FEATURING THE ATTENDANCE OF DIRECTOR FLAVIO PEDOTA!
Packed with more blood, more gore, and more bone-chilling, jaw-dropping thrills than your heart’s desire, INFECCIÓN is a ferocious new nightmare in the zombie canon. In Caracas, a Russian under the influence of the Krokodil drug is infected with a rabies virus and unleashes an epidemic of flesh-eating cannibals. Amid all this, a doctor embarks on a hostile journey in a destroyed Venezuela to save his son from infection. Like a nightmare, director Flavio Pedota takes shreds of contemporary reality and turns it into something new, something with a broad streak of social satire that captures the turbulent air befalling Venezuela today out on our front pages: the deaths, the destruction, the secrets tragedies people have taken to their grave. These crazed, flesh-eating horde breakdown and up-end the natural order of society into an endless war, endless threat, and endless fear that serves as a timeless warning.
