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 - think bondage, torture, zombies…and governmental corruption. Hernán and Gabriela, are going to a motel without realizing that inside the room, behind the mirror, there is something waiting for them. Lucio and Paulo have a plan to swap girlfriends without realizing what will really happen. A group of friends are watching a snuff movie ignoring that the real terror is sitting next to them. Juan attends a date with Sonia thinking he is going to get laid, when he realizes that she has bigger plans for him. 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

“Artsploitation Films, I have come to the understanding that they are all on serious drugs. The films they release are so out there at times, that you really wonder what exactly was the filmmaker thinking. Even more far fetched is what was the studio thinking to sign it. Do not, read this as any kind of negative. This is a huge positive for the studio. One thing is for sure, they do not understand what the terms “ boring” or “ mainstream” are, and fucking thank god. While, Terror 5 is predictable and the ending leaves a lot to be desired, the journey is fucked. ..This is a film that needs a theater to show it and the audience to watch it. I will say this film is worth a watch, but have realistic expectations.” – Wicked Channel

“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

“Sharp camerawork and great cinematography charges the atmosphere with chills.” – ReviewsByAmosLassen

“A very interesting genre bender that’s at the same time playing with various horror tropes and serving as social commentary and political satire, and as the stories are not only intertwined but the film also shifts from one into the other without clear breaking point, one never knows what one’s up for and what to expect next, making this a rather fascinating experience – which is most certainly also helped by a very stylish and atmospheric directorial effort that includes some grotesque imagery and gore where gore is due, and by a very solid cast. Good macabre fun for sure! – SearchMyTrash

“…”digs into the depths of quivering human interaction and the immorality of their choices that inevitably leads them toward their own gruesome destruction. The human thirst for flesh, morbid curiosity, and unflinching corruption is well laced throughout and that’s the real terror behind the surface level macabre…As far as Argentinian horror anthologies go, Terror 5 leads the pack with directors, Sebastian and Federico Rotstein, pulling from familiar filmic influences and gutter cravings with turnaround consequences and mortal coil tussles. Schematically, Terror 5 has profound leap frogging narratives that challenge the conventional way we view anthologies or overall films, creating a bit of havoc on the tale or tales at hand.” – ItsBlogginEvil

“Actually a terrific film. The psycho-sexual aspects recall Pier Paolo Pasolini, while the gore recalls the work of Dario Argento. There is an undercurrent of rage here; oppression by authority figures permeates all of the stories. People are either pushed to violence, or are subsumed by the violence of their oppressors. It is rare that a horror film is as politically astute as this one is. If you’re willing to put up with reading the titles, you are likely to find this a worthy investment of time. If you like your horror with a healthy dose of kinky sex, you’re definitely going to need to look this one up.” – Cinema365

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.”
