"David Lynch, but less scary and more pop...[Arrebato] still shakes with force...an absolute modern classic." —Pedro Almodóvar
"A genuine cult title...deeply eccentric, brooding and mysterious...a hallucinatory, claustrophobic examination of the secret potency of film itself." —Time Out

Arrebato's dimension-shattering blend of heroin, sex, and Super-8 is the final word on cinemania. This towering feat of counterculture was the final feature of cult filmmaker and movie poster designer Iván Zulueta and is Pedro Almodóvar’s favorite horror film! Horror movie director José is adrift in a sea of doubt and drugs. As his belated second feature nears completion, his reclusive bubble is popped by two events: a sudden reappearance from an ex-girlfriend and a package from past acquaintance Pedro: a reel of Super-8 film, an audiotape, and a door key. From there, the boundaries of time, space, and sexuality are erased as José is once more sucked into Pedro’s vampiric orbit. Together, they attempt the ultimate hallucinogenic catharsis through a moebius strip of filming and being filmed.
