Close encounters get even closer in Amat Escalante’s (Heli) The Untamed.  A mysterious, tentacled, alien mass just crash landed in a barn in rural Guanajuato, Mexico. The remote and foreboding landscape lends to the subtle horror of the film, as its gloomy protagonists quickly discover the tentacular, orgasmic pleasures — and gruesome pains — of the mysterious creature.

Amongst the protagonists in this intergalactic erotica is the young Ale, who lives an uninteresting and dissatisfied life with her brutish husband, Ángel, who she suspects is unfaithful. Ale keeps close ties with her brother, Fabian, who works as a nurse in the local hospital. Fabian and Ale quickly befriend the young Veronica after she arrives at the hospital with a suspicious injury. The lives of these four individuals are quickly and divided by family, lust and friendship. But don’t let the space sex distract you, as Escalante’s quiet narrative deftly probes the darker corners of ‘untamed’ human longing.
