Alejandro Hidalgo's acclaimed supernatural thriller THE HOUSE AT THE END OF TIME will receive its UK DVD release on April 27th through Matchbox Films.
Ruddy Rodriguez (The Living Daylights) stars as Dulce, a mother who lives in an old house with her young children and husband. After terrifying encounters with mysterious apparitions, the ghost of an old woman leaves Dulce a series of messages warning that her husband will kill their children. She desperately tries to avoid this prophecy, but is helpless as the tragedy begins to unfold. Dulce is sentenced to a maximum penalty of imprisonment for a crime she did not commit. Thirty years later, an elderly Dulce returns home on compassionate release. There, with the help of a Priest, she will try to uncover the mystery and tragedy that has tormented her for so long.
The first horror film produced in Venezuela smashed box office records when it was theatrically released in its home territory and has since become the dark horse of the genre festival circuit where it's unique combination of jump out of your seat thrills, pathos and empathy has won over the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide, including Fantasporto in Portugal, Fantasia in Montreal, FrightFest in London and Screamfest LA where it won awards for Best Film and Best Director.
THE HOUSE AT THE END OF TIME was previously released in the USA by MPI on their Dark Sky Films label and a Hollywood studio remake is currently in development.
"A confident, clever spin on the haunted house tale which invites comparisons with Robert Wise’s The Haunting or Alejandro Amenabar’s The Others."
- Rob Daniel, Electric Shadows
"A superbly constructed film with real depth and layers just waiting to be peeled away, with an emotional core often missing from this genre"
- Naila Scargill, Exquisite Terror
"The film is going to draw some comparisons to The Conjuring, The Others and Oculus, but The House at the End of Time is the best of all of those films - an impressive, confident and creepy debut"
- Ryan Turek, Shock Till You Drop.
"Scary as hell...but also has a family centered heart that reminds me of films like Poltergeist.
I strongly recommend this movie to anyone
who loves a great haunting tale"
- Adam Ruhl, Pop Culture Beast
"Intriguing suspense-horror....evokes both ‘The Sixth Sense’ and ‘The Others’"
- Movie Ramblings
"Like The Sixth Sense, The Others and Haunter, Alejandro Hidalgo's feature debut reverse-engineers the tropes and trappings of haunted house gothic"
- Anton Bitel, Grolsch Film Works
