The Untamed Blu Ray|
Celebrated filmmaker Amat Escalante follows up his critically lauded features Heli and Los Bastardos with the award-winning The Untamed, which critics have called ferociously intelligent (Jonathan Romney, Screen) and brilliant, frightening (Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage). Alejandra is a housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel in a small city. Her brother Fabian works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of the mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems. Something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must make peace or suffer its wrath. Escalante's film mixes Lovecraftian science fiction with social commentary as he tackles themes including corruption and social injustice, with a dose of inspiration from Zulawski's Possession, producing a mix that has won acclaim including the Silver Lion at the prestigious Venice Film Festival and Best Director at Austin's Fantastic Fest.

Mexican drama co-written and directed by Amat Escalante. The film follows disillusioned pastry factory worker Ale (Ruth Ramos) who lives with her macho and outspoken husband Angel (Jesus Meza) and their two sons. Her openly gay brother Fabian (Eden Villavicencio) works as a nurse at the local hospital, and, unbeknownst to Ale, is also having a secret affair with Angel. With an already complex family dynamic becoming increasingly difficult to handle, the sudden arrival of Veronica (Simone Bucio) complicates the situation yet further when she informs them that there is a mysterious force which lurks in an isolated cabin in the nearby woods which may be able to solve their problems and change their lives forever.
