In addition to Cold Sweat and the three newly purchased films, Bogliano directed the upcoming chiller Penumbra (review here) and is also linked to one segment of The ABC’s of Death. Among his other titles are 36 Steps and The Accursed.

From the Press Release
Synapse Films has snared rights to three terrifying feature films by celebrated Fantastic Fest and SXSW filmmaker Adrian Garcia Bogliano, the Argentine director of festival favorite Cold Sweat and the upcoming Penumbra, grabbed by IFC Midnight on the eve of the film’s Fantastic Fest world premiere.
In Rooms for Tourists a busload of girls fall prey to a town of terror… what connects the victims? The young filmmaker of Watch ’em Die takes a job that leads to horror. Four young girls stop to help a woman in the street, and it leads to rape, horror and death in the breath-stopping I Will Not Die Alone.
“I am a huge fan of Adrian’s films and have seen every single one. I feel that he may be the most talented new filmmaker I have come across,” enthuses Synapse head Jerry Chandler. “He is a master of making the most of miniscule budgets, and his attention to detail is unmatched. I was hooked when I first saw Rooms for Tourists—the atmospheric dread is palpable early on. I Will Not Die Alone is somewhat similar to I Spit On Your Grave, only it’s a great movie! And Watch ’em Die is much more fun to watch than Hostel or its myriad imitations.”
Synapse Films exec Jerry Chandler negotiated the deal with the filmmaker.
