Storyline

Bacurau, a small settlement in Brazil's remote backcountry, is shaken by the death of its elderly matriarch. But something strange is happening in the village, and there's little time for mourning. The water supply has been cut off, animals are stampeding through the streets, and empty coffins are turning up on the roadside. One morning, the villagers wake up to find their home has disappeared from satellite maps completely. Under threat from an unknown enemy, Bacurau braces itself for a bloody, brutal fight for survival.

Trivia

In the starting sequences the inscription "Equador" can be read at the back of the water truck. The inscription is a plate identification for the city of Equador,-RN nearby the village of Barra, where the movie was shot. See more »

Goofs

The "hunters" say that they only hunt using vintage weapons, but Udo Kier's character is seen using an M4 with Harris bipod, sniperscope and suppressor - definitely a modern weapon, not vintage. However, he is the local resident (a German immigrant) who hired the American hunters; the contrast is intentional. See more »

Great horror movie, but is not only a horror movie
31 October 2019 | by adecioSee all my reviews

From all the genres that could be present in Bacurau, I think that I mostly like is the suspense. I was more afraid here than in most horror titles had released recently. I was petrified seeing that kids playing with that flashlight. Is it a fact that Kleber Mendonça Filho is definitely a great a director-cinephile, who kind have a lot of things to tell. In addition, I loved the little town, because reminded me the special place where I was born, in Apuiarés (Ceará, Brazil).
