Movie Info

Turkish directors The Taylan Brothers (Yagmar and Durul) co-helm The Little Apocalypse, a psychological thriller with a distinctly supernatural twinge. The Taylans weave the narrative around the August 17, 1999 earthquake that rocked Istanbul and massacred thousands. The story opens with an extended family - husband and wife Zeki (Cansel Elcin) and Bilge (Koklukaya), their infant son, their school-age daughter Eda (Serra Gurgunlu) and their nanny Filiz (Binnur Kaya) piling into the family car en route to a holiday in Fethive, southwestern Turkey, where they plan to connect with Bilge's niece and nephew. On the way, however, tragedy strikes in the form of the earthquake. Everyone seemingly emerges unscathed and uninjured, but upon arrival at the resort, a number of seemingly inexplicable catastrophes transpire: the "resort" is built on a mosquito infested swamp, next to a graveyard with the names of the family members on the gravestones; bloodthirsty wolves turn up at night to plague the area; and the locals act decidedly odd. Meanwhile, Bilge begins to suffer from recurrent, terror-stricken nightmares about her dead mother. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
