From the folks that gave us the awesome The Evil Dead in 60 Seconds, comes an all new short which takes its aim at some luchador action with a little twist, a cannibalistic twist and it looks fantastic! But, don’t just take my word for it as we have scored the first official trailer for the short so you guys can take a peek yourself.
The short is directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero, Co-Directed by Luke Bramley and Produced by Raynor Shima.
Synopsis: After attempting to cross the US/Mexico border in search of a better life, Armando (Edwin Perez) awakens in an unknown room, his body broken down and a Lucha Libre mask sewn into his neck. He attempts to escape, but is surrounded by a sadistic family, who watch him with hungry eyes. The only chance for Armando’s survival in this hellish nightmare is to last in a wrestling match against the most terrifying villain of all: GIGANTE!
El Gigante is based upon Shane Mckenzie’s book “Muerte Con Carne.” Well, it’s actually based upon the first chapter, and in the near future they plan to create a feature film version which will focus on the rest of the book in question.
