British distributors Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray director Oriol Paulo's thriller The Body (2012), starring José Coronado, Hugo Silva, Belén Rueda, and Aura Garrido. The release will be available for purchase online in and in shops across the United Kingdom on September 9th.
The Oriol Paulo directed film gained rave reviews when it screened at last year's London Film Festival and stars Belen Rueda (The Orphanage) as the titular Body. Paulo is best known for his writing duties on the critically acclaimed Julia's Eyes (2010) but here makes his feature-length directorial debut which firmly places him as one to watch.
Synopsis: Inspector Jaime is haunted by his own past which is dragged out of the shadows by the disappearance of a body from the morgue. On the case, Jaime must investigate how a corpse can vanish from its freezer without a trace, the only witness being a guard left in a coma cause by indescribable fear.
With his own nightmares driving him to despair, Jaime's only suspect is the dead body's widower, Alex, who maintains his innocence but struggles with inner demons that won't remain hidden. With a body on the loose and strange phenomena occurring, Jaime and Alex are intertwined in a horror that will leave you cold…
Yes! I was hoping for a US release soon but I might just go with this one or even the Spanish one since it also has English subtitles. Love Belen Rueda and I'm sure she did a fine job in this one like in all movies she comes out in.
