Legendary (yet Seldom Seen) Extravaganza from Spain!
Spanish title LA MATANZA CANIBAL DE LOS GARRULOS LISERGICOS
[Cannibal Slaughter of the LSD Freaks]
Also known as CANNIBAL MASSACRE
starring: Manuel Manquina · Juanillo Esteban · Julian Hernandez
· Silvia Pintos (aka Silvia Superstar)
A group of young people
are heading back home after spending the evening at a punk concert in
another city. On the way, in a frightening rural area, the tires of their
car are punctured by broken glass on the road. They are forced to look
for help at the closest house which - unfortunately for them - happens
to be the home of the Machado clan. This is the most psychopathic family
in all of La Coruña. They have endured famine and personal tragedy
(caused by their parent's murder from a drug overdose), but today they
are stronger than ever. Under strict guidance from big brother Martín
Machado, they make money with a lucrative meat company (butchered humans,
of course) and have a breeding barn full of captured females. The new
arrivals with car troubles innocently accept the Machado hospitality,
completely unaware of the bloody and perverse fate which awaits them.
For years, under the
dictatorship of Francisco Franco, the arts suffered massive and severe
censorship in Spain. After his death (and the end of an iron-fisted rule)
in November 1975, numerous authors, musicians, film directors [etc.]
began experimenting with art-forms, styles and themes similar to projects
from more liberal nations. For example, filmmaker Manuel Esteba immediately
celebrated General Franco's death with the horror movies VICIOUS
AND NUDE and SEXO
SANGRIENTO [a film that opens with the report of Franco's death
coming from the car radio]. Commercial music also became more extreme,
emphasizing the darker side of drugs, sex and rock-n-roll, with musicians
like Miguel López Cubas. Julián Hernández (from Siniestro
Total) and Xurxo Souto from Os Diplomaticos de Monte-Alto. Interestingly,
in the early '90s, filmmaker Antonio Blanco put these musicians together
with some of his friends [including Silvia Superstar, lead singer for
The Killer Barbies] for a movie shoot at a rural farm in Galicia
owned by his family. The result is this legendary [yet seldom seen] movie.
A sequel was planned, but sadly abandoned... with the death of director
Blanco from an overdose at age 30, later that year.
