[NSFW Trailer] Revenge Thriller TRAUMA Depicts Controversial Violence

Director Lucio A. Rojas has revealed the red band trailer for his next film, Trauma. This is ahead of the thriller’s release at the Morbido Fest in Mexico.

Trauma has gained controversy for the rape-revenge aspect of its plot. The film follows four women who are traveling the countryside where they are attacked by a man and his son. The trailer depicts the escalating acts of violence and depravity that the women must endure in the film. Read the full synopsis below:

   

TRAUMA tells the brutal story of a group of women stalked and outraged by two men, whose evil proceeds from the dark past of Chile, in a film that has provoked great controversy among those who have seen it. TRAUMA digs in the dark past of the southernmost Latin country with the story of four young women which are attacked by a disturbed man and his son on a weekend trip.

Rojas has gone on to state that the film does come close to exploitation, regarding the levels of violence and shock portrayed in Trauma.

TRAUMA is a raw movie – tough, violent, and dramatic. Although by some of its elements it could get close to the exploitation cinema, we went quite further. Some villains which are not from the present, but other times of Chile’s history. The content is extreme, visceral, strictly for people over 18. But it was the only way to tell a story of this sort.

This will be Rojas’ third film to date. Sendero, his previous film, opened at Sitges International Film Festival in 2015 and was later released on digital outlets in December 2016.

Trauma will star Catalina Martin, Daniel Antivilo, Macarena Carrere, Ximena del Solar, Felipe Ríos, Dominga Bofill, Alejandro Trejo, Max Torres, Claudio Riveros and Eduardo Paxeco.

Trauma is set to premiere at Morbido Fest. The celebration will take place from October 26th – November 5th in Mexico City. No news as to a global release of the film at this time. Horror fans will hopefully be able to see the film at other festivals or digital platforms at a later time.
