Frequent readers know I’m an unabashed fan of Italian horror. So when I heard about Eros Bosi’s short film, Evil Selfie, I jumped at the chance to review it. Mr. Bosi has provided us with a trailer. Judging from the trailer, Carpenter’s They Live is an obvious influence and the sinister undertones promise a frightful experience.
Evil Selfie follows a woman named Isabella (Chiara Palombi), a maniac for selfies, who is friends with Fabiano (Eros Bosi) and Mara (Diletta Vindovelli), also selfie maniacs. After a strange mirror is broken, a series of strange events befall the characters. The truth of these events is revealed by the selfies they so frequently take with their mobile phones… Gene Gnocchi, a popular actor on Italian television, is also in the cast.
Evil Selfie is set to premiere on November 21 at the Mario Monicelli Cinema in Narni, Italy – which also happens to be Bosi’s birthday! An English subtitled version is set to drop in the near future.
