The Antithesis Francesco Mirabelli

A trailer featuring English subtitles has arrived online for the Italian horror film THE ANTITHESIS, which was directed by Francesco Mirabelli and boasts a score composed by the legendary Claudio Simonetti, the keyboardist for the band Goblin.

Starring Crisula Stafida, Marina Loi, and Nives Gaudioso, the film has the following synopsis: 

An isolated house in the countryside is beset by strange phenomena caused by bizarre temperature surges. Taking the advice of an architect, a young female geologist agrees to spend the night in the mysterious house in an attempt to identify the strange happenings. Once there, she finds herself trapped in a parallel reality… inside a vortex of horror and delirium.

Scripted by Mirabelli, Francesco Basso, and Stefano Ricciardi, THE ANTITHESIS was inspired by the classic films of Dario Argento and Mario Bava, and that influence comes through in the trailer below.

Home Videos will soon be releasing the film in Italy, while the U.S. distribution rights are in the hands of BayView Entertainment, who are planning to release it on DVD on July 17th.

Give the trailer a viewing and see if THE ANTITHESIS looks like a movie you'd like to check out this summer:
