"Dante Tomaselli is one of most visually striking directors working in the horror genre these days. An independent director, working with small budgets, he has repeatedly shown that atmosphere, vision and style are often more important than costly, over-the-top effects to tell a scary story."

"I firmly believe Dante Tomaselli is one of the most refreshing and daring voices in the world of horror cinema. Those who require a little more from their genre flicks will find something deeply unnerving and downright scary. It’s hard to put your finger on what’s giving you a serious case of the creeps, but that’s part of TORTURE CHAMBER's charm...Dante Tomaselli is a master of his craft, a director who isn’t afraid to punish your senses with uncompromising visuals and a well-crafted, multi-layered sound design."

SATAN'S PLAYGROUND (2006)

"The director achieves impressive overall results...Richly atmospheric exercise in surreal horror...complex music/ambient audio design...beautifully menacing photography...Tomaselli creates a hyper-real atmosphere of striking primal-fear images, cackling lunacy, impending doom and grotesque humor...Belying very modest means, Tomaselli has delivered a design and tech package that’s first-rate."

DESECRATION (1999)

"Desecration is a haunting, stunningly original vision punctuated by some truly disturbing, electrifying shock sequences. Director Dante Tomaselli proves himself a passionate totally committed filmmaker with a very unique, vibrant personal style. Desecration serves notice that he is indeed a fierce talent to be reckoned with."
-Chas Balun, Deep Red Magazine (6/29/1999)
