Good news, Dario Argento fanatics: the Italian master of the macabre's latest horror film, Dark Glasses, is getting a limited theatrical release this October! If you've ever had the chance to see Argento's work on the big screen, then you don't need to be told that this news is worth getting excited about.
The film (which is both directed and written by Argento) stars Ilenia Pastorelli, Andrea Zhang and Asia Argento, and is described thusly in the press release that just landed in our inbox:
In Dark Glasses, an eclipse blackens the skies on a hot summer day in Rome – a harbinger of the darkness that will envelop Diana (Pastorelli) when a serial killer chooses her as prey. Fleeing her predator, the young escort crashes her car and loses her sight. She emerges from the initial shock determined to fight for her life, but she is no longer alone. Defending her and acting as her eyes is a little boy, Chin (Zhang), who survived the car accident. But the killer won't give up his victim. Who will be saved?
Theatrical screenings of Dark Glasses kick off on Friday, October 7 at the IFC Center in New York and at the Laemmle Glendale in Los Angeles. The film will then hit Shudder on Thursday, October 13, and additional theaters (to be announced later) will also have screenings beginning on Friday, October 14.
Got all that? Good. We'll see ya there!
