Utter garbage.
21 December 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Clad in his zombie mariachi costume twenty-one year old Diego is going to a Dia De Los Muertos party.Unfortunately for him he is abducted, sacrificed and resurrected by the Aztec Gods of Death and Destiny."El Muerto" is easily one of the worst so-called "horror" films I have seen recently.It's dull and completely unscary.There is no gore and some CGI effects look really poor.The film is based on the comic book series from Javier Hernandez,which I never read.The production values are surprisingly high and the cinematography is great,but the lack of suspense,gore and nudity can't be forgiven.Avoid this boring mess like the plague-you'll thank me later.3 out of 10 and that's being kind.
