The Cabinet Of Dr. Ramirez

Fortnight 1991, Feature film, 1H50

Synopsis

Les vies routinières, émaillées de petits conflits, de Matt et Cathy, deux jeunes cadres ayant brillamment réussi, sont bientôt perturbées par des événements effrayants qui ont probablement un lien avec le mystérieux Dr Ramirez et son acolyte, Cesar le somnambule. Ces derniers surgissent dans le récit de manière aussi surprenante que ces vieilles bâtisses délabrées qui se mêlent aux tours de glace et de verre de ce quartier de Manhattan.
