While most of the residents of a small Argentinian town attend a funeral procession following a tragic building collapse, the few who do not will face terrors of their own in this mashup of urban legends from brothers-filmmakers Sebastián and Federico Rotstein. Think bondage, torture, zombies…and governmental corruption. Juan goes on a date with Sonia to a school where students get even with teachers. Luco and Paulo create an elaborate plan to swap girlfriends. Two lovers escape into a motel for a night of passion, while a group of friends enjoys a snuff film. As their primal urges distract them all, local officials are judged innocent of the neglect that caused the building collapse—and then the horror really begins.
Reviews

“Terror 5 demands repeated viewings to fully grasp the scope and genius of the film, which is thought-provoking and confounding at times, but entirely enticing and compelling.” – WeAreIndieHorror

Director Interview

Sebastian and Federico Rotstein’s Director’s Statement: “A bunch of people immersed in their own world without realizing that everything else is falling apart. We were interested in exploring that idea through different situations almost happening on real time. Then, we wanted to add an alteration, a strange and ambiguous time perception. And we wanted to explore it in the most cinematic way. A story told by the way it is shot by using narratives shots instead of descriptive ones.  Although it is called Terror 5, we didn’t approach the stories as horror stories. We did it examining each character and each behavior on a specific moment.”
