Check out the trailer below and we think you'll agree that HALLEY strikes a mental chord that is hard to shake. It's heavy presence lingers in the same way that the sweet and rancid stench of decomposition remains long after the decay has been washed away. For true horror fans, this limited engagement presentation is NOT TO BE MISSED!
When Visit Films categorizes Halley as "body horror," they are not kidding. Alberto Trujillo plays Beto, a man who seems to be caught in a Earth-bound purgatory. His body is going through some strange changes as he develops rashes, scabs, and maggot-inducing infections. He soon realizes that his illness is far greater than he first imagined: his body is actually decomposing - as is the natural order of things since he's dead - and no amount of make-up or cologne is going to hide that fact much longer. But before surrendering to his living death, Beto forms a friendship with the manager (Luly Trueba) of the 24-hour gym where he works as a night guard.
We can only imagine all the ways in which this film can provide an endless bevy of pungent gross-outs. But we're also hopeful that the film's helmer has integrated a good dose of the question over humankind's frail existence and the innate need to remain long after our card has been punched 'out.'
Halley is a co-production of Mexico and the Netherlands.
Seems like a novel twist to the walking dead genre.
