RATAS DEL BORDO (BORDER RATS): Check Out The Poster For Aaron Soto's Cult Feature
A familiar name around these parts, Mexican director Aaron Soto rose to public attention through his work with Rue Morgue Magazine, has contributed to these pages a few times over the years, and turned in one segment of the very strong Mexican horror anthology Mexico Barbaro alongside the likes of Jorge Michel Grau and Issac Ezban. And he's now hard at work on his debut feature, Ratas Del Bordo (Border Rats).
RATAS DEL BORDO is a horror fable set in 1989, were Punks, Norteños and Cholos fight a strange Witch in the Tijuana border, including a cool soundtrack of Mexican Punk music and a closer look at the culture clash of Mexico’s strangest city.
Pablo Asento produces with Omar Yñigo in the lead. And for those struck by the handsome poster art to the left, Soto will be attending the Rue Morgue Dark Carnival this weekend in Hamilton, Ontario (which means he's less than an hour away from me right now and didn't tell me he was coming, which makes him a bad man) and will have physical copies at his booth.
