It was announced yesterday that Bloody Disgusting Selects will bring the apocalypse this July with Nicolás Goldbart’s Argentine apocalyptic horror film Phase 7 (Fase 7), which opens exclusively at AMC locations on July 13 (Wednesday and Friday nights). Executive produced by Steven Schneider (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and starring Daniel Hendler, Jazmín Stuart, Yayo Guridi and Federico Luppi (Pan’s Labyrinth), Phase 7 premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March, and also screened at the Boston Underground Film Festival and the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival.
We have now added the official theatrical trailer that can be viewed below. It’s a hyper-charged look at the end of the world, which comes courtesy of the New World Order. Freaky stuff….
Before its theatrical release, it will screen at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal and the Danger After Dark Festival in Philadelphia–both in early July.
The film mixes satire, humor, horror and social commentary in a way that reminds viewers of the arch Shaun of the Dead and the savvy claustrophobia of [REC].
“In the film, Coco (Hendler) has just moved to a new apartment with his wife Pipi (Stuart), who’s seven months pregnant. At first, they don’t seem to notice the growing chaos around them, but when authorities quarantine their building after a deadly pandemic breaks out, Coco joins forces with his off-kilter, but well-prepared and stocked next-door neighbor Horacio to defend his refrigerator and keep Pipi safe. Meanwhile, outside the building, Buenos Aires–and the world as the apartment denizens know it, is disappearing. The world is ending; got ammo?”
