The Films That Influenced Fede Gianotti's ‘LENI’

LENI is a very personal story for me, even though it didn’t start that way. At first, I wanted to make a slasher, maybe an origin story for a slasher, but as I delved deeper and deeper into the character, the story started to become personal and turned into a character study about trauma.

Spooky Movies That Made Me, a story by Josh Ruben

I’ve signal boosted Stephen King’s CAT’S EYE (“Josh, I get it, you love the troll!”) and pedestalled ARACHNOPHOBIA (“I get it! Jeff Daniels plays terror for real! It makes the comedy work! Shush!”).
