If you fancy yourself the kind of horror fan that lives to see the envelope pushed as far as it can, you’ve likely seen many of the genre’s notoriously twisted films.
Cannibal Holocaust, Salo, Martyrs, A Serbian Film, Atroz (we’re still recovering from that one), maybe a few of the delectable August Underground releases. Well, we’ve got another soul-staining addition to the list, ready to be released for your viewing “pleasure” this October 23rd. Lucio A. Rojas’ delightfully provocative TRAUMA, coming by way of Artsploitation films. Check out the details in the presser below:
Artsploitation Gets to the Root of Trauma
Provocative and Explicit Film Explores the Visceral Consequences of Chile's Dictatorial History
Available on Blu-ray, DVD, Cable and Digital HD October 23rd
Artsploitation has announced the North American release of the shocking Chilean horror film Trauma. The third feature from director Lucio A. Rojas, Trauma has screened at Horror Hound Film Festival, the Vancouver Badass Film Festival de Canada, Morbido Film Fest and the Optical Theatre Festival in Italy, where Rojas took home the award for Best Film. Rojas hits hard with Trauma, a cinematic depiction of the horrors committed by the Pinochet regime and the visceral cycle of abuse that followed its fall. Trauma will be available October 23rd on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Vudu and more.
A shocking, brutal tale that blends the dark history of Chile's recent repressive dictatorial past with the seemingly modern and progressive Chile of today. The two worlds clash when a group of women venture to the idyllic countryside for a weekend of fun. But their outing soon turns nightmarish when a victim of government torture stumbles upon them, unleashing his pent-up rage. Face to face with the depravity of man, the women must fight for their very lives. Director Lucio A. Rojas exposes the horrors of politics with evil that can lie within the soul of ordinary men.
