The Infection Spreads Like Laughter in this Trailer for Phase 7

Phase 7, or as the Spanish say Fase 7, recently had a showing at the Miami International Film Festival. Today, the film debuted at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Phase 7 spoofs the quarantine films, such as: Quarantine, [Rec] etc. One wife is oblivious to the spread of the disease, while a paranoid neighbour attempts to eradicate other tenants to stop the spread of infection. All of these events happen under the bumbling eye of the military. Watch what can go wrong under disease conditions, in this trailer for Phase 7 below.

The synopsis for Phase 7 is here:

"Coco (Daniel Hendler) just moved to his new apartment with 7 months pregnant wife Pipi (Jazmin Stuart) when their building is quarantined, due to the outbreak of a deadly flu. Soon the residents become unexpected enemies, and Coco is forced to join forces with his next-door neighbor, the loony but well prepared and stocked Horacio, to defend the contents of his fridge and to keep his pregnant wife safe. Meanwhile, outside the quarantined building, the world as we knew it is disappearing. No wonder no one came when they dialed 833."

Director/writer: Nicolas Goldbart.

Cast: Daniel Hendler, Jazmin Stuart, Yayo Guridi, and Federico Luppi.
