Summer Screams En Español
It’s been a while since we have suggested a particular film for our readers to catch, but there is a new summer horror movie En Español that you absolutely should not miss!
Terror Films has released it’s official trailer and poster for their very first Spanish language horror movie, Forward, which is to be released Tuesday, May 1!
While the history of the Spanish cinema, specifically in the horror genre, is not in mainstream of most North American lives, we highly recommend the documentary, “Horror Europa", which explores the genre all the way from Nosferatu to the modern Spanish cinema. Even if it has been under-appreciated, Spain has long been a master of horror, excelling specifically in the realm of psychological dreads with some of the most drastic plot twists in the genre.
While Spain has had a horror boom that mirrored the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s, it wasn’t until nearly 10 years ago that the international community began to take notice. Spain has since emerged as a leader of horror, delivering some of the most terrifying films in recent memory.
In fact, Vulture.com has curated a list of 15 of the best in case you want to catch up.
Written and directed by Henry Bedwell, the film features Harold Torres & Axel Ricco as 2 assassins hired to avenge their boss. Novel concept right?
According to the official press release, “The job leads them to what appears to be an abandoned hotel. However, they soon find themselves in an unexpected maze of madness, where realities intertwine and nightmares come to life. Faced with an evil demon named Larissa – played by Latin America television star Lisette Morelos – the duo realizes that the gates of hell prove to be closer to our plane of existence than either of them could have expected.”
FORWARD has been the the recipient of multiple film festival awards including:
Best Feature Fiction at the 12 Month Film Festival,
Winner of Best Fantasy Film at the Feratum Film Festival
the Laurel of Achievement at Cinema Grand Prix.
In addition, Forward also recieved an official selection at: Sustefest, Los Angeles CineFest & BioBio Cine.
Terror Films will release FORWARD exclusively in N. America with English subtitles on Vudu, Amazon Instant, iTunes, Google Play and Xbox Live. Following the North American release, iTunes and Google Play will host Forward in Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, Costa Rica, & Honduras with a worldwide release on additional platforms in the fall.
