Tarantino-esque gruesome yet darkly comedic crime thriller drama set in a poverty and crime ridden L.A. neighborhood. Split in three intermingling segments titled "Monsters," "Fiends," and "Thugs", the story follows several desperate seedy characters who all have ties to Teddy, a local mass murdering crime boss and white slaver who kidnaps and murders illegal immigrants for their organs or enslaves them for his prostitution/rape ring. El Monstruo is a failed luchador who never breaks character, suffers from violent blackouts and works as Teddy's top henchman while trying to ignore the various horrifying aspects of the job. He's expecting a baby with Kaylee, a woman given as child to Teddy by her mother Crystal, and hopes that his child will fill the shoes of El Monstruo's legendary and heroic luchador father, something that El Monstruo failed to do and is ridden with guild over it.

All the parts combined ...

If you watch this and it feels like a comic book, with different parts and different heroes, all telling their own story ... well that was the intention of the filmmakers, so you are not far off with that feeling. It may feel messy because of that at times, but it does work overall in being gritty and down and dirty.

There is one scene that got to me (and probably others) more than others in a bad way. But not because of anything the filmmakers, the actors or anyone else did. This was playing at Frightfest, which was just shortly after the Charlottesville "incident" (terrorist attack). So in the movie there is a particular line about Nazis ... and when that sentence was spoken out, I had to cringe ... loud! You wouldn't think this is something that would touch a nerve with people. It was meant as a joke, but also as truth ... but in regards to comments and statements made by a person who should be uniting people instead of dividing them ... Well let's leave it at that.

Maybe when you watch it, this won't play a role at all, maybe you'll think at that particular moment back on what happened and how crazy it is ... whatever the case, the movie is absolutely good and should not be judged in a bad light because this other individual who pretend plays to be in charge ...
