Foreign Horror Radar: Agnosiajmh314
So I've decided to come out of the hole I've been hiding in and write what I think is my first editorial in about 6 month. So what's the reason for coming out of hiding? My love for foreign horror & thrillers. There are a lot of projects that I have my eye on and would love to share with all of you but one new project is the main reason for starting what I hope will be a long line of foreign horror editorials and it's called Agnosia.
Agnosia is a film I've been keeping on my radar after I saw an article with Guillermo del Toro raving about Director Eugenio Mira. I have been keeping an eye on it and last week the first Spanish teaser came out for the film. I held off posting in hopes that we would see an English translation but that has yet to happen. From the teaser it looks as if this is going to be another Spanish film with great imagery, but with it's writer having also penned The Devil's Backbone and it producers having credits on great films like Pan's Labyrinth, The Orphanage, Che, Cell 211, and Agora it's easy to see that a lot of people with great eyes for artistic films have a hand in this one. Below you can check out the films synopsis followed by the Spanish teaser. Word is they are keeping a lot of the details very secretive but I cant wait to find out more after some great Spanish films have come out of the woodwork the last few years. Agnosia is currently in post-production and is hopefully slated for release later this year.
Joana Prats suffers from agnosia, a strange neuropsychological illness that affects her perception. Although her eyes and ears are in perfect condition, her brain cannot interpret the stimuli she receives through them.
As the only one who knows the industrial secret left behind by her father, the enigmatic young girl will become the victim of a sinister plan to get the information out of her by taking advantage of her sensory confusion.
As the plot unfolds, the two men closest to her will become crucial to its outcome: Carles, Joana´s fiancé and her father´s right hand man, and Vinent, a young, impulsive servant working at the Prats mansion.
