SXSW Bound Horror Movie MADRE Looks Unnervingly Dark

Madre is the new horror feature from visual FX maestro Aaron Burns.

I have just watched the teaser for Madre, which was password protected so I’m not sure if I can share it with you all yet. Although it didn’t give away much it looks like we’re going to get some original, genuinely creepy, unnerving horror.

As well as acting, director/writer Aaron Burns is known for his FX work on (awesome) movies that are loved by almost every gorehound. His work on films such as Planet Terror, Machete, Grindhouse, and more recently, Eli Roth’s Amazonian cannibal flick The Green Inferno give us an insight into what we can expect from his new horror movie.

Madre will premiere at the SXSW 2017 festival in Austin Texas

From The Press-Release

Madre is directed by Aaron Burns (Knock, Knock, Green Inferno), who also wrote the original screenplay, and stars Chilean actress Daniela Ramírez (La Poseída, Los Archivos del Cardenal), Cristobal Tapia Montt (The Stranger), Matías Bassi (Pulseras Rojas) and Aida Jabolin. The film is produced by Nicolás López and Miguel Asensio Llamas.

 OFFICIAL PLOT 

Madre follows the story of Diana Prieto (Ramirez), a four months pregnant wife and mother of Martin (Matías), who is severely autistic autism and whose special needs have become overwhelming for her. After a chance encounter with Luz (Aida), a gifted Filipino caretaker, Diana regains some sanity in her life as Martin begins to adapt and communicate quickly under the supervision of Luz. However, as he has only been taught to communicate in Filipino, Diana starts to suspect that Luz is using the language barrier to turn Martin against her and into something much more sinister.
