Mexico Barbaro II the sequel to the iconoclastic seminal cornerstone
of Mexican horror, Mexico Barbaro (2014), expands now new frontiers
beyond the excesses of its predecessor.
9 Mexican Directors come together to continue exploring
the relentlessly brutal and darkest vein of Mexican
popular culture, folk and urban tales.
From the seemingly innocent stories told by grandmothers
to their grandchildren passed on from generation to generation,
to spectral mysteries, crack cocaine craving monsters,
Ancestral Indian bloody culinary rites, desert wondering
Tales that are whispered, believed in blind faith, splattered in blood.
