FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A MODERN HORROR MASTER DELIVERS HIS MOST EXPLOSIVE AND UNBEARABLY SUSPENSEFUL ENTERTAINMENT YET
Young Prodigy Adrian Garcia Bogliano's Nitroglycerine-Fueled Shocker, Likened to One of the Greatest Suspense Classics, Arrives on DVD on January 17, 2012
"Like The Wages of Fear crossed with Saw, with touches of The People Under the Stairs." - Fred Topel, Screen Junkies
New York, NY- Barely 30 years old,writer-director Adrian Garcia Bogliano has more than a dozen horror features andshort films under his belt, and he tops himself in Cold Sweat,a pulse-pounding horror thriller whose title aptly describes what it produces in audiences. A sensation at the 2011 SXSW festival, it will chill the bones of home viewers when it arrives on DVD on January 17, 2012, from Dark Sky Films and MPI Media Group. It carries an SRP of $24.98.
With films like 36 Steps, I'll Never Die Alone, Watch 'em Die and Rooms for Tourists, Adrian Garcia Bogliano has quickly established himself as a master whose work transcends the limits of horror and suspense - even garnering a Critic's Choice notice in The New York Times. Cold Sweat may be his most effective effort to date.
When Roman's girlfriend Jackie disappears, he expects to find her in the arms of another man. And, with the help of a friend, find her he does - but there is no lover on the scene, only a pair of demented old men keeping her locked away in the basement of their crumbling mansion. Armed with wild-eyed, reactionary political ideals and case after case of decades-old and highly unstable explosives, the villainous duo are conducting illicit experiments on a string of young women lured to their home via the Internet. With Jackie doused in nitroglycerine, her every step toward escape is fraught with the possibility of sudden death. If Roman cannot free his young love, she is likely to end up in pieces. A delirious, old-school horror picture with the most memorable villains in years at its core, COLD SWEAT was a huge hit at the SXSW festival thanks to its creator's wild imagination and sense of showmanship. Loaded with memorable characters and stylish action, it's a shocker that never fails to entertain.
Starring Facundo Espinosa (The Motorcycle Diaries), Marina Glezer (Valentin) and Camila Velasco as the unfortunate girlfriend who must very carefully strip off all of her nitro-soaked clothes, Cold Sweat has been called "a highly volatile mix of The Wages of Fear (1953) and 'torture porn' tropes, with an uncomfortable grounding in political reality" (Anton Bitel, Sight and Sound), whose director "constructs suspense so skillfully here" (Fred Topel, Screen Junkies).
