Spanish director Carlota Pereda’s chilling, debut horror film follows Sara, the teenager daughter of a local butcher who is tormented by her classmates because of her weight. After she witnesses the violent abduction of her bullies by a mysterious stranger, Sara struggles to decide whether to intervene or leave the merciless teens to their apparent fate.
A social commentary on the consequences of online bullying, Pereda’s visceral film brings Carrie-like vengeance to a small Spanish town, with bloody butcher shop scenes that underscore the violent threat of a serial killer on the loose and the revenge fantasies of a tormented teenager.
World Premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and Winner of Best Horror Picture at the 2022 Fantastic Festival. Part of our New Visions, New Voices series.
