Artsploitation Films is putting out the crazy and ambitious horror anthology from Argentina, ‘Terror 5’. The film is directed by brothers, Sebastian Rotstein and Federico Rotstein, which are first time directors. It is a film that uses political crises in a country and how is wraps its characters into a world of Bondage, Torture, and Zombies.
Sebastian Rotstein and Federico Rotstein made a statement of their approach towards ‘Terror 5″,
“A bunch of people immersed in their own world without realizing that everything else is falling apart. We were interested in exploring that idea through different situations almost happening on real time. Then, we wanted to add an alteration, a strange and ambiguous time perception. And we wanted to explore it in the most cinematic way. A story told by the way it is shot by using narratives shots instead of descriptive ones. Although it is called Terror 5, we didn’t approach the stories as horror stories. We did it examining each character and each behavior on a specific moment.”
Synopsis: While most of the residents of a small Argentinian town attend a funeral procession following a tragic building collapse, the few who do not will face terrors of their own in this mashup of urban legends from brothers-filmmakers Sebastián and Federico Rotstein. Think bondage, torture, zombies…and governmental corruption. Hernán and Gabriela, are going to a motel without realizing that inside the room, behind the mirror, there is something waiting for them. Lucio and Paulo have a plan to swap girlfriends without realizing what will really happen. A group of friends are watching a snuff movie ignoring that the real terror is sitting next to them. Juan attends a date with Sonia thinking he is going to get laid, when he realizes that she has bigger plans for him. As their primal urges distract them all, local officials are judged innocent of the neglect that caused the building collapse—and then the horror really begins. – IMDb
