Check out the trailer for upcoming Spanish Netflix horror-thriller THE PLATFORM.
Set in a dystopian future, the film follows a new inmate (Ivan Massagué) of a prison housing vertically stacked cells. The prisoners watch hungrily as food descends from above — feeding the upper tiers, but leaving those below ravenous and radicalized.
The class warfare allegory is pretty clear, and it could work a treat here. It’s a very good trailer, teasing a grimy aesthetic and some pretty macabre turns as the situation escalates. Keen to check it out. This marks the feature debut for short film director Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia.
The Platform hits Netflix on March 20.
