Your average slasher, 2 November 2002

Yeah, it's not a movie that changed the genre or something, but it shows that Mexicans can get into this genre! When the slasher genre was about to die in the early 90's, Mexicans tried to get into this field. And it had a decent success considering that horror movies weren't very popular at that time. "LADRONES DE TUMBAS" has the elements that are required to make a slasher : plenty of gore, creepy settings, a demonic killer, and of course hot girls.

The acting is quite good, featuring Mexican leyend Mario Aldama, and a gorgeous Erika Buenfil among others.

There's not much to say about this movie, but sure it worths 2 bucks for a rental. This is an enjoyable film, but don't expect too much. The creepy ending is very good!
