Fans of Gothic and Euro-horror will rejoice at the awe-inspiring madness and visceral aesthetic of DAWN BREAKS BEHIND THE EYES, a visual feast in the vein of Dario Argento, Jean Rollin, and Mario Bava. Equally mesmerizing and erotic, it fluctuates between visual poetry and shocking violence. Set in a strange alternative reality, our tale focuses on two lovers who have just inherited a rundown castle, a melancholic woman and her irritable husband, who decide to spend the night in this foreboding and derelict residence. As time and reality slowly start to shift around them, unimaginable horrors ensue deteriorating their fading sanity.
