Official Trailer For Head-Exploding ‘Penumbra’

Below we’ve now added the new official trailer for Adrián García Bogliano (Rooms for Tourists, Penumbra) and Ramiro García Bogliano’s (Cold Sweat writer) Penumbra (Twilight), which stars Cristina Brondo, Camila Bordonaba and Berta Muñiz.

From IFC Films, the horror pic will open in select theaters and nationwide on demand + digital outlets (iTunes, SundanceNOW, Amazon Streaming and XBOX Zune) on April 20th.

Combining stylistic elements of classic Polanski with a contemporary vision that rivals anyone working in horror today, the Bogliano brothers’ ‘Penumbra’ is a superbly realized South American horror slow-burner. Marga is a highly motivated, arrogant and successful businesswoman on assignment in Buenos Aires — a city she hates and whose people she loathes. While in the Argentina capital on a day the whole population is waiting to view a rare solar eclipse she must also find a new tenant for her family’s decrepit apartment. Rapidly losing her patience waiting for one applicant she runs into the mysterious Jorge lurking outside the front door of the place who informs her that he has a client willing to pay four times what she is asking in rent. There’s one catch — the paperwork must be signed immediately. As greedy Marga waits to complete the transaction several of Jorge’s associates suspiciously appear at the apartment ready to strip the wallpaper. And what’s behind the décor signals a startling fate worse than death – or should that be life!

The film is described as am Argentinian House of the Devil. It premiered at the Fantastic Film Festival in Austin, Texas.
