A hit at this year’s South by Southwest and Fantasia film
festivals, COLD SWEAT follows a young man (Facundo Espinosa) as he attempts to
track down his now ex-girlfriend (Camila Velasco), who has disappeared without
a word. After a string of e-mails, and with his good friend Ali (Marina Glezer)
striking up an on-line affair with the possible homewrecker, the two are led to
an ominous building, where they encounter a whole lot more than they bargained
for, specifically two offbeat villains and some literally explosive torture
Reviewing the film, Noah Lee of Film Threat said, “[COLD
SWEAT] has some clever kills the likes of which I’ve not seen and does so in
such a way that’s a hoot to watch… Director Adrián García Bogliano has created
a thrill ride that walks the line between thriller and a horror film with some
genuinely funny comedic moments.” Also, Todd Brown of Twitch commented, “The
action is well staged, the gore effects convincing, and stuff blows up real
good. COLD SWEAT is one of those movies that succeeds simply because it
delivers on its promises.” Jay Seaver of efilmcritic.com noted: “[COLD SWEAT
is] well put-together insanity…feeding the audience a steady stream of creative
thrills that are all the more fun for their nuttiness.” We’ll give Fango’s Sam
Zimmerman the last word; he called COLD SWEAT, “a solid, brisk, fun and tense
midnight movie” (read his full review here).
With COLD SWEAT, Fango offers you the perfect date for
Friday the 13th. See you at the show!
