First Trailer: Folklore-inspired Anthology, “MÉXICO BÁRBARO”

Eight segments inspired by Mexican folklore and legend comprise upcoming anthology MÉXICO BÁRBARO. Find your first look at the film, featuring work from WE ARE WHAT WE ARE’s Jorge Michel Grau, via its gory trailer below.

Directed by Jorge Michel Grau, Aarón Soto, Edgar Nito, Gigi Saúl Guerrero, Isaac Ezbán, Ulises Guzmán, Laurette Flores and Lex Ortega, 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,” says producer Mayro Castro. “The boogeyman, trolls, ghosts, creatures, Aztec sacrifices, and of course our most beloved tradition, Day of the Dead, immersed in urban and rural stories are some of the issues that make up this anthology.”

MÉXICO BÁRBARO is set to World Premiere this October 8th at the renowned 47th Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. Below, find the first trailer, as well as a series of posters for segments “Lo que me importa es lo de adentro”  (What matters It’s on the inside); “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead); “La Cosa mas Preciada” (That Precious Thug) and “Tzompantli”. The clip debuted at Twitch. For more on the film, visit its official Facebook here.
