Italian director Federico Zampaglione has revealed a few tidbits about his next
foray into the fearsome—one that teams him with a veteran of spaghetti splatter.
Zampaglione will next helm TULPA, scripted by Dardano
Sacchetti (pictured at right with Zampaglione), who has penned or co-written countless
Italian classics such as THE CAT O’NINE TAILS, BAY OF BLOOD (a.k.a. TWITCH OF
THE DEATH NERVE), ZOMBIE (without credit), CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD (a.k.a. THE
GATES OF HELL) and THE BEYOND. The director describes the new project as “a
very bloody and tense Italian thriller with some supernatural elements,” and
explains the title: “Tulpa is a term which comes from Tibetan Buddhism. It’s a
kind of projection of your metaphysical part, which, through meditation, can
become real. But sometimes tulpa goes the wrong way and turns into an evil
presence…which then wants to kill its creator. It’s mysterious and creepy
stuff.” Shooting is set to take place shortly in Rome and North Africa. You can
