A shocking, brutal tale that blends the dark history of Chile’s recent past (the violent, repressive military dictatorship of Pinochet) with the seemingly modern and progressive Chile of today. The two worlds clash when a group of women venture to the idyllic countryside for a weekend of fun. But their outing soon turns nightmarish a man, himself a victim of torture in the hands of the government, unleashes his pent-up rage on them. The women must fight for their very lives in this film of shocking violence and sexual assault. Never gratuitous, director Rojas exposes the horrors of politics with the evil that can lie within the damaged soul of man.
Reviews

“Lucio A. Roja’s Trauma is as much of a political statement as it is a tasteless kick in the guts. The film is full of brutal violence, beautiful women and a madman who enjoys inflicting as much trauma as he has been through himself. Expertly made, supreme make up effects and no holds barred, Trauma is one of the most intense, memorable and violent films of 2017.” – pophorror.com

TRAUMA is a raw movie – tough, violent, and dramatic. Although by some of its elements it could get close to the exploitation cinema, we went quite further. Some villains which are not from the present, but other times of Chile’s history. The content is extreme, visceral, strictly for people over 18. But it was the only way to tell a story of this sort.” – Fangoria

“The latest, and likely bloodiest, harshest and most extreme blast of violent horror cinema from Latin America comes in the form of Lucio A. Rojas’ Trauma. Yes, Trauma may prove to be one of the most controversial extreme horror offering in recent memory. Fair warning, we are not making shit up, this is extreme LatAm horror at its peak.  – ScreenAnarchy
