Looking for some dark, Franco-Italian scares? Of course you are.

And lucky for you - new horror anthology Phantasmagoria is just that - with three times the kick of a regular horror flick. Featuring three short films by Mickael Abbate, Domiziano Cristopharo & Tiziano Martella, Diabolique, Il serpente dalla lingua acciaio and My Gift to You, the anthology is looking set to be a veritable smorgasbord of terror.

Set to premiere at Cannes, the film is being pitched as:

“Three different shorts about spirits belief and supernatural phenomenons able to surprise the audience in showing original, fascinating and scaring stories drawing on the traditional genre flavors of Thriller, Supernatural, Horror-Comedy, Zombie Action and Slasher filtered though the unique sensibility of each director.”

Which certainly sounds like it could be something very different from the usual set of remakes we've grown accustomed to - which is always an admirable quality in a film.

What do you guys think? Will Phantasmagoria be the best horror anthology you've seen in ages, or will it still pale in comparison to Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror? Let me know below!
