Director: Joyce Michel Grau
Cast: Paulina Gaitau, Alan Chavez, Francisco Barreiro
A quality arthouse horror from Mexico that not only delivers the chills and churned stomach but plenty of swipes at society, all in a slimmed-down style that never detracts.
Barreiro plays Alfredo who must take over the household chores along with sister Sabrina (Gaitau) when the head of the family dies.
All well and good, except this is a dysfunctional family of urban cannibals who seek out citizens to feast on.
Lots of strongly drawn and colourful characters and a film that is well out of the mainstream and richly entertaining … pass the neighbour, please!
Star Rating: 4/5
