Director Statement

"Shady dealings" is my first short film. This idea was born from a nightmare of my cousin. In his dream, he bought a car and when he was to park in his garage he noticed that a corpse was hidden in the trunk. He told me about his nightmare and quickly I began to imagine that scene. That's how "Shady dealings" was born. The horror genre has not been my predilection, I don't like so much the blood, the dismembered bodies or the guts, but it does the horror comedy. I love acid humor, that's why I wanted to give to my cousin's nightmare a touch of comedy.
