México Bárbaro shows the world stories that form a part of our culture, and even some that have haunted us and made us have nightmares since childhood, those ones which took away our innocence. The boogeyman, trolls, ghosts, creatures, Aztec sacrifices, and of course our most beloved tradition, Day of the Dead, immerse in urban and rural stories are some of the issues that make up this anthology.
Reviews [click links to read more]:
” … México Bárbaro at least doesn’t try to unite its eight segments in a way that hardly makes any sense as V/H/S: Viral did, but it definitely lacks the concrete ideas — as well as the brutality and energy — that the best shorts from ABCs of Death 2 have. It’s a welcomed effort that could have been much more powerful.” Eric Ortiz Garcia, Twitch
