Fotocomics Productions sent along some exclusive photos from
its upcoming supernatural thriller THE GHOSTMAKER, directed by film concept
artist Mauro Borelli. Check out the pics and comments from Borrelli and
producer Ed Polgardy after the jump.
THE GHOSTMAKER follows a group of college friends as they
discover a 15th-century mechanical coffin that allows them to experience the
world as ghosts. Originally titled BOX OF SHADOWS, the movie stars J. Walter
Holland, Jared Grey and Aaron Dean Eisenberg (left to right in 2nd photo
below), Liz Fenning (3rd photo with Holland) and Domiziano Arcangel. Also
pictured here is one of the film’s primary villains, a mechanical incarnation
of the Grim Reaper. “Ed and I have been big fans of FANGORIA since we were
kids,” Borrelli says. “So when Michael Gingold asked us to send some exclusive
images, I quickly gathered these never-before-seen pictures from our files.”
“We worked long and hard to give genre fans something
interesting and unique on screen,” Polgardy tells us. “And that wasn’t easy for
an effects movie on a modest budget. There are over 300 visual-effects shots in
the picture, and we wanted to maintain the high level of excellence that Mauro
is known for in his concept work on bigger-budgeted films.” Among Borrelli’s
credits in that capacity are BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA, SLEEPY HOLLOW, PLANET OF
THE APES, the second and third PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN movies, THE WOLFMAN and
the upcoming DARK SHADOWS. Polgardy has been a producer and 2nd-unit director
on such fright features as Robert Hall’s LAID TO REST and Darin Scott’s DARK
“We’re proud of what we accomplished in this movie,” Polgardy
says. “Charles Bornstein, editor on John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN and THE FOG, cut
THE GHOSTMAKER, and Christopher Young, who has scored numerous seminal horror
films including HELLRAISER and THE GRUDGE, composed our main theme and coffin
music. The film is something I think Fango readers will enjoy.” Check out THE
GHOSTMAKER’s trailer below the photos.
