After his wife suddenly commits suicide, octogenarian Manuel (Zorion Eguileor) starts behaving strangely, much to the distress of his family and his increasingly independent granddaughter. His family is confused and angry, and as the temperature in Madrid reaches record heights, it appears that Manuel isn't the only senior citizen preparing for something big. All the elderly folk are acting suspicious, and they all seem to know something the young ones don't. In their contemporary take on INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, featuring some stone-cold, impressive moments that linger long after the film is over, co-directors Raúl Cerezo and Fernando González Gómez weave the small story of a single family into something bigger, weirder and a lot scarier. Combining body horror and science fiction with a commentary on how society treats its elders, THE ELDERLY is the latest in a new wave of eerie, high-concept Spanish genre films that confirm there's something truly paranormal brewing on the peninsula.
