Remarkable “Rape & Revenge” which introduces us to Julia (Ashley C. Williams, one of the “Human Centipede parts” in The Human Centipede, Tom Six, 2009) who is abused, raped and left for dead. A neo-noir Japanese style revenge movie with sometoppings of the new wave of American Independent terror. The debutant director Matthew A. Brown, directs, writes and produces a disturbing and shameless movie with a prominent in crescendo pace. It can leave neither women nor men feeling indifferent…
EXISTS (2014)- Spanish premier
A found footage directed by the Cuban filmmaker Eduardo Sanchez one of the creators of “The Blair Witch Project”. Fifteen years later, the director blends horror and action to offer us one of the most ambitious found footage ever filmed. Since the beginning of the film, we will see as how one of the fathers of the genre (along with Daniel Myrick) introduces pure action avoiding in a very imaginative way the typical, never-ending, tedious, irritating and useless introductions of this type of movies. Undoubtedly this is one of the big titles of the edition … and will watch it as a Spanish premiere.
STARRY EYES (2014)-
This film is a journey through the bowels of the famous but mostly unknown Hollywood. A persistent and persuasive girl named Sarah Walker is willing to do anything to achieve her most cherished dream … The plot that evolves constantly to surprise the viewer and some Lynch and Cronenberg “toppings” make the film a very exciting and stimulating experience. In short, a visceral dark film without any remorse of the ambitions of the film industry in Hollywood.
LET US PREY (2014)-
If one word describes perfectly the essence of this film, this is mystery. Since its first frame, the film gives us the feeling of not fully understanding what is going on, but all part of the game that we invited the director. Our mysterious preacher has everything under control and as the filmdraws on the story will become clearer. Quite bloody and gory, the film will delight all blood and guts lovers. Pollyanna McIntosh’s performance as femme fatale is more than remarkable.
LIVING DARK (2014)- Spanish premier
2001, Ted and his brother have just buried his father. While returning home after the funeral they come across a mysterious cave. Intrigued, they decide to dig into it to find out why someone didn’t finish the work. All their findings are being uploaded to the net until May the 19th, 2001. This is the starting point of Living Dark, a suffocating horror film that reminds The Descent (Neil Marshall, 2005). Despite the fact that is a low budget movie it’s well-crafted and directed, which makes it a really claustrophobic film. We could say that this film is the most independent one of this edition. Note that he script is based on an internet story, so we may never know if it truly happened or not … disturbing, or?
