Berlin Horror Story: Yellow the Movie
by James Glazebrook
We love horror, and we love Berlin, so we were thrilled to hear that director Ryan Haysom has chosen the German capital as the location of his new short film Yellow. We’ve been watching (through our fingers) as Haysom and his talented team film, and crowd-fund, what promises to be a creepy, shocking horror noir. Scroll down to see the first of a series of skin-crawling trailers and to read the director’s synopsis, or visit Yellow – The Movie for a behind-the-scenes peek at this Giallo update. Be afraid, be very afraid.
Yellow is a 15 minute + short film, written and directed by Italian horror fan Ryan Haysom.
It is a horror noir set very loosely in the 1980′s, it takes place in the capital of Germany, Berlin. The film follows a reclusive man as he obsesses over finding a serial killer who is slaying women across the city. The film deals with themes of sexual obsession and identity, what is reality, are we awake or asleep?
Yellow is also a Giallo film – the peculiar thriller horror genre that exploded in 1970s Italy. I love everything about the Italian horror genre, and the key Giallo films that have influenced Yellow are, Dario Argento’s Profondo Rosso, Aldo Lado’s Who Saw Her Die, Lucio Fulci’s The New York Ripper, and Sergio Martino’s Torso. The original Gialli are not the only films that have influenced the production, and I will be doing small posts on the key films that have moulded the look of Yellow.
The film is already partly financed, we have shot roughly 3 minutes of the film already, and we’re going to be looking at you for the rest of the financing. If you love horror, and want to see a new Giallo film made, then this is your chance to get your black leather gloves on!
Check out Yellow – The Movie for news on how you can help with the financing of this film. It all begins soon!
Thanks, Team Yellow x
