If you’re transporting a vehicle full of prisoners, the last thing you want is to be stuck with them in the middle of nowhere.
That’s what happens to the driver (Javier Gutiérrez, Marshland) of a prison van carrying convicts in upcoming Spanish-language Netflix thriller Below Zero. In the middle of the night, driving through a desolate area with freezing temperatures, the vehicle is brutally assaulted. Our bad-luck cop survives and is forced to fortify his position while the con men search for a way to take him out.
The trailer suggests a tense little thriller, and another potential Spanish hit for Netflix following strong films like The Invisible Guest and The Platform. This is the second feature for director and co-writer Lluís Quílez, who made his feature debut with English-language 2014 Julia Stiles horror film Out of the Dark.
Below Zero will be streaming on Netflix from January 29th.
