DirectorCast

Amat EscalanteRuth Ramos, Simone Bucio, Jesús Meza, Edén Villavicencio

Mexico, Denmark / 2016 / 100 minutes / DCP

An outlandish body horror sci-fi that shatters genre conventions featuring an octopus that makes even Oldboy seem, um, tame. The domesticated life of a Mexican family gets savaged when a stranger introduces a living creature that brings sexual pleasures to their unfulfilled desires, but the bestial attraction leads to fatal consequences for some. Amat Escalante (Heli, 38th) eerily infuses fantastical elements with a realist aesthetics that will send tickles to your senses. Venice Film Festival Silver Lion for Best Director.
