The Crypt Monster is a 2021 Italian horror film about a movie geek who spots parallels between a comic book story and real-life horrors in his village. He and a few friends decide to investigate…

Directed by Daniele Misischia from a screenplay co-written by Antonio Manetti, Marco Manetti, Alessandro Pondi and Paolo Logli, with collaboration of Daniele Misischia and Cristiano Ciccotti.

The movie stars Tobia De Angelis, Amanda Campana, Pasquale Petrolo, Giovanni Calcagno, Claudio Camilli, Chiara Caselli, Ludovico Girardello and Eleonora Deluca.


” …there are some wild twists and turns in the film’s lore that keep you on your toes. There’s also some truly gnarly kills in here that place it perfectly in-between sci-fi and slasher – so much so that one might dare to suggest a sense of cosmic horror about the whole affair […] will be slightly amusing to the most shallow of genre film geeks, and everyone else will find it rather annoying.” FilmBook
