A man eager to make amends with his ex-girlfriend stumbles upon a bizarre torture cult in this thriller from Argentinean director Adrian Garcia Bogliano]. After going through a bad breakup, a twenty-something man feels bad about how things ended, and wants to talk with his ex. However, finding her turns out to be difficult and she doesn't answer his messages, so he asks one of his best female friends to lend a hand. Using the IP address from her computer, the friends discover the woman was corresponding with a handsome man and appears to have arranged to meet him at a large house on the outskirts of town. However, a visit to the house makes it clear things were not as they seem from the outside; the home belongs to a pair of aging political radicals who have a large cache of old, decaying dynamite and are putting it to use on a number of unsuspecting young women.

Critic Reviews for Cold Sweat (Sudor frío)

All Critics (6)

Cold Sweat is a nonsensical horror film out of Argentina. With a plot so illogical it's hard to describe, it didn't work on any level.

...a seriously misbegotten endeavor...

You should no doubt appreciate the utter lunacy of Cold Sweat's gritty nightmarish tale and have as much of a blast (pun intended) as I did with it.

Dread Central

The ensuing intergenerational clash is a highly volatile mix of The Wages of Fear (1953) and 'torture porn' tropes, with an uncomfortable grounding in political reality.

The plot is nothing new; the presentation sort of is.

Like The Wages of Fear crossed with Saw, with touches of The People Under the Stairs.

Audience Reviews for Cold Sweat (Sudor frío)

A new twist on the torture porn genre, Cold Sweat is a tense thriller that draws upon the history of violence in Argentina for its inspiration. An intelligent, brutal, and gripping film, Cold Sweat keeps you on the edge of your seat but never engages its source material in the critically compelling fashion that it could have. Still, it is a stylish, twisted, and original film that will keep fans of smart horror films engaged throughout its run time.

If you like the torture horror thing than this is right up your alley....I on the other hand don't really care for those types of flicks but this one held my intrest enough with some humor and alittle intelligence.
