After killing, they only have 32 seconds of peace.

 

WHY WE LOVE IT

Latin American Horror maestro Gustavo Hernandez (Quinzaine’s THE SILENT HOUSE which had a US Remake with Elizabeth Olsen, Tribeca’s YOU SHALL NOT SLEEP which established a box office record in Argentina) comes back to his roots with long tracking shots that build up the tension until it is almost unbearable. Starring Paula Silva (IN THE QUARRY) and Silver Bear winner Daniel Hendler and shot in a visually unique derelict sports centre, this chilling film will make you shiver until it’s unforgettable ending. 

 

SYNOPSIS

A virus breaks out and a chilling massacre rages through the streets of Montevideo. The sick become hunters, and only calm their fever by unscrupulously killing all those not yet infected. Unaware of this, Iris and her daughter spend the day in the sports club where Iris works as a security guard. When the night comes, a fight without mercy is about to begin. Their only hope of salvation arrives when they discover that after each attack the infected seem to have 32 seconds of peace before charging again.
