“We have managed to curate an incredibly high-level of production value segments for this first instalment of the ‘A Night of Horror Volume 1’ anthology. I am super-impressed with the quality, but also the variety on display, ranging from the hilariously macabre to the seriously dark and unsettling - all the ingredients for a good 90 minutes of chills and entertainment. I reckon horror fans familiar with recent anthologies will find this one a breath of fresh air” said Deadhouse Films’ Enzo Tedeschi.
