It is a low-budget black and white film strong>, which delves into the most basic terrors of human beings, with politics and journalism as a backdrop. Here you can see the trailer:
This is the last broadcast of “60 Minutes Before Midnight”, the most watched journalistic program on television. The star of the night is Adrián Marcato, who hides a conspiracy that links the government to occult and satanic practices.
The program’s journalists are immersed in a race against time to locate an article that would allow Marcato to confess live. They will use his trade, but also much less common methods.
A journalistic film with touches of classic horror where the filming in black and white connects with the way we remember our worst nightmares. It also highlights its real-time narration, which generates even more tension.
