Set in the 1940s, Duérmete Niño tells the story of Alma, played by Piercey Dalton (The Open House, Bull), a religious mother of newborn twins who is constantly awakened by the disturbing sound of her crying babies.
Using a radio monitor to check on them from her bedroom, Alma encounters a series of unsettling events that build towards a terrifying finale in which she discovers the horrifying truth about her twins.
Director Freddy Chávez first established his mark on the horror genre with his 2012 release, Shhh, a fantasy/horror short tale about a young boy, Guillermo, who uses his imagination to overcome his bully: a hair-eating monster. This project, praised by Guillermo del Toro for having strong visuals, was part of the "Staff Picks" on Vimeo and achieved cult status with over 143K views on the platform.
The film will premier this Friday, October 25. The short film will debut in full HERE
