When police raid a house in El Paso, they find it full of dead Latinos, and only one survivor. He’s known as The Traveler, and when they take him to the station for questioning, he tells them those lands are full of magic and talks about the horrors he’s encountered in his long time on this earth, about portals to other worlds, mythical creatures, demons, and the undead…
” …Satanic Hispanics is a fun film that doesn’t feel like it runs for a little under two hours. That length gives each of the filmmakers the time they need to tell their story, but without enough time for padding. It’s also good to see Mendez behind the camera again for the first time in six years, and the first really good thing he’s done since Big Ass Spider.” 4/5, Voices from the Balcony
Satanic Hispanics had its world premiere at Fantastic Fest in September 2022. Thereafter it will be distributed by Dread, a sub-division of Epic Pictures.
