2017 Projects and Works-in-Progress

Logline

A deranged maniac in a Luchador mask named El Gigante who wrestles his prey to the mat in a grisly entertainment ritual of thrill-packed culinary prep for his cannibalistic family.

Synopsis

Marta, fueled by her passion to find out what happened to her parents, and Felix, who is madly in love with Marta and looking for the right time to propose to her, head out to the United States/Mexico border to film a documentary shedding light on the abuse of illegal immigrants by the United States Border Patrol. After a fight, Marta heads out alone, but finds something much worse than Border Patrol. She is kidnapped, taken to a house whose inhabitants hunt the illegal immigrants as they cross the border, butcher them for their meat, which they then eat themselves and serve out of a taco truck in town. The oldest son Gustavo, aka El Gigante, is a massive, homicidal luchador who batters his victims in a makeshift wrestling ring before slaughtering them. Felix scrambles to find Marta, and when he does, a bloody showdown ensues.
