When Roman’s girlfriend disappears, he expects to find her in the arms of another man. And find her he does, but there is no lover on the scene, only a pair of crazy old men keeping her locked away in the basement of their crumbling mansion. Armed with wild-eyed political ideals and case after case of decades-old and highly unstable dynamite, the villainous duo are conducting illicit experiments on a string of young women lured to their home via the internet. If Roman cannot free his young love, she is likely to end up in pieces, thanks in part to a generous slathering of nitro-glycerine. A delirious old school horror picture with the most memorable villains in years at its core, Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s COLD SWEAT was a huge hit at SXSW thanks to its creator’s wild imagination and sense of showmanship. Loaded with unforgettable characters and stylish action, COLD SWEAT is a shocker that never fails to entertain.
“Like The Wages of Fear crossed with Saw, with touches of The People Under the Stairs.”
– Screen Junkies
“You should no doubt appreciate the utter lunacy of Cold Sweat’s gritty nightmarish tale and have as much of a blast (pun intended) as I did with it.”
– Dread Central
