UK PREMIERE - The first in ‘The Fear Collection’, spawned from the darkest
depths of Spanish icon Álex de la Iglesia’s feverish imagination, is a shocking
fable about tourism. Tourists are blighting Venice and their arrogant behaviour
has unleashed the rage of The Floating City locals fed up with sightseers
pouring off enormous cruise liners. To halt the invasion, some have got
organized, giving free bloody rein to their instinct for survival. And as
Carnival season begins a group of Spaniards arrive determined to have fun,
oblivious to the problems around them and the fact they will soon be fighting
for their lives.
