Peruvian Horror LA ENTIDAD Releases A New Full-Length Trailer
By Ernesto Zelaya Miñano

Back in September, a teaser trailer was released for next year’s La Entidad, the latest stab by a Peruvian filmmaker at the horror genre. Nothing much was known about the movie then, other than it was director Eduardo Schuldt’s jump to horror films after working in animated films like The Dolphin: Story of a Dreamer (2009) and Freedom Force (2013), and that it featured a lot of creepy stuff happening at a cemetery.

Now, a new, full-length trailer has been released, and it gives a much better idea of what the movie is about. It’s another entry in the found footage genre, obviously taking a page from 2013’s Cementerio General, already the forebearer of these types of movies in Peru. While similar in some ways, this looks a bit more brutal and bloody in its intentions, as well as more CGI-heavy.

Local film news website Cinencuentro provides a synopsis:

"Four film students working on a documentary about Internet discover that all their subjects are deceased; their investigation takes them into the depths of the so-called 'Deep Web' (a non-indexed part of cyberspace housing illegal material), where a supernatural curse is unleashed upon them."

Billed as the country’s first 3D horror movie, La Entidad opens in January 2015. Watch the new trailer below.
