Alex de la Iglesia (The Day Of The Beast, Perdita Durango, 800 Balas) will wrap shooting next week on the first in a landmark series of six horror TV movies for Filmax and Telecinco dubbed 'Films To Keep You Awake.'
The series is the first of its kind in the genre in Spain. Filmax is presenting the titles to buyers this week at Mipcom. Other directors involved include Jaume Balaguero, Paco Plaza, Mateo Gil, Narciso Ibanez Serrador and Enrique Urbizu.
De la Iglesia's The Child's Room (La Habitacion Del Nino) stars Leonor Watling (Talk To Her) and Javier Gutierrez (Football Days) in the tale of a married couple with a new-born baby who move into a haunted house.
'We are carrying out a film shoot for television,' said de la Iglesia. ''Films To Keep You Awake' is going to be a huge audience success.'
