Described out of Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas as an Argentinian House of the Devil, Bloody’s David Harley was a mixed fan of Adrián García Bogliano and Ramiro García Bogliano’s Penumbra, which was acquired out of the fest by IFC Films.
“ ‘Penumbra‘ creates an anxiety-producing environment with no escape that oozes atmosphere – not a huge shock, considering the brother pulled off something similar in ‘Cold Sweat’ – so it’s a shame that the soundtrack seems to be battling it at every turn. With a little fine tuning (some scenes with the outside world need trimming), Penumbra could be great but as it stands, it’s a solid, yet familiar, thriller.”
