Soul Robbers (Ladronas de Almas)
"The new classic of Mexican horror films" -Cinefagia Sixty years after the release of the first Mexican zombie film, "Ladron de cadaveres (The Body Snatcher)" (Fernando Mendez | Mexico | 1957), and after the great horde of tapes, series and other products of cult and fashion of the undead, a Mexico national production that not only takes the issue of the eats-brains as the axis of the plot, but contextualizes them combining it with a historical moment: The War of Independence. A group of suspected insurgents in search of a lost loot arrives at an hacienda inhabited only by the owner, his daughters and a servant of Haitian origin. Their eagerness not to leave the war with empty hands will make them defy the seemingly defenseless women, who have a macabre advantage. Winner, Best Mexican Film, FERATUM Film Fest.
