Exclusive Trailer, BTS Stills: Luigi Cozzi’s New Italian Thriller “BLOOD ON MELIES’ MOON”


With Arrow Video’s critically lauded new Blu-ray release of Luigi Cozzi’s 1980 classic CONTAMINATION hitting the streets today, FANGORIA is pleased to provide you with the first look at Cozzi’s (or, Lewis Coates as he is often credited in international prints of his films) new feature, the DIY meta-horror thriller BLOOD ON MELIES’ MOON.
The film stars Cozzi as himself, an Italian genre filmmaker embroiled in a murder mystery steeped in cinema. Filmed on location in Rome and starring the Italian masters like Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava as themselves, with contemporary Italian talent like filmmaker Luigi Pastore, all playing themselves, this shoestring shot labor of love is Cozzi’s passion project and a truly fascinating experiment in and of itself.

Have a look at the new trailer below as well as a pair of exclusive behind the scenes stills (one above, one below) of Cozzi and company cobbling this creeper together. Viva Cozzi!
