The trailer for the extreme shocker What the Waters Left Behind has been watched over 4 million times since it dropped a couple months ago—and it’s easy to see why. It begins like a vacation advert from a local Tourists’ Bureau, but we begin to suspect something may be off when The Man in Black, aka Johnny Cash, is heard singing in the background. Suddenly, we’re thrust into a nightmare world that looks like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre on steroids! Have a look-see:
Official Synopsis: The plot revolves around a group of young people that take a trip to the ruins in order to film a documentary about Epecuen. Ignoring the warnings, and after a brief tour, they get stranded in the abandoned village. Contrary to what they thought, they begin to realize that they are really not alone.
Epecuén was one of the most important touristic villages of Argentina. Thousands of people concurred, attracted by the healing properties of its thermal waters. On November 10th 1985, a huge volume of water broke the protecting embankment and the village was submerged under ten meters of salt water. Epecuén disappeared. Thirty years later, the waters receded and the ruins of Epecuén emerged exposing a bleak and deserted landscape. The residents never returned.
