Good news if you are a fan of hardcore horror from Latin America. And who is not these days? Our friends at Morbido Films are putting together what sounds to be a nasty piece of work; an anthology of horror shorts in the upcoming project Alerta! Recuento de cadáveres a.k.a Beware! Body Count

As you read the announcement below there is a bit of cultural reference there which will help you understand where the directors are getting their inspiration from. Red Notes are accident and crime report alerts that newspapers receive almost daily. 

And along with the teaser poster we also have four stills from the various productions. The final one features lady parts (nudity). Other than that there is just your usual occult imagery and such. Standard stuff. 

Morbido Films present "Alerta! Recuento de cadáveres"a.k.a "Beware! Body Count"

An Argentinian-Brazilian-Chilean-Cuban-Spanish and Mexican co-production.

Eight Latin stories about horror and violence taken from the "red note". (events page) told by the wildest (controversial) Spanish speaking directors. An anthology of Latin horror stories that do not come out of comics or literature, but the pages of events (red note). The most infamous Latin horror genre directors bring to the screen the roughest and scariest real life crimes.

"Beware! Body Count" immerses the audience in a POV nightmare trough 8 horror stories based on real crimes. Passion crimes and black magic rites from Cuba, sadist torturers operating in the Mexican border, violent home invasions and abuse in Spain, psychopaths and police brutality from Chile, family violence and profaned corpses in Argentina and a gang of Brazilian cannibals are the main ingredients of this film, the first horror anthology that brings together some of the most controversial Latin horror filmmakers.

Directed by: Patricio Valladares (Hidden in the Woods), Ramiro García Bogliano (Penumbra), Rodrigo Aragâo (Mar Negro), Jorge Mella (La Gravedad del Púgil), Lex Ortega (Atroz), Demián Rugna (The Last Gateway), Paco Limón (Doctor Infierno) and Jorge Molina (Molina's Feroz) and Executive Producer Pablo Guisa Koestinger (Mórbido Film Festival). And the artwork teaser poster is by Mexican artist GURO.

I have met one of these filmmakers, Lex Ortega, two years ago at the Morbido Film Festival and wrote about his collection of short films that he gave me before I left. I know he will appreciate this when I say this, Lex is a sick muther. His involvement alone tells me that Alerta! is going to be an very intense experience.
