Shudder Unveils New Poster For Kafkaesque MOSQUITO STATE

Director Filip Jan Rymsza will see his festival darling Mosquito State released later this summer thanks to an exclusive deal with streaming service Shudder.

The unsettling Mosquito State script is by Rymsza and Mario Zermeno. The films stars Beau Knapp, Charlotte Vega, Jack Kesy, Olivier Martinez.

Check out the brand new poster:

Mosquito State Synopsis:

Isolated in his austere penthouse overlooking Central Park. The obsessive Wall Street data analyst Richard Boca (Beau Knapp) sees ominous patterns. His computer models are behaving erratically, as are the swarms of mosquitos breeding in his apartment. An infestation that attends his psychological meltdown.

Wall Street “quants”—the intense data analysts whose mathematical prowess can make the difference between a fortune and a flop. Consumed with his work, Richard doesn’t often stray from his office or apartment. But when Richard decides to go to a company party, he makes two acquaintances: the mysterious, sylphlike Lena (Charlotte Vega) and one pesky mosquito, both of which take root in his mind, altering his existence in profound ways.

Finding common ground between Franz Kafka, David Cronenberg and Mary Harron’s AMERICAN PSYCHO, director-screenwriter Filip Jan Rymsza emerges with a new kind of body horror, set during a single week of an exquisitely rendered pre-crash 2007 replete with signs of sociopolitical and economic rot. A hypnotic plunge into the fragile mentality of an individual who can see patterns long before the rest of us, MOSQUITO STATE adds a significant chapter to the subgenre of urban isolation.
