The Untamed Regizat de Amat Escalante
In The Untamed, which tells the tale of a group of troubled people who find solace by engaging in all-consuming intercourse with an irresistible, many-tentacled sex alien — who traveled to Earth on the meteor that made the crater — a fantastical premise collides with Escalante’s solemn realism, making for a quiet, unforgettable mash-up, inspired by director Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession.

Each brief glimpse of the creature’s fleshy, slithering mass imbues the character drama with an aching sexual desire and, as the violent potential of the entity becomes clear, a mounting sense of dread.

Kicking off with a literal climax featuring tentacle penetration puts Escalante in a difficult position to frame The Untamed as a work of suspense. In the scenes that follow, though, he makes it clear that this is no creature feature. Instead, it’s a multi-faceted drama, punctuated by cursory scenes of tentacled ecstasy. In shedding this initial tension, Escalante is able to easily weave scenes of entrancing eroticism into a work built on stark, political images in the social realist tradition.
