For decades, Mexican fantasy and horror cinema hid in the shadows; wearing a luchador mask, surviving budgets tainted by economic gloom, holding vampires with a nylon thread, receiving the scorn of near-sighted critics and consumption by audiences sunk into tongue-in-cheek appreciation. But things have changed. Throughout the first 20 years of the 21st century, there has been a clear rise in the amount, quality and risk found in Mexican horror and fantasy cinema. Join us for a scenic tour of Mexican genre cinema guided by Morbido Fest's head programmer, Abraham Castillo Flores. Delving beyond luchadores and psychotronica, Abraham unearths the monsters that fomented a distinctive but barely acknowledged corner of our shadow cinematic consciousness.
