORGE OLG?N DISCUSSES NEXT

Jorge Olgu? who helmed the Fango Video release SANGRE ETERNA (ETERNAL BLOOD) and the slasher film ANGEL NEGRO, gave Fango the scoop about his upcoming opus, CALEUCHE: EL LLAMADO DEL MAR (CALEUCHE: THE CALL OF THE SEA), which he's getting ready to roll early next year. For Olguin, it all began with his deep love for the films of John Carpenter.

'As a child, I rented THE FOG on video, and I was totally blown away by it,' Olgu?tells Fango. 'Then, at school, I had to read a Chilean novel that told the tale of a ghost ship that traveled through the fog in the south of Chile. I was fascinated by the material and wanted to know more about this supposedly real story. It became more and more fascinating as I dug up more information.'

As a result of that growing interest over the years, Olgu?is now in preproduction on the movie, with Leonor (BLADE II) Varela on board as star and co-producer. Varela will play Isabel, a biologist who travels to the Chilean island of Chilo?in the south of the country, where her family comes from. Once there, she finds out about the legend of the Caleuche, a ghost ship whose crew consists of wizards and spirits of castaway sailors. She also discovers the dark secret that links her family to the ship.

The film's basis on a traditional horror legend is defining Olgu?s approach to the material. 'It won't be exactly bloody,' he says, 'but more of a classic horror tale, full of atmosphere. Mario Bava is the dark light leading my way, so it will be really spooky. It will also be full of surprises.' One of the director's key challenges will be filming on the sea, which is always complicated, but especially if you're shooting in Chilo?'It's a very wintry place, and the weather can really surprise you,' he says. 'Shooting in the rainy season would have been logistical and financial suicide. But the effort will be worth it, because of the impressive architecture of the place and its natural overall beauty. So we'll probably shoot in our spring and summer, as soon as the weather situation becomes controllable.'

Even if the climate has delayed the start of production, the financial elements are all falling into place. With local backing (Olgu?and Varela are associated with the Chilean company Chilefilms) already settled and the possibility of taking on a foreign co-producer (most likely from Spain or Los Angeles), the director is very confident about this project. 'I want the rest of the world to get to know one of the most extraordinary myths of South America,' he says. 'I want to make a movie with the quality this legend deserves.'
