Luciano and Nicolás Onetti have put their Italian giallo influences to one side as they venture into something quite different with their upcoming slasher/road horror movie What the Waters Left Behind, and below we have for you the first official trailer which made its debut in Cannes on May 20th. Check out the goods below and let us know if you’ll be keeping an eye on this one?

From the Press Release:

Luciano and Nicolás Onetti´s -“Sonno Profondo” (2013), “Francesca” (2015)- new film “What the Waters Left Behind” (“Los Olvidados”) landed in Marché du Film (Cannes Film Festival) with the fourth edition of Blood Window Galas. The showcase presented recent films from Ibero-America with the support of directors and programmers from Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival from Catalonia, Mexico’s Morbido Fest, and Bifan in South Korea.

The trailer of the film had its world premiere on May 20th together with 10 min. of early-cut screening. “What the Waters Left Behind” was the winner of the First Fantasy Film Competition organized by INCAA in Argentina.It was shooted in Epecuén in November 2016 and is currently in the postproduction stage.

Epecuén was one of the most important touristic villages of Argentina. Thousands of people concurred, attracted by the healing properties of its thermal waters. On November 10th 1985, a huge volume of water broke the protecting embankment and the village was submerged under ten meters of salt water. Epecuén disappeared. Thirty years later, the waters receded and the ruins of Epecuén emerged exposing a bleak and deserted landscape. The residents never returned.

The plot revolves around a group of young people that take a trip to the ruins in order to film a documentary about Epecuén. Ignoring the warnings, and after a brief tour, they get stranded in the abandoned village. Contrary to what they thought, they begin to realize that they are really not alone…

On this occasion the Onetti Brothers leave their seventies Italian giallo influences aside and dive deep into a classic slasher roadie, on the same line as “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “The Hills Have Eyes”.
