Satanic Hispanics (Canadian Premiere! Filmmaker Q&A)
9:30pm - Friday, Nov 25, 2022
SATANIC HISPANICS is an anthology of five short films from some of the leading Latin filmmakers in the horror genre, spotlighting Hispanic talent both in front and behind the camera. When police raid a house in El Paso, they find it full of dead Latinos, and only one survivor. He’s known as "The Traveler," and when they take him to the station for questioning, he tells them those lands are full of magic and talks about the horrors he's encountered in his long time on this earth, about portals to other worlds, mythical creatures, demons and the undead... Stories about Latin American legends.
Winner, Best Horror Director(s), Fantastic Fest 2022
"A horror anthology that celebrates Hispanic heritage and produces an eclectic mix of tales that take bold, diverse swings. That variation provides a strange yet captivating journey." (Bloody Disgusting)
"There's a fluidity that strikes multiple horror nerves while offering varied experiences from gut-clenching laughs to squirm-in-discomfort scariness." (Slashfilm)
"Although multiple directors were involved, it maintains impressive consistency in both style and tone, each of them adding their own quirks and flourishes without anything jarring." (Eye for Film)
Filmmakers from "Satanic Hispanics" including actor, Marcio Morena, director Gigi Saul Guerrero, producer Raynor Shima, and cinematographer Luke Bramley will be joining in for post-screening Q&A.
Paired with the short film TIGER BY THE TAIL directed by Sharai Rewels.
