Virus :32 is the latest zombie thriller to come to horror streaming service Shudder. The film is the latest feature from Latin American horror maestro Gustavo Hernandez, whose feature debut The Silent House (La casa muda) premiered out of Cannes’ Directors Fortnight in 2010 to international acclaim, and was followed by the 2014 Fantastic Fest premiere Local God (Dios Local) and 2018 Tribeca premiere You Shall Not Sleep (No dormirás).
In Virus :32, a virus breaks out and a chilling massacre rages through the streets. The sick become hunters, and only calm their fever by unscrupulously killing all those not yet infected. Unaware of this, Iris (Paula Silva, In The Quarry) and her daughter spend the day in the sports club where Iris works as a security guard. When night falls, their fight for survival beings.
Their only hope of salvation arrives when they discover that after each attack, the infected seem to stop for 32 seconds of calm before attacking again. It is an interesting premise that separates this zombie film from others. Based on the trailer, Virus :32 seems to have all the zombie tropes people love along. We will see in a few weeks how it all comes together.
Virus :32 premieres on Shudder April 21
