Chances are you’ve never heard of The Untamed. It was quietly released this summer and just hit Blu-ray this week. But once you see this behind the scenes clip, we think that’ll change.
Outside of one or two shots, the trailer for The Untamed doesn’t really reflect the movie’s title. There’s some drama going on here. Some frank discussions of sexuality. Pretty tame stuff. And then... what the HELL is that weird, slimy thing?
A single, silent shot of a meteor in space. A naked woman with something long and slimy crawling over her leg. Those are the first two shots of director Amat Escalante’s The Untamed and the best part about them is how they feel totally unrelated to what follows.
