Gigi Saul Guerrero Storms San Diego Comic-Con 2019

LATIN HORROR Ambassadress Gigi Saul Guerrero at San Diego Comic-Con.

LATIN HORROR Ambassadress and emerging horror powerhouse, Gigi Saul Guerrero, attended this year’s San Diego Comic Con—the 50th anniversary of the largest gathering of its kind—to participate on a special panel entitled ‘The New Wave of Latin American Horror Cinema,’ succinctly described as “a casual chat about the past and the future of Latin American horror cinema.” Afterward, Gigi interviewed several of her fellow panel members, including Victor Osuna (Las Reglas de la Ruina), Freddy Chávez Olmos, Mauricio Chernovetzky (Styria), Emilio Portes (Belzebuth), and Isaac Ezben (El Incidente). The panel was moderated by Sebastian Fink.

In the on-the-spot interviews, which are in Spanish with English subtitles, the filmmakers discuss the importance of a new cohort of Latin American story-tellers in horror and why our collective countries are reap with the historic and folkloric source material to create an abundance of films anchored in those cultural traditions and idiosyncrasies.

Gigi’s debut feature film, CULTURE SHOCK, recently premiered on HULU as part of the popular Into the Dark TV series produced by horror titan Blum House. The episode hit on July 4, 2019 and has sustained a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomato! Check it out!
