Based on the novel by William de Rugy, The Antrum Movie is a modern take on the classic mystery/thriller. The title, “The Antrum” is a reference to the area of the town of Antrum in Italy. To save the life of their recently dead pet dog, a teenage girl and boy go into a forest and discover a hole in the ground. Inside, they find a body, alive but dead from a bullet wound.
From the investigation, the girl becomes intrigued by what she sees and decides to investigate further. At first, she views the body as a statue but as she gets closer, a dark and devious force enters the scene and takes possession of her doll. The girl races to her friends and family only to find that her friends have gone too and that she is the only witness to this foul play. Now, with the help of some local boys (and a touch of technology), the girl is determined to find out who or what killed her pet.
Based on the Traditional Myths of the Italian Witches
Based on the traditional myths of the Italian witches, The Antrum Movie follows the life of Madeline, an escaped convict who stumbles upon the grave of her dead pet, which was found in a large bear trap somewhere in the woods. Once inside the trap, Madeline is haunted by the spirits of the cannibals who killed her pet. Armed with the help (and plenty of clues) of her friend Luca, Madeline sets out on a quest to find the “real” cannibals who made the trap… Although her quest to find proof against these cannibals’ alleged wickedness may prove to be futile, the woman still has to deal with her unfinished emotional loss and the repercussions of her pet’s death. The true meaning of closure (for both her and Luca) comes in the form of the final candlelight dinner.
The movie was received well by critics (and audiences) and went on to garner critical acclaim at the Telluride film festival. The film festival organizers, however, were not blind to the potential commercial appeal of the film. In keeping with the spirit of social media, the film was quickly released online for viewers to enjoy. This release was facilitated by the involvement of social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. It is no surprise then that we see that The Antrum Movie has now become one of the most sought-after social media items on YouTube and other social media sites.
As expected, The Antrum Movie claims the title of Best Scary Movie of 2021. Although it is far from the top of the list, it still holds its own claim to the title. In terms of the film festival, the movie claims first place. Not surprising given that it was screened at the Telluride film festival.
The Antrum Movie’s Producers Work Hardly on the Sequel
With this triumph in tow, the producers of The Antrum Movie are now hard at work on the sequel. While we wait, they have already released another teaser trailer. The teaser shows us what happens after Michael Laicini’s character saves the bride (Diana Counts). It is possible that the second installment of The Antrum Movie will be released in late 2021, prior to the premiere of the third installment of the film franchise at the Telluride Film Festival.
Having the best description, The Antrum Movie is definitely on par with other modern horror films. Fans of the movie will be excited to know that The Antrum Review will soon reveal more about the plot of the film, as well as who should come up with the concept. We can only hope that Michael La Chi crumples up his screenplay and hands it over to an experienced screenwriter and film festival organizer.
Based on the successful Bride of Frankenstein remake, The Antrum Movie is sure to be a big hit among horror movie enthusiasts. Although there are other similar stories being made today, The Antrum Movie will surely stand out among them. The trailer just gave us an idea as to what to expect from the film, but what remains is up to the makers of this suspenseful and engrossing movie. So get ready for more The Antrum Movie news from now on.
