First up we've got THE RETURNED, which comes from director Manuel Carballo and producer Julio Fernandez. Hatem Khraiche Ruiz-Zorrilla penned the script, which reads a little something like this:
Kate works at the hospital in the Return Unit, helping those who have been infected by the virus that turns people into zombies. Kate’s dedication to her work is absolute, but few people realize that for her it is also a personal matter; Kate’s own husband, Jason, has been returned.
After various brutal and prolific attacks at the hands of Anti-Return groups and rumors that the “Protein” stock is running dangerously low, Kate fears for Jason´s safety. Suspicious of the government’s order that all the returned should report to a secure medical facility ‘for their own safety’, the couple decides to flee, taking with them all the doses of “Return Protein” they have. At no point does the couple imagine that the real threat is a lot closer than they think...
Next up we've got I WILL DIE TONIGHT, which is a thriller heading our way courtesy of helmer Miguel Angel Vivas and producer Julio Fernandez. Alberto Marini penned this one, which reads:
Marcos and his family have found themselves the victims of a cruel fate. He is currently the only suspect in a murder case, his trial is about to begin and the only witness who could save him has disappeared without trace. Marcos discovers something much more sinister is behind all this. Someone has been plotting this revenge for a long time and is planning to see it out until the bitter end…
