One of the most underrated of the found-footage craze was Gustavo Hernández‘s festival hit La Casa Muda, which was eventually remade here in the States under the title The Silent House starring Elizabeth Olsen.
Hernández is finally back with his next horror film You Shall Not Sleep (No Dormirás), which Fox International is releasing in 2018.
“In an abandoned psychiatric hospital, an avant-garde theater group experimented with insomnia for the preparation of the montage of a work created twenty years ago by a group of patients. With the passage of days without sleep, they reach new thresholds of perception, that face them to energise and histories hidden of the place…
When Bianca, a young promise of the theater, joins the cast, competing for the lead role, must survive not only the intensity of work and her companions, but an unknown force that pushes her, like the others, to the tragic Denouement of the original staging.”
Belén Rueda, Eva De Dominici, and Natalia de Molina star.
