Twist of Caïn is a movie of fear, a strange Thriller, a feature film made by some passionate people who like "bis" and cinéma in complete sincere way. A cinema who return to the story as the most important thing, to the characters and to the iconographic images without necessarily full of superfluous special effects. A way of making voluntarily stollen to Hitchcock, De Palma, Fulci or Argento in his beggining. Atmosphere of 80, synthetic music, colored lighting and baroque sets! Stories which follow building characters! Through these some sections, I am going to present you at first the story, Then I shall present you the casting. To end I shall explain you a little the influences which guided me during the writing.
A killer rages on Rome. His modus operandi is always the same, the victims: women, are found without the skin of the face, nerves in lively. Eric Champlain presenter of independent radio station the night receives (in the style of Clint Eastwood in "Play Misty for Me") various calls of funny people or of lost people. Live evening a woman announces that she knows the killer; that she calls him now to go to her if he recognized her and tomorrow at the same moment, she will call again to give his identity and will give a file to the police afterward. She adds before hanging up that she can stop him. The next day when she calls back she is wildly murdered and it precipitates Eric into the infernal whirlwind of this story which he should never have lived...

About the project owner
I am Guillaume BEYLARD a young french director passionate by cinema since I was child!
Come to discover our world on:
the critic of my first feature from SYNERGIE MAGAZINE (Australia):
The classical music score is excellent and reallysustains the ambience of the film and the beauty of the scenery. The acting is solid and the subtitles are very clear. It is his Beylard’s first film,shot on a low budget but with a lot of creativityand sincerity. It has surprisingly superior cine-matography which captures the French country-side and its rustic character and the director cer-tainly knows how to use lighting to maximumeffect.
Sonia has just inherited a house from her grand-mother, it is located in the southwest of Franceand together with her boyfriend, David, they set-tle in for the long journey. As they approach thetown, they see a bloodied young woman on theroad ahead, but when they stop for her she runsoff into the bushes. This begins a series ofstrange events which increase in intensity asthey enter the house and Sonia begins to haveuncomfortable feelings and hear noises whichterrify her. Their encounters with the locals donot help either. Slowly Sonia becomes con-vinced there is a presence in the house andwants to immediately leave, but David is scepti-cal of her accounts and convinces her to stay.
However, when Sonia gets kidnapped, Davidbegins to believe something is going on and de-cides to investigate with the hope of finding hisgirlfriend. From this point on the film combinesfantasy and horror and moves quickly from anatmospheric and moody work of cinema intosomething more sinister.
David’s investigation leads him to rather bizarreand disturbing characters, some terrifying expe-riences, unexpected help and a truth from be-yond the grave.
WhileOssessione may be low budget fair, it cer-tainly excels in the creativity department withquite impressive mood, atmosphere and plot. Icertainly recommend it.
