ONLY for Serious Fans of Horror

Political Horror of the Most Extreme Kind!
Trauma Is a Provocative and Explicit Film That Bloodily Explores Chile's Violent Past and Its Aftermath
Available on Blu-ray, DVD, Cable and Digital HD October 23rd

"The most controversial extreme horror offering in recent memory"
-- Screen Anarchy

We love our film critics so we need to warn you:
Unless you are a horror fan or critic who can take anything a filmmaker throws at you, we'd advise you to skip this release - delete! We didn't even submit it to iTunes - they'd probably ban us.

So....you've been warned. 

Artsploitation Films has announced the US and Canadian release of the eye-popping Chilean horror film Trauma from director Lucio A. Rojas. The film is plays out the horrors committed by the Pinochet regime of the 1970s with the visceral cycle of abuse that followed its fall. Trauma will be available  October 23rd on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Vudu and more.

Trauma is as much of a political statement as it is a tasteless kick in the guts. The film is full of brutal violence, beautiful women and a madman who enjoys inflicting as much trauma as he has been through himself. Expertly made...intense, memorable and violent." - PopHorror 

A shocking, brutal tale that blends the dark history of Chile’s recent past with the modern Chile of today. The two worlds clash when a group of women venture to the idyllic countryside for a weekend of fun. But their outing soon turns nightmarish a man, himself a victim of torture in the hands of the government, unleashes his pent-up rage on them. The women must fight for their very lives in this film of violence, sexual assault and redemption. Never gratuitous, director Rojas exposes the horrors of politics with evil that can lie within the soul of ordinary men.
