Shock Till You Drop Movie Review - Cold Sweat


While American horror cinema is going through its latest craze of found-footage films hot off the popularity of Paranormal Activity, foreign cinema has been busy cranking out more visceral movies that play to more traditional in-your-face horror. The home invasion brutality of Kidnapped was by and large considered one of the best horror movies of 2011. There was nothing fancy about it but it had a solid storyline with cruel characters with no regard for human life set against the backdrop of a rich family being terrorized nonstop. No one seemed to mind it was subtitled. While the Spanish-language horror flick Cold Sweat is nowhere near as polished as Kidnapped (nor is the plot as developed), it is entertaining and has some originality not found in the current crop of horror being released.
