Book yourself a counselling session well in advance, because boy will you need one after TRAUMA, easily the most shocking and gruelling film of 2018.
Chile, 1973. After the military strike puts a dramatic end to president Allende‘s government, general Augusto Pinochet rules the country with blood and fire. Gruesome and unpunished murders took place in the shadows of the Chilean dictatorship. In the present day, what could have been a pleasant weekend in the countryside for a group of young women, turns into a nightmarish run to escape the horror that survived. As more locals are involved, and the lustful bloodbath gets unleashed, one by one the unlucky visitors must confront the unspeakable evil that lies inside ordinary men.
Unrelenting horror abounds in this pulse pounding and wince inducing South American shocker that will be burnt into your retinas for long after we let you go...
