The film from Mexican auteur Luis Iga was written by Latina writer Yelyna De Leon and has played to packed houses in Los Angeles, Portland, New York, Denver and Chicago. Now Bruges and Berlin will get its first taste of what critics have called, “a breakthrough,” “smart, funny & very effective horror” film with a “phenomenal storyline” that “delivers on its promise in heaps” and “recalls classics of the genre like ‘Friday the 13th’ and ‘Scream’ but has a voice and style all its own.”
“Our goal was to make a horror/slasher film for a global audience to showcase ‘People of Color’ in lead non-stereotypical roles and we are excited that these two prestigious Horror Film Festivals in Europe agree with us,” said Director and Producer, Luis Iga. “I want to thank Patrick Van Hauwaert (Razor Reel’s Managing Director) and David Ghane (Obscura’s Festival Director) for being pioneers in reshaping how the world sees ‘People of Color’ and Minorities in cinema,” he added.
Writer and Producer, Yelyna De Leon said, “I am very grateful to both festivals for the opportunity to have European audiences see our independent film as our goal was to make a universal horror film with a diverse cast that global audiences could enjoy.”
The rest of the ensemble cast includes Jeanette Samano (“Female Fight Squad,” “Isa”), Chelsea Rendon (“Bright,” “Vida”), Catherine Toribio (“Jane the Virgin”), Kade Wise (“Empire”) and Jordan Diambrini (“The Outfield”). It also features Soledad St. Hilaire (“Beatriz at Dinner”), Kurt Caceres (“Dexter”) and Rolando Molina (“American Dad!”)
