Dario Picture

Two weeks ago an Indiegogo campaign went live, raising money for Italian horror master Dario Argento’s next film.  Based on E.T.A Hoffman’s short story “The Sandman” the film will star punk rock legend Iggy Pop as a serial killer “who murders his victims with a lethally jagged melon spoon and claims their eyes as trophies.”

A favorite of the Podwits off-shoot site, Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers, Dario Argento is a living legend in the horror genre and has given genre fans such memorable films as DEEP RED (1975), SUSPIRIA (1977) and OPERA (1987).  With this latest project, THE SANDMAN, he is asking his fans to participate; to help secure his artistic freedom and to allow them to truly be a part of something special…with some truly amazing contributor perks.

As the campaign approaches its midway point, the Sandman Team is still far from reaching its goal and can use your help.  If you are a fan of Dario Argento and/or Iggy Pop, or just a film lover, you can show your support following the below hyperlink to the Indiegogo campaign page.
