When discussing his work on the film Smerilli says, "Scoring The Bunker Game was something special. I had the opportunity to dive into unknown territories. I blended thrilling sounds of metal sheets, roaring self-built instruments, deep techno beats, crazy synths and a fantastic string orchestra to have an operatic breath. We wanted to be bold and rough and lyrical at the same time. Punch straight and make dream."

The Bunker Game synopsis is as follows: Laura is an actress in a LARP (Live Action Role Playing) game where participants play the survivors of an atomic war who live underground in a sealed bunker. After several mysterious accidents, the game is interrupted and the players leave the bunker while the staff remain behind to investigate the disappearance of Greg, the game's mastermind. They soon find themselves trapped inside and in peril as they begin to die in mysterious ways. The group realizes that someone or something paranormal is playing a twisted game with them which quickly plunges into a terrifying fight for survival.​
