Below you’ll find the longest international trailer ever assembled, an 8-minute long look at Lucio A. Rojas and Cristian Toledo’s Chilean zombie flick Teranthropus: The Aberration, which display the bloodthirsty Pinochet enemy from the 70’s.
“A half beast/half human creature, product of a biological experiment carried out during Salvador Allende’s government has escaped from laboratory and to kill with no mercy anybody who crosses his way. Military soldiers, in a mission to capture a group of MIR militants, change their target in order to combat the monster….”
Supposedly based on true historical facts, Teranthropus (from greek “teras”, wich means Monster) is the name of a half beast/ half human creature, product of a biological experiment carried out during Salvador Allende’s government as a part of a genetic intervention program with the purpose to create super-soldiers to defend nation against a possible US invasion. Once Pinochet takes the power the program is interrupted.
“To create Teranthropus we used horror/action elements for a result that has many similarities with films like Predator, The Thing, Dog Soldiers, but adapted to our national context during that period,” explains Cristian Toledo.
