Terrifying!   plays a mute woman working as a makeup artist on a European horror film, who late one night accidentally stumbles upon a group of people making a snuff film on the set of her latest project. Realizing that they’ve been seen, the perpetrators of this awful crime do their best to rid themselves of this loose end, and the film is spent watching Zudina trying to escape their ever-growing clutches without the help of speech to enlist help from others. Inventive and thrilling, this is a freaky movie that never lets up for a second. Features Alec Guinness in one of his last film roles.
