A semi-deserted town, mysterious neighbors and hidden secrets, all combined together make for one creepy viewing. That is the formula for Netflix’s latest horror flick from Chile and directed acclaimed filmmaker Claudia Llosa. Based on the book of the same name by Samanta Schweblin, here we are taking a look at all the Fever Dream cast and figuring out what is really going on in the suspense drama.
The novel, on which the movie is based on, was published in 2014 and later went on to garner critical acclaim. A weird blend of horror and environmental abuse story, the suspense novel was considered to be something standing alone as a genre of one. The same drive and suspense is something the Netflix film is looking to convey in the film.
Though it may be confusing from the trailers, the book and the movie are about a small town and the excess use of toxic agricultural chemicals. Drawing from her own life and visiting farm towns in Argentina, Samanta saw the harm caused to nature and human beings. That story is rolled into horror/suspense drama and here is everything you need to know about Fever Dream cast.

Featuring some great talents from Chile and Argentina, the movie was optioned by Netflix in 2018 and filming began in 2019. Most of the Fever Dream filming locations were located in Chile and the film itself is in Spanish language, the predominant language spoken in Argentina and Chile, the countries near the Antarctica continent.
Casting for the movie was also done in 2019 as director Claudia Llosa was handed the reins. As a female-led movie, two recognizable faces were added to the Fever Dream cast. Famous Spanish actress Maria Valverde was hired as the lead of the film, while Argentinian theatre and TV actress Dolores Fonzi works as her counter balance. The trailer showed off the two ladies and what is going on behind the scene.
Maria Valverde leads the Fever Dream cast as Amanda. The character of Amanda is a city person, a single mother and someone who is looking for a little quiet in her life. So, to find the peace and quiet, the city dweller heads to the country with her daughter. Coming to a new place, she has new neighbors and a secret that surrounds the small community, a secret that may bring trouble for Amanda and her daughter.
The Argentinian actress, Dolores Fonzi is playing Carola in the movie. Carola is the native of the small town that Amanda moves in to and she is also the first neighbor to befriend the mother daughter duo. Carola reveals in the trailer that she was a mother once and had a son. While her son appears to still be alive, Carola says that boy has changed and become someone else, throwing more questions at the viewing audience.
Except for the leading ladies, the Fever Dream cast includes German Palacios as Omar, Guillermo Pfening as Marco, Emilio Vodanovich as David, Guillermina Sorribes Liotta as Nina, Marcelo Michinaux as David, and Cristina Banegas.
