Horror movie director José is adrift in a sea of doubt and drugs. As his belated second feature nears completion, his reclusive bubble is popped by two events, a sudden reappearance from an ex-girlfriend and a package from past acquaintance Pedro: a reel of Super-8 film, an audiotape and a door key. From there, the boundaries of time, space and sexuality are erased, as José is once more sucked into Pedro’s vampiric orbit. Together, they attempt the ultimate hallucinogenic catharsis through a Möbius strip of filming and being filmed.

Long considered a cult classic, Arrebato is the masterwork of filmmaker and graphic designer Iván Zulueta. A genre-defying film that rivals the best work of David Lynch and David Cronnenberg, Zulueta’s final feature film marks a major turning point in post-Franco Spanish cinema. (Iván Zulueta, Spain, 1979, 115 min.) In Spanish with English subtitles
