[Trailer] First Look at Gigi Saul Guerrero’s El Gigante!
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.
