The end of October rapidly approaches. That means the days are getting shorter, the leaves are falling off the trees, and in the right light the naked branches look like gnarled, bony fingers clawing at the grey sky. SPOOKY. It’s the perfect time of year for hot toddies and a good ol’ scary movie marathon. In case ABC Family’s constant looping of Hocus Pocus isn’t doing it for you, our producer Angie Mendoza – a SERIOUS horror film fanática – has put together a list of the 10 quintessential Hispanic horror films that will rob you of sleep for weeks. Check ‘em out!
1. TESIS (Spain, 1996)
This is Alejandro Amenabar‘s directorial debut. You’ve seen his other films Open Your Eyes or its crappy remake Vanilla Sky. Or how about his American directorial debut, The Others (also an amazing Latin Horror film). This flick is about a college student who finds a snuff film in a secret room at her university in Madrid. She teams up with the resident shock film aficionado to try and figure out the source and makers of this film.
