★★★★ Stars: Adrian Aguirre, Fran­cisco Bar­reiro Di­rec­tor: Jorge Michel Grau Avail­able: Now on DVD

GOOD hor­ror films of­ten have some­thing in­ter­est­ing to say about the hu­man con­di­tion or of­fer a so­cial com­men­tary. This Mex­i­can genre flick about an im­pov­er­ished fam­ily of can­ni­bals who lose their pa­tri­arch and provider and have to rely on the chil­dren to bring home the ba­con ( so to speak) cer­tainly does that. First-time di­rec­tor Grau is not fo­cused solely on gore, but on the moral­ity of the sit­u­a­tion and mak­ing his mon­sters hu­man. He ef­fec­tively builds the ten­sion and when the nasty bits do even­tu­ally come, they pack quite a punch.
