Horror legend Dario Argento has been away from horror for a while but he’s back and better than ever. That’s right horror fans, Argento is making a new movie! The movie is titled “The Sandman”. It has nothing to do with the graphic novel by the same name though. The synopsis has been released along with the name of one of the stars, who is none other than Iggy Pop.
The Sandman tells the story of Nathan, a young student who struggles to forget the trauma he experienced in childhood from a serial killer called “The Sandman”. Nathan killed the Sandman (played by Iggy Pop) when he was younger after witnessing the murder of his mother on Christmas Eve. Years later he witnesses the murder of a young woman at the hands of the same man. The murder sends Nathan into a dark trip into his past through his dreams and the secrets of the Sandman. With Christmas approaching he knows that the Sandman will soon kill again.
Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver has composed the title song “Way She Moves” for the film. Composer Claudio Simonetti has created the score.
There is one thing, Argento is doing things a little different this time. He’s using crowd funding.
If you would like to be a part of this you can donate on his Indiegogo page and receive some incredible perks, including autographed merchandise.
I really hope Argnto’s campaign is successful. The movie sounds intriguing and with the talent involved “The Sandman” should be impressive.
