Raúl Cerezo, a highly regarded figure in the world of Spanish fantastical short films (Años Cero), has co-directed his feature debut, La pasajera (lit. “The Passenger”), together with Fernando González Gómez (Zombie World 2). The colourful array of passengers who will be travelling in the shared minivan in which the film unfolds comprises Ramiro Blas ([REC] 4: Apocalypse [+leggi anche:

) and Alucine (the HBO series 30 Coins, helmed by Álex de la Iglesia). The film promises to be a personal, entertaining and surprising work, which switches from comedy to horror at the drop of a hat.

In the words of González Gómez, the movie is about “a terrifying journey at breakneck speed, with which we are seeking to create an immersive experience for the viewer, who will become just another occupant of our Ebro minivan”. According to his colleague Cerezo, “It’s as if you started off in a Luis García Berlanga film, jumped into a John Carpenter one and ended up in another one by David Cronenberg, if you imagine that the latter two auteurs were from Cuenca and Albacete, respectively. Making your debut like this is a tremendous gift, and being able to do so with so much freedom is inconceivable,” he sums up.

The feature was shot in Navarre over the course of five weeks (from 24 August-30 September), and the finishing touches are now being put to its post-production. La Pasajera is a distressing horror flick that relies chiefly on its characters and unfolds amidst a stifling atmosphere. It tells the story of a minivan shared by various passengers, which runs over a rambler who is hiking at night on a B road; after bringing her on board the vehicle to take her to the nearest hospital, it doesn’t take long for the occupants to realise that they only need obey one clear rule: don’t sit next to her.

The screenplay was penned by Luis Sánchez-Polack, based on a previous script by Asier Guerricaechevarría (70 Big Ones [+leggi anche:

). The original storyline is by co-director Raúl Cerezo himself. La Dalia Films is thus embarking on a new fiction feature after its two most recent productions: Vasy’s Odyssey and Estándar, which has just been released in theatres. In addition, the firm is also in the middle of post-production with Ama, the feature debut by young filmmaker Júlia de Paz, partially shot just after the lockdown prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

La pasajera is being produced by Persons Films, La Dalia Films, SG Producciones and Eye Slice Pictures. It will be released at some point in 2021.
