Dante Tomaselli’s ‘Torture Chamber’ has finally wrapped and has edged into it’s post-production stages. Website Cathode Ray Misson managed to grab a few words with the director about the movie which managed to shoot in just 19 days.
“19 days. 19 never-ending days…or nights…or mornings. After a while I had no idea what time it was. Filming was intense, sometimes painful, shooting for hours on end in mines and darkened underground tunnels, constantly fighting against the clock. I loved every minute of it. I am electrified now. As you know, as everyone knows, I’ve been foaming-at-the-mouth to create another movie. It’s never easy to get to the point of actually doing it. I am very pleased with the footage. It’s chock full of scare sequences. Torture Chamber has a new horrific energy, more serious and brutal, more shadowy, tactile and frightening.”
“‘Torture Chamber’ is about 13-year-old Jimmy Morgan is possessed by an evil too powerful to be exorcised by any priest. One year after his own brother, Father Mark Morgan, nearly died in the attempt, Jimmy is back with a vengeance—and an army of horribly burned children who follow his every murderous desire. The town of Smithville trembles in fear as Jimmy and his deadly young followers attack and abduct its residents—innocent and guilty alike—dragging their victims to an abandoned castle and subjecting them to grisly torments deep within its catacombs. Those who discover the terrible secret behind the disappearances and deaths don’t live long enough to tell it. The teacher, the doctor, the detective, even Jimmy’s own brother and mother, will all confront their fates in the Torture Chamber.”
The flick stars Vincent Pastore, Ed Neal, Lynn Lowry, Marilyn Burns and Christie Sanford.
