Bosque Macabro!

It appears that the feature anthology horror film "Solitude", for which I provided sound edit and mix a couple of years ago, has appeared in its first foreign language dub (thanks to the M&E I also provided). It's still not available anywhere in English, but ladies and gentlemen-- at least those of you who speak Portugese-- give it up for "Bosque Macabro"!

The title translates as "Macabre Forest"; it's my understanding that titles like "Ghoulish Grove" are floating around as well. The art for the back cover of the DVD (pictured above) contains two photos (upper and lower right) which, as far as I'm aware, have nothing to do with the film.

The Portugese actors all sound about 10 years older than their English-speaking counterparts, and the male characters have all been dubbed in deep, authoritative voices. I know this from witnessing one of the many pirated uploads the filmmakers are currently swatting down. But I certainly don't endorse this mode of viewing; legitimate DVD purchase is of course recommended for those who wish to experience the film in its true Portugese incarnation.
