Check Out This Incredibly Chilling Spanish Horror Short

Last year at the Etheria Film Festival in Los Angeles, I had the pleasure of viewing the horror short DE NOCHE Y DE PRONTO by filmmaker Arantxa Echevarria.

The short has […]

It comes from filmmaker / actress / cinematic jack-of-all-trades Gigi Saul Guerrero, whose previous horror shorts such as DIA DE LOS MUERTOS and MEXICO BARBARO have been killing (pun intended) on the festival circuit these last few years. It’s only 2 […]
