Official My Space page:

Synopsis: A subtle mix of horror, thriller and drama, THE DIRT, centers on a married woman (Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni), a photographer, and her all-consuming wish to have a child.

During the course of the film, this woman develops a very morbid relationship with an unusual plant that grows in her living room, one that holds many secrets—but none as dark as the woman has herself.

The film, directed by Simona and Claudio Simonetti, will feature a score composed and performed by legendary musician Claudio Simonetti (of GOBLIN fame!), as well as special makeup FX courtesy of Italian FX icon Sergio Stivaletti.
