Directed by Zampaglione, from a script he co-wrote with Stefano Masi, the film stars Lauren LaVera (Terrifier 2) as Lisa Gray, an aspiring art restorer who visits a small Italian village to return a medieval painting to its former glory. Little does she realise that her life will be put in danger from an evil curse and a monster born of myth and brutal pain.
Starring alongside LaVera are Claudia Gerini (Diabolik, Love and Bullets, John Wick: Chapter 2), Giovanni Lombardo Radice (City of the Living Dead), Taylor Zaudtke (Sadistic Intentions), Linda Zampaglione (Time Is Up), Jonathan Dylan King (From Scratch), Lorenzo Renzi (Romanzo Criminale), Gianluigi Calvani (The New Pope), Yassine Fadel (FBI: International), Melanie Gaydos, Stefano Martinelli and newcomer Courage Oviawe.
