‘They’ve awakened Hell’

The Unkind is a 2021 horror film about six vacationing American friends in Italy that unwittingly unleash an ancient demonic witch.

Directed by visual effects artist Luca Gabriele Rossetti – making his feature debut – from a screenplay co-written with Andrew Cohen and Joe Pastore, based on Rossetti’s story. Produced by Luca Gabriele Rossetti and Paul Thompstone.

The Marvelous Pictures-Dark Reign Entertainment co-production stars Tommaso Basili, Corey T. Stewart, Roberto Adriani, Edoardo Luciano’, Carlotta Bignotti, Arianna Monguzzi, Kavita Albizzati, Giulio Tropea and Andrea Fornale.


In 2008, a group of six friends from New York decide to vacation together in Italy, assuming that they are in for a smooth and relaxing two weeks. Their vacation soon turns sinister when strange things begin to happen and more than that when they learn of the mansion’s devastating history and realise that there is more to the house than anyone could have expected.

After the group discover a book that leads them to a sealed grave, they accidentally unleash an ancient witch, an unstoppable demoniac force eager to shed blood…


“To his credit, Rossetti does a decent enough job with The Unkind’s collection of clichés, getting a lot of mileage out of the old mansion, its cellars and hidden crypt The desaturated look he uses is yet another cliché but it works to add atmosphere to many scenes, unfortunately, others are so dark I had trouble seeing what was happening. While most of The Unkind’s kills are off-screen, there are a few decent effects using better-than-expected CGI […] at an hour and forty-five minutes, The Unkind is in need of some editing.” Voices from the Balcony


In North America, The Unkind will be released by Wild Eye Releasing On-Demand on November 30th 2021.
