Murder Me, Monster

Muere, Monstruo, Muere

Greek Premiere
A headless body that is found in a remote region by the Andes Mountains agitates the local society, and particularly three people shaping a love triangle: David, the main suspect, who claims that “a monster” did it; Francisca, his wife; and Cruz, her lover and the policeman who handles the case. Yet this is merely the (triangular) tip of the iceberg in an absurdly geometrical, settled world, where the banal lives side by side with the unreal. A horror film where “horror” is nothing but the inverted image of freedom.
