What's the last good Brazilian horror film you saw? Was it a Coffin Joe piece?
Perhaps FEAR THERAPY (TERAPIA DO MEDO) could be your answer...a new supernatural thriller from Roberto Moreira (CONTRA TODOS, PAULISTA, above) that indeed hails from the land of Rio. The film is in early pre-production, so much so that we don't even have any kind of look at the film at this time. We do have a translated synopsis for the import below, hinting at a science-vs-evil angle we don't often see. Give her a read and make the call...
Clara, 27, enters a catatonic state after losing her husband and daughter in a terrible car crash. Fernanda, Clara’s twin sister, suffers from chronic insomnia and is admitted to a rehab clinic, where she is treated with hypnosis. During a trance, she sees the accident and goes after her sister. The traditional methods to the cure of catatonia seem not to work on Clara, who is getting worse day by day, but Fernanda finds a possibility of a cure in research done by late Dr. Afonso. On the Doctor’s old lab, surrounded by supernatural events, the boundaries between life and death, between past and present, surpass the scope of fear.
