explosive Argentinean film is set in a dystopian future where magic
and technology coexist. In the mortal world, a rogue wizard named
Lucio Fulcanelli is taken prisoner by a rebel squad. He is forced to
open a portal into the demonworld. An uneasy partnership between them
and Razor, a mercenary, results in a major war with superhuman devils
and cyborg kill-girls.
Director Pablo Pares is best known for a series of splatter horror films
in the late '90s, PLAGA
ZOMBIES; he also worked with Daniel de la Vega on numerous short
films and CHRONICLE
OF THE RAVEN
(Jennifer's Shadow). This time he brings the same enthusiasm for
gore and mayhem to his cyberpunk fantasy world. The bonkers film was
originally constructed as a five-part miniseries (2010-15), re-edited
into this mind-boggling thrill-show with a less-than-desirable concern
for continuity. Although the narrative is a bit 'difficult,'
the movie is never boring.
actress Caro Anges plays five different characters Loly 3.0, Rebecca,
Arcangel Azazel, Nancy 4.0, and Victoria 1.0.
Argentinean film with optional English subtitles; widescreen format,
uncut version (120 min.), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC, playable on
American machine. Extras include theatrical trailer.
