Penumbra Trailer

"Excellent selection." We've got two (non-April Fools) indie trailers to feature today, both couldn't be more unlike. This second one is for an Argentinian horror thriller called Penumbra, written and directed by the Bogliano Brothers, about a woman who rents out an apartment in Buenos Aires and everything isn't what it seems. There's a solar eclipse, many men tying up women, lots of screaming, it's intense, but still billed as a "superbly realized South American horror slow-burner." If this is your thing, or if that brutal image above somehow caught your attention, give it a look. Horror from the crazy minds of two Argentinian filmmakers.

Watch the official US trailer for the Bogliano Brothers' horror Penumbra, in HD via YouTube:

An arrogant businesswoman, Marga (Cristina Brondo), rents out her apartment to a suspicious couple on the same day a solar eclipse is to take place. But when she finds out there's a connection between her new tenants and the eclipse taking place, it's too late, she meets a fate worse than death—or should that be life!

Penumbra is written & directed by Spanish-Argentinian brothers Adrián García Bogliano & Ramiro García Bogliano, of numerous films like Riddlebox, Scream the Night, I'll Never Die Alone, The Accursed and Cold Sweat previously. This first premiered out at Fantastic Fest in Austin last year. IFC Midnight is releasing in limited theaters April 20th, along with VOD/iTunes as well. You can find the film on Facebook or

what caught my attention is how creepy everything seemed. i'd give it a rent and hope the payoff at the end is worth it.
