EFFECTIVE FILM WITH OFFBEAT FLAVOR
10 July 1999 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

LATIN BOYS GO TO HELL is an interesting, and even quite good indie film. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, LBGTH gets a lot of mileage out of its story and its budget. Combining eclectic elements, such as religion, homosexuality, body culture and ethnicity, would have been enough. The director, Ela Troyano also dares to toss in touches of Fiesta Fatal (Festival of the Dead), a psychotic boyfriend and an oft-times hilarious send up of Spanish novellas, to boot. To put it mildly, that's downright ambitious. The story centers around Justin, a gay teen, and the events that surround him. Angel, a cousin from Chicago, arrives. Justin secretly craves his cousin, who falls for Andrea, the friend of a possessive gay man, named Braulio. While events spin out of control, darting from strange, funny or dramatic; LBGTH will challenge your conventional outlook. Definitely worth a look.
