Plot Summary
When his father dies unexpectedly, Alfredo (Francisco Barreiro) must step up and become the man of the house, providing for his mother and siblings by putting food on the table. This would be a tough obligation for any teenager to shoulder, but things are worse for Alfredo because of his family's special diet: human flesh. Now, Alfredo must stalk and kidnap victims for his cannibal family's ritualistic murders without drawing the notice of police. It's a gruesome task that may destroy him.

  • The very woozy nature of the story itself works. show more

  • Morbidly funny art-house horror tale. show more

  • Like zombie auteur George Romero at his best, Grau locks his sights on his social commentary of choice and goes after it with the zeal of a 19-year-old cannibal girl sinking an ax into the skull of her next meal. The result is messy, but it makes more than a meal. show more
