Flicks: Cinco De Mayo (2013)


El Chupacabra is alive and well in the Arizona desert.

Director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III and IV) erroneously finds himself included in a group of horror movie directors dubbed the "Splat Pack" film historian Alan Jones in Total Film magazine. The short list includes Rob Zombie, Robert Rodriguez, Eli Roth, Alexander Aja (Hills Have Eyes remake in 2006) and the writer and director of the original Saw, James Wan.

Yer ol pal The Sleaze-A-Saurus has dug quite deeply in attempting to unearth any current information on this movie due to the pathetic state of your hu-mon Internet which is proving most ... primitive - in this regard. The official site is shut down ahead of the projected released date - which is not exactly re-assuring. Slash Film suggests that Cinco De Mayo will possibly be released on May 5th 2013. IMDb, which is usually very useful when tracking films has two completely unrelated Cinco De Mayo films listed and one of them is also a horror movie that is slated to be released at the same date but with a completely different plot and crew.

It's very possible that this film is facing some obstacles, but, judging from the quality of the trailer, the gritty editing and well pace rock 'n roll scoring - it looks like it could be the film that really earns Bousman's name be mentioned in the same breath as the likes Rob Zombie and veteran indie horror film-maker Robert Rodriguez.

Holiday horror films have reached the end of their creative cycle (April Fool's Day, Silent Night Deadly Night, Black Christmas, Halloween). Cinco De Mayo director Bousman is also guilty of this tactic with Mother's Day starring Rebecca De Mornay released in 2010.
