pretty good Mexican slasher / zombie movie, 14 December 2006
Author: Zombie_CPA from United States

A man makes a deal with the devil to give the devil a son. A group of Catholics kill now. Now, over 100 years later a group of young grave robbers stumble upon his tomb and unleash the zombie of the man.

This is a pretty good Mexican slasher / zombie movie. There is plenty of blood, a head decapitation, and a nice little intestine scene that is sure to make gore hounds happy. Overall, the story flows smoothly and is pretty decent. About the only part of the story that is a little silly is the girl who must have some sort of psychic powers. She knows that there must be gold below a tomb and she somehow knows not to touch the grave of the antichrist.

The acting was pretty decent. The girls did a decent job of screaming. It is a little hard for me to judge the acting though because I don't speak Spanish. The settings were good. A cemetery always makes a good setting for a horror movie. Overall, I enjoyed this little Mexican slasher / zombie film. Gore hounds and zombie fans should like it.
