The Chilean chiller that premiered at last year’s FrightFest is preparing to emerge into wide release.
Uncork’d Entertainment will release EMBRYO on VOD and digital platforms April 6. Directed by Patricio Valladares (HIDDEN IN THE WOODS), it stars Romina Perazzo, Domingo Guzmán, Carolina Escobar, Cristian Cuentrejoa, Evelyn Belmar, Paulina Facuse, Yuri Caceres, Giordano Rossi and Serge François. The synopsis: “Kevin [Guzmán] and his girlfriend Evelyn [Perazzo] are camping in the woods when she is abducted and impregnated by otherworldly beings. As the entity inside her begins to grow at a rapid rate, Evelyn’s cravings can only be satiated by the taste of human flesh. When she brutally attacks a doctor, they go on the run to the big city where they can find help to remove the embryo that is slowly taking over Evelyn’s body.”
