It's a real slobber knocker!
5 June 2015 | by (Boise, ID) – See all my reviews

I watched El Gigante at Crypticon Seattle a couple weeks back. I felt like I'd been pile-driven and laid out for the pin. It was fast paced, brutal, and elicited the same dread and mania as House of 1000 Corpses and Texas Chainsaw. Luchagore Productions is a small (but fierce!) studio out of Canada that I expect great things from. El Gigante is definitely worth a watch and keep an eye on these film makers. Otherwise, you may find yourself drop kicked and made into asada before you see them coming. They hope to turn this into a full feature, and I am keeping my fingers crossed. Gigante delivers a solid chop to the chest, and leaves you wanting more.
