Just announced as part of this March’s SXSW Film Festival, early indication was that Nicolas Goldbart’s Argentinean Phase 7 (Fase 7) wasn’t good for our audience. I think I judged way too soon.
This afternoon I made a few calls and got my hands on the official festival poster, images, a Metallica-rocking international trailer, a Dawn of the Dead-ish festival trailer, and an exclusive clip that also taps musically into Assault on Precinct 13.
From the executive producer of Paranormal Activity, Phase 7 looks like it taps into early Romero and can be described as a cross between The Crazies, Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later. We’re told Goldbart loves Carpenter and used temp music from Assault on Precinct 13, The Thing and Escape From New York.
Starring Daniel Hendler, Federico Luppi, Jazmin Stuart, and Jose “Yayo” Guridi, “Coco just moved to his new apartment with 7-month pregnant wife. When the building is in quarantined for a deadly flue. The neighbors became unexpected enemies.”
