[SAHFF 2019 SHORT FILM REVIEW] FEARLESS DEMON KILLERS: Curse of the Lallorona

I was attending the San Antonio Horrific Film Festival. I had the chance to see a short film called — Fearless Demon Killers: The curse of the Llorona. Two Cartel Hitmen try to regain their souls by helping rid San Antonio neighborhoods of monster ghost and Demons. Like all the movies for the festival, filmed in my hometown of San Antonio and stars Abraham Takatsuki, Andy Martin, Connie Ochoa, Ruby Red Munoz, Tanya Santamaria, Nancy Oakley, Maristella Longoria, Julianna Longoria, Alex Santamaria, Justin Santamaria, Arthur Kurland, Maryann Kurland, and Mark Gonzales.

The movie isn’t bad, its not perfect. But it does have a massive amount of heart. Honestly, I can’t argue with that because it’s a labor of love. Christopher Longoria wrote and directed the movie. He’s a lover of films, and it shows in his work. There’s even a nod to Evil Dead. Christopher went out to make a movie in his backyard, also working with the Texas Film Commission to make sure everything was OK as he worked on specific locations. So Christopher Longoria went out to pursue his love, and during the q&a, he’s humble and honest. I can’t help but have massive respect for him. Some people will see the movie and enjoy it for what it is. There are jokes, and there’s horror, which is something we can all love. The film itself gives us a glimpse of certain areas in my home town, and the actors did a great job where awards were presented. Best Actor– Abraham Takatsuki and Best actresses-Ruby Red Munoz. I’m very grateful to see his work and glad to hear he’ll be doing more. The films aren’t big budget, but we have a good time watching, and that’s what Christopher Longoria went out to accomplish.
