Cold Sweat movie scene

Terror grows in Cold Sweat.

Cold Sweat is 2010 horror-thriller movie from Spain’s Adrián García Bogliano, a writer/director who’s made a name for himself over recent years with such genre efforts as 36 Steps, I’ll Never Die Alone, Watch ’em Die and Rooms for Tourists.

Cold Sweat opens on Roman (Facundo Espinosa, The Motorcycle Diaries), a young guy who sets out to find his missing girlfriend Jackie (Camila Velasco). Roman expects to find her in the arms of another man, but when he and a friend finally track her down, there is no lover on the scene, but only a pair of demented old men who keep her locked away in the basement of their crumbling mansion. Armed with crazed, reactionary political ideals—along with a stash of highly unstable explosives—the villainous duo  conducts nasty experiments on a string of young women who are lured to their home via the Internet. And dousing Jackie with nitroglycerin is only one of their many demented ideas, putting both she and Roman in a potentially deadly situation. Actually, Jackie’s got a lot more to lose than Roman as she’s the one who must carefully strip off all of her nitro-soaked clothes.

Cold Sweat (or Sudor Frio in its original Spanish) played at a handful of genre film festivals around the world, including the 2011 SXSW fest. It’s premiering in the U.S. on DVD.
