In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Short of the Week #14: M is for Matador

In keeping with the anthology theme, I wanted to focus on filmmakers who broke out while competing in the ABC's of Death series. Today's short is Gigi Saul Guerrero's ABC's of Death 2.5 segment M is for Matador.

Guerrero had already made a few shorts (and a mini-series) by the time the ABC 2 contest rolled around, but this was the ones that turned the heads of many. The one-two punch of this and 2014's El Gigante proved she wasn't playing around.

She has gone on to make several more fantastic shorts and most recently directed seven episodes of a TV series (with co-creator Shane McKenzie) called La Quinceañera. I wager a feature cannot be far off.
