The Architecture of Fear: The Use of Space in Horror Cinema

Instructor: Vincenzo Natali

Natali burst onto the scene in 1997 with his surreal, low-budget sci-fi thriller Cube that impressed viewers and critics alike with Natali’s ability to stretch cinematic boundaries on a shoestring budget. Natali’s 2002 follow-up to Cube, Cypher,  paved the way for a tertiary effort, 2003’s Nothing which,  like its predecessors,  garnered worldwide critical kudos. His fourth feature project, Splice, premiered at the 2010 Sundance Festival and was subsequently acquired by Joel Silver through his Dark Castle label. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide.
