On a cold winter night, Laura reads his brother David the story of a strange creature that attacks children. Suddenly, a shiver runs Laura's body, feeling a strange presence in the house. It’s him.
Directed by Ivan Villam el, "Mr.Dentonn" is a reference to the fantasy story films of th e 80s, a classic tale where the warm th of our home is broken by the presence of a dark who lives to disrupt sleep children.
In "M r.Dentonn" we transport the viewer to that place he lived as a spectator of the genre as children. A dark tale from which arise the limits of th e imagination and has an impact on popular folklore.“M r.Dentonn "is a recovery of a tone and form of film making, influenced by the mix of family film s and horrific elements that were so successful in the past decades. A story influenced by the films of John Carpenter and by film s such as "The Lost Boys," "Fright Night", "The Mons ter Squad" and "Poltergeist".
We will work with a look very ambitious, professional visual style and seeks to introduce the spectator into the story, live and feel the nightmare as their own characters. Always respecting the tone balance be tween scary and classicism, with out resorting to violent or bloody excesses. The fantastic filmim ages of “M r.Dentonn” remain in the viewer's retina as the nightmares of every adult child with in us.
