IFC Midnight Unleashes the Horrors of Penumbra on DVD
Wondering when you'll be able to own Penumbra from Adrián García Bogliano (Rooms for Tourists) and Ramiro García Bogliano (Cold Sweat), which stars Cristina Brondo, Camila Bordonaba and Berta Muñiz? Wonder no more!
From the Press Release
A ruthless, take-no-prisoners lawyer comes up against forces - natural and otherwise - even she may not be able to handle in the gripping and unnerving PENUMBRA, a supernatural shocker from Spain's new horror hitmakers the García Bogliano brothers. Set on the day of a rare solar eclipse, when nothing is as it should be, the movie is set to disturb audiences in the comfort of their homes when it arrives on DVD on August 28, 2012, via IFC Midnight and MPI Media Group, with an SRP of $24.98.
Marga (Cristina Brondo; Russian Dolls, L'Auberge Espagnole) is a highly motivated, successful and arrogant businesswoman from Spain on assignment in Buenos Aires, a city she looks down upon and whose people she loathes. While in the Argentine capital on a day the whole population is waiting to view a rare solar eclipse, she must also find a new tenant for her family's decrepit apartment. Rapidly losing her patience, she comes upon the mysterious realtor Jorge (Berta Muñiz, Plaga Zombie) lurking outside the front door. He informs her that he has a client willing to pay an astonishing four times what she is asking in rent. There's just one catch - the paperwork must be signed immediately.
As Marga waits to complete the transaction, several of Jorge's associates suspiciously appear at the apartment ready to strip the wallpaper to get at the mysterious wall behind it, and before long Marga discovers that their plan for the building and for her may mean a startling fate worse than death.
In the league of Rosemary's Baby, The Wicker Man and Ti West's The House of the Devil, PENUMBRA is the latest superbly realized horror entry from Argentine brothers Adrián García Bogliano and Ramiro García Bogliano (Cold Sweat, Watch 'em Die).
