This week, Netflix quietly released The Wasteland (aka El Paramo, aka The Beast), a new Spanish (English dubbed) horror directed by David Casademunt (Jingle Bells), without any fanfare. After watching the trailer, we can not understand why it didn’t get more promotion. It looks fantastic and creepy as hell.
The film centers on a family living in seclusion in the 19th-century who is visited by an evil being that feeds on its victim’s fear. In the nightmare-inducing trailer, a father tells his children the legend of a tall creature with no eyes that preys upon those who are the most vulnerable.
Stephanie Bursill and Charleen Williams star alongside Inma Cuesta.
