Mosquito State trailer released

From director Filip Jan Rymsza and co-written by Rymsza and Mario Zermeno, the masterful allegorical psycho-thriller Mosquito State will be exclusively on Shudder.

An official selection of the Venice Film Festival in 2020, Mosquito State was awarded the Bisato d’Oro for Best Cinematography as well as Best Special Effects at the Sitges Film Festival 2020.

On the eve of the 2007 financial crisis, in an austere penthouse overlooking Central Park, isolated and obsessive Wall Street data analyst Richard Boca (Beau Knapp) sees ominous patterns: His computer models are behaving erratically, as are the swarms of mosquitos breeding in his apartment, an infestation that attends his psychological meltdown.

On Wall Street, they’re called “quants”—the intense data analysts whose mathematical prowess can make the difference between a fortune and a flop. Consumed with his work, Richard doesn’t often stray from his office or apartment. But when Richard decides to go to a company party, hosted by his ruthless boss (Olivier Martinez), he makes two acquaintances: the mysterious Lena (Charlotte Vega) and one pesky mosquito, both of which take root in his mind, altering his existence in profound ways.

Finding common ground between Franz Kafka, David Cronenberg and Mary Harron’s American Psycho, director-screenwriter Filip Jan Rymsza emerges with a new kind of body horror, set during a single week of an exquisitely rendered pre-crash 2007 replete with signs of socio-political and economic rot. A hypnotic plunge into the fragile mentality of an individual who can see patterns long before the rest of us. “Cronenberg meets Kafka… commandingly creepy psycho-horror… that multiplies into a nightmarish infestation before vengefully claiming its sacrifice, in a poetic surrender that evokes Virginia Woolf.” David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter “the movie promises that it’s going to take us for a ride, and Rymsza delivers on that promise,” Steve Pond, The Wrap “holds your attention like a bite that you can’t stop yourself from scratching even though you know it’s only going to make things worse.” David Ehrlick, Indiewire.

In addition to Knapp (The Good Lord Bird, Seven Seconds), the film stars Charlotte Vega (Wrong Turn, American Assassin), Jack Kesy (The Outpost, Deadpool 2), and Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful, Before Night Falls). Mosquito State was produced by Rymsza and Alyssa Swanzey for Royal Road Entertainment and Włodzimierz Niderhaus for WFDiF.
