The long-awaited incredible 100% TRUE documentary about THE DIABOLIKAL SUPER-KRIMINAL is premiering at the Ravenna Nightmare Film Fest in Ravenna, Italy on Thursday, November 1st, 2007! The feature length film, directed by SS-Sunda, concerns the secret origins of the internationally infamous King of Crime known variously as Killing, Satanik, Kiling, Kilink and, in America, as Sadistik! It includes exclusive interviews with many of the personalities responsible for his reign of terror, from photographers, editorial staff and the actors that helped bring his stories to life! You will also witness startling new footage of the Diabolikal One doing what he does best... malicious mayhem! Some very interesting new music has also been recorded for the film which will soon be released on CD. Actress Erna Schurer (from STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER and other Euro horror classics), a femme fatale from the Sadistik photo novels, is in the documentary and will make an appearance at the festival along with the actor who played Sadistik... his true identity revealed for the first time ever!!!
The movie will be screened along with other top horror films at Italy's premier horror film festival, rubbing cinematic shoulders with the Italian debut of the acclaimed films HATCHET and DAYWATCH (the chilling Russian sequel to Nightwatch) and Lloyd Kaufman's POULTRYGEIST. Other films shown will be THE SLEEP OF DEATH - THE SLEEP OF THE REASON, Uwe Boll's SEED, UGLY SWANS, SIMON SAYS, THE FERRYMAN, LIVING AND THE DEAD, AUF BOSEM BODEM from Austria, THE CRY, SUMMERS SCARS and LE MADRI NERE (THE BLACK MOTHERS) among many others!
There will also be a Short Film Competition with jurors including the American Sadistik biographer Mort Todd and Valerio Evangelisti, writer of the popular Nicolas Eymerich novels and Nostrodamus trilogy.
This is the 5th edition of the Ravenna Nightmare Film Fest, held in the town where Dante, author of the Divine Comedy, lies in his tomb. Previously films shown have been by John Carpenter, Werner Herzog, John McNaughton, Miike Takashi, Jess Franco, Takashi Shimizu, Uwe Boll, Vincent Cassel, Jean Rollin, with guests like Dario Argento, Bryan Yuzna and Lamberto Bava.
