Getting quite a bit of buzz out of the Slamdance Film Festival (taking place kitty-corner to the Sundance fest) is the Spanish-language first-person psychological chiller Atrocious, which focuses on the case of a brother and sister who investigate a local urban myth while on holiday, resulting in strange occurrences at the family’s summer house.
Ryan Daley was lucky enough to be one of the first ever to see the film, which he calls a “success”: “While it doesn’t know any new tricks, Atrocious is a dog that perform the old tricks just fine. As the camera whips through the trees in well-edited POV shots, there’s something about the long sequences of night-visioned hedge maze stumbling that are completely hypnotic.”
