Dread’s Satanic Hispanics, the first all-Latino horror anthology from five indie-horror filmmakers, all hailing from a different corner of Latin America, kicks off the start of Hispanic Heritage Month releasing in North American theaters 14 September.
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.
Directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero (Bingo Hell), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), Demián Rugna (Terrified), Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead), and Eduardo Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project), Satanic Hispanics is a deep dive into Latin folklore fused through a genre lens, spotlighting Hispanic talent both in front and behind the camera. The film has also received festival accolades including the Best Director award at Fantastic Fest 2022.
