Overview

Eight Mexican directors unite to bring tales of the most brutally terrifying Mexican traditions and legends to vividly shocking life. MEXICO BARBARO presents haunting stories that have been woven into the fabric of a nation s culture, some passed down through the centuries and some new, but all equally frightening. Stories of boogeymen, trolls, ghosts, monsters, Aztec sacrifices, and of course the Day of the Dead all come together in urban and rural settings to create an anthology that is as original as it is familiar and as important as it is horrifying.

Length 120 minutes

Viewing Notes

The second half finishes stronger and somewhat redeems the first half; but the first half is hard to sit through. My favorite was DOLLS, which also happened to be the turning point from turn-it-off-bad to maybe-there’s-hope. I still wouldn’t recommend anyone bother watching it.
