“This low-budget homage to Mad Max: Fury Road has all the typical dystopian traits: arid wastelands, sepia tones, gruff apocalyptic shouting. Under clear influence from George A. Romero and Joe Dante, South American horror stalwarts Pablo Parés and Daniel de la Vega have produced a hostile imaginary, an Argentina both primitive and futuristic. The return to the state of nature is infused with dilapidated machinery, the Hobbesian free-for-all manifest through vicious gangs and, more worryingly, hordes of mindless zombies. The anxiety of encroachment persists.— As an exercise in genre tropes, I Am Toxic will undoubtedly delight enthusiasts.” – Joseph Owen / The Playlist
