Sundance ’11: Under the Radar ‘All Your Dead Ones’

Another quasi-horror movie premiering way off the radar at the Sundance Film Festival is Carlos Moreno’s All Your Dead Ones (Todos Tus Muertos), a Spanish-language flick starring Alvaro Rodriguez. In this eerie and fantastically shot tragicomic satire, an ordinary farmer’s morning routine is interrupted when he makes a grim discovery in the middle of his cornfield — a huge pile of dead bodies. Aghast, he reports the mysterious massacre on what happens to be Election Day. When the small-town mayor and police lieutenant take notice, fearful of unleashing a public scandal, they stall and intimidate the farmer and his family. Meanwhile, the sun beats down, and the rotting corpses remain, refusing to be ignored. Check out the trailer and poster art inside.
