One of the coolest short films I saw this year was Gigi Saul Guerrero’s “El Gigante,” a Texas Chain Saw Massacre-esque cannibal slasher with a Luchador wrestler as the centerpiece.
Out of the Frontieres International Co-Production Market at Fantasia, Raven Banner has boarded Luchagore Productions’ feature-film version of El Gigante, which tells the story of 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.
Here’s the trailer for the short that played the Viscera Film Festival in Los Angeles earlier this year.
Gigi is going to break out with this feature, I guarantee it.
