Overview

Director Zev Berman teams with screenwriter Eric Poppen to explore the occult-based Mexican border-town murder spree that claimed the lives of 60 innocents between January and March of 1989 alone. Graduation is drawing near and the spring breeze is blowing, what better time for three thrill-seeking Texas University students to make a run for the border to celebrate with one last wild weekend of drinking and debauchery? Though all the elements were in place for the perfect weekend getaway, this hard-partying trio is about to find out just how quickly things can take a turn for the worse when you're a stranger in a strange land. Upon running afoul of an ancient blood cult in search of the perfect human sacrifice, the three unsuspecting students are abducted and prepared for the ritualistic execution that will give Mexican drug runners supernatural protection that reaches above and beyond the laws of man. Sean Astin, Rider Strong, and Jake Muxworthy star in an ominous tale of occult bloodletting inspired by actual events.

    One of the best...

    This was one of the best from this years Afterdark Horrorfest. Although this isn't a horror movie it is pretty graphic to say the least. I had read an article about what happened to the students that this story is based on which made the story more real for me anyway. One of the few movies that is actually based on a true story fairly accurately.
