Where in the hell have I been? Director Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s 2010 genre effort “Cold Sweat” (aka “Sudor Frio”) looks balls-out insane, and, for some bizarre reason, I’m just now finding out about it. What in the hell is wrong with me? Apparently I’ll be able to correct this issue when the film hits DVD this January, which is good, really, because I don’t think I’ve seen a horror movie that uses nitroglycerine so inventively.
Here’s what the flick is all about:
When Roman’s girlfriend disappears he expects to find her in the arms of another man. And find her he does but there is no lover on the scene, only a pair of crazy old men keeping her locked away in the basement of their crumbling mansion. Armed with wild-eyed political ideals and case after case of decades-old and highly unstable dynamite the villainous duo are conducting illicit experiments on a string of young women lured to their home via the internet and if Roman cannot free his young love she is likely to end up in pieces, or worse.
A delirious old school horror picture with the most memorable villains in years at its core, Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s COLD SWEAT was a huge hit at SXSW thanks to its creators’ wild imagination and sense of showmanship. Loaded with memorable characters and stylish action, COLD SWEAT is a shocker that never fails to entertain.
“Cold Sweat” explodes across US DVD players on January 17th, 2012. The trailer is a bit salty, so be careful if you’re watching this thing at work. Unless you’re one of those lucky bastards who has this week off. Damn you all. I mean, uh, Merry Christmas to all!
