Ivan Zuccon's next film: Wrath of the Crows

Ivan Zuccon is working on his next film, Wrath of the Crows, which will bring together two of the best actresses in US horror cinema, both of whom have worked with Ivan before: Tiffany Shepis (Nympha) and Debbie Rochon (Colour from the Dark).

The cast also includes Michael Segal (Nympha, Colour from the Dark), Matteo Tosi (Unknown BeyondBad Brains), Emanuele Cerman (The Darkness BeyondThe Shunned House), Emmett Scanlan (Colour from the Dark) and Gerry Shanahan (Colour from the Dark). Plus US actress Tara Carnial (Fable: Teeth of Beasts, Beverly Hills Chihuahua). Screenplay by Ivan and author Gerardo Di Filippo. Effects by CreaFX (Nympha).


In a filthy, cramped jail, prisoners Larry, Deborah, Hugo, Hernest and Liza are obliged to suffer injustices from the guards and their chief, The Officer. Controlling them all is The Judge, a man no one has ever seen. Yet he is the one who sets the rules and is feared by inmates and guards alike.

The prisoners know how to behave and what rules are to be respected, but none of them remember life outside the walls of the fortress where they now reside. Their only memory, which slowly emerges during the story, is of a great evil that led them to the fortress and the seemingly endless length of time they have been imprisoned there.

Suddenly, a new prisoner appears out of nowhere; The Princess. She is beautiful, dressed in a coat of crow feathers, shining, sweet-smelling, sensual. Her appearance creates curiosity in the other inmates, but also envy, suspicion and a deep sexual agitation.

The Princess quickly reveals her dark, supernatural nature, as she can move objects with her mind and is extremely powerful.

The prisoner's dream of escape, even though they have no idea what awaits them outside the fortress walls, nor are they interested; the only thing that matters is to escape from the doomed prison. But you can't escape from yourself or your past.

In the end, the prisoners realize that the entire prison, inside and out, is a terrifying mirror game, where reality and illusion collide, and nightmares become real, throwing them into an endless vortex of terror and madness.
