The Argentine film Aterrados / Terrified by Demián Rugna was the winner of the Award for Best Film in the “Horror” Features competition at the 2018 edition of Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and fantastic movies from all around the world.
In Terrified, a quiet street in a Buenos Aires neighborhood is disturbed by a series of mysterious and unsettling events. A woman hears hostile voices coming from the sink. Her husband is being driven crazy by his neighbor's 5am remodeling projects. That neighbor—whom nobody has seen recently—has been desperately attempting to get in touch with a paranormal investigator to explain some disconcerting activity in his house. Across the street, a grieving mother makes her own horrific discovery prompting an investigation from a soon-to-retire detective known for his interest in the occult.
The 2018 edition of Fantastic Fest took place September 20 - 27 in Austin.
