horror anthology from five Latin filmmakers

A trailer has arrived online for Satanic Hispanics, a horror anthology that’s set to have its world premiere at Fantastic Fest later this month. The film consists of segments that were directed by five different Latin filmmakers: Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead), Eduardo Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project), Demián Rugna (Terrified), and Gigi Saul Guerrero (Into the Dark: Culture Shock).

Coming to us from Epic Pictures and Dread, Satanic Hispanics was written by Alejandro Mendez, Demian Rugna, Adam Cesare, and Lino K. Villa. The film begins when

police raid a house in El Paso, full of dead Latinos, and with only one survivor: The Traveler. When the cops him to the station for questioning, he tells them about the horrors he’s encountered in his long time on this earth.

Efren Ramirez, Greg Grunberg, Jonah Ray Rodrigues, Jacob Vargas, Hemky Madera, Patricia Velasquez, Demián Salomón, Luis Machin, and Ari Gallegos star.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly about Satanic Hispanics, Mendez said, “What we wanted to focus on were myths and legends of Latin America, because we felt like so many Hispanic projects are about cartels and the border. But I do want to make this clear: it is a movie for everybody. It is an English language film. I wanted to make a fun horror movie that just happened to be about Latin lore and I think we’ve done that.

Mendez and Brugues produced Satanic Hispanics with Patrick Ewald.

This movie sounds like fun to me, and I’ve been following Mendez’s career ever since his feature debut Killers was released in the late ’90s, so I will definitely be watching Satanic Hispanics.
