Me encontrarás en lo profundo del abismo
Into the Abyss
As explosions flash in the distance, the rain does not give respite in this part of the city. Under the downpour, a man tries to escape, but the problem is where to. Going through abandoned buildings in search of food and water, Bannon rakes up empty cans and boxes, but all he finds are piercing screams and the permanent threat of them, the demons that came down from the sky. In his odyssey trying to leave the dommed area, the… hero? must put his conscience to the test and redeem himself before the ghosts from his past. On the way, a strange guide from the underworld seems to help him. Set in a biblical-post-apocalyptic scenery, Into the Abyss takes genre cinema towards the transcendental, turning a dystopian escape film into an allegory about the lights and shadows of human beings, as well as their eternal struggle to be free from themselves.
