Don't waste your time.....
14 May 2014 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

I had high hopes of seeing a movie along the lines of "Tales from the Hood".

However, all I saw was a very low budget combined with mediocre acting.

All in all, it feels as if this is nothing more than an anti-American/pro-illegal immigration film dressed up as a horror anthology.

Worse, it doesn't even have anything worthwhile to say about immigration other than "Gringos" are evil and shouldn't "mess" with Mexicans.

Not recommended.
