Synopsis: "After attempting to cross the US/Mexico border in search of a better life, Armando awakens in an unknown room, his body broken down and a Lucha Libre mask sewn into his neck. He attempts to escape, but is surrounded by a sadistic family, who watch him with hungry eyes. The only chance for Armando’s survival in this hellish nightmare is to last in a wrestling match against the most terrifying villain of all: GIGANTE!""
Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl: The new horror film Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl is now available to stream on Shudder.
"Directed by A.D. Calvo and starring Erin Wilhelmi (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Knick) and Quinn Shephard (Hostages, Tribeca Film Festival World Premiere Blame), the thriller film explores the mysterious friendship between quiet Adele and seductive Beth, which blossoms while Adele takes care of her agoraphobic aunt."
Synopsis: "When Adele (Erin Wilhelmi) is sent to look after her aunt Dora, she hopes to bond with the kind lady who cared for her as a child. But Dora won’t leave her room and barely speaks. So when Adele meets the seductive Beth, her lonely life improves for the first time. After Beth pushes her to shirk her duties however, Adele faces a dangerous reckoning. Who is Beth and what does she want from Adele? From performances to visual style, A.D. Calvo’s queer supernatural chiller evokes the eerie atmosphere of 70s and 80s horror in much the same way Ti West did with THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL."
