QUEEN OF BLOOD will have its European premier at the 2014 ITALIAN HORROR FEST in Nettuno, a seaside town in Rome, running from August 4th to 9th. Festival highlights include the presence of legendary polish filmmaker Andrzej Żulawski as the international guest of honor, along with Italian horror and fantasy hero Luigi Cozzi and myself, who will make the journey to host the opening ceremonies and introduce QUEEN OF BLOOD.
Cozzi will be celebrated with a complete career retrospective, spotlighting such gems as CONTAMINATION, STARCRASH and HERCULES, and will appear to discuss each screening. Zulawski will host a very special screening of his brain-melting cult classic POSSESSION and meet his fans to discuss cinema, his own and otherwise. Italian horror legends Dario Argento and Umberto Lenzi are also set to attend.
More IHF films and premieres are to be announced in the next few weeks. See the official Italian Horror Fest site for more details and, if and when in Rome, make sure you drop by the fest! Ciao!
