To call [CARGO] simple is to undermine the word “simple”. It’s less than that. It’s a single-location film equivalent to BURIED, PHONE BOOTH or LOCKE, but with zero ambition and unconditionally misguided.
After headlining the three HOBBIT epics for Peter Jackson, Martin Freeman has traveled into the darker, more personal spaces of the genre with CARGO and GHOST STORIES. He talks about both in this exclusive RUE MORGUE chat.
Not to be confused with the Martin Freeman-starring zombie drama, [CARGO] is a confinement thriller in the BURIED mold set for release in August. Read on for the info, key art and trailer, plus info on the novelization and the soundtrack by a member of cult group Tangerine Dream.
These filmmakers prove most impressively that you don’t have to spill a lot of guts when you can bring heart and soul to the zombie realm.
An Australian horror film starring GHOST STORIES’ Martin Freeman, from a producing team including THE BABADOOK’s Kristina Ceyton and Jeff Harrison, is coming to Netflix and the Tribeca Film Festival this spring. Jump past the jump to see the new trailer and poster.
