Dario Argento’s ‘Phenomena’ Finally Getting A Sequel

by Thomas Tuna

So what if it took almost 40 years?

Phenomena–the 1985 Italian supernatural horror giallo film from Dario Argento–will finally get a sequel from Italian production company Titanus, according to a report in Variety.

Titanus–making a return to film production after many years of reduced capacity–is working on the new film, said to be loosely based on Phenomena. The movie–to be set in the U.S.–will be produced with the U.S. company The Exchange.

Producers are currently searching for a U.S. director for the project, which will be cast with both American and international actors.

The original Phenomena–starring Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence and Daria Nicolodi–follows an American girl staying at a remote Swiss boarding school who discovers she has psychic powers that allow her to communicate with insects. She uses these powers to pursue a serial killer who is slaughtering young women around the school.

After its release in Italy, Phenomena was distributed in the States by New Line Cinema under the alternate title Creepers, and then was released in the UK in 1986.
