    This weekend from September 2-4, the Costa Rican Film Center plans on showing a series of grindhouse and terror films at the Museum of Art and Contemporary Design.

    International terror and fantasy films from throughout Latin America will be accompanied by literature, comics, character cosplay (costumes reproduced by fans) and musical groups of the same genre.

    John Landis, living legend and producer of many internationally acknowledged classics (The Blues Brothers, Animal House, American Werewolf in London) will have his new film Some Guy Who Kills People, one of the official selections of the festival, headlining at 6pm on Sunday night.

    According to the festival’s website, “Mórbido has proven to be a difficult project, concerned with the spreading a national and international cultural cinematography, a launching pad and promotion, an expression of fantasy and terror film in Mexico and also as an important product of cultural tourism.”

    Also screening in Mexico later this year, this film festival is not for everybody. The minimum age for some of the films are twelve and above, while only three have the honor of being 18+. However, many of the films are open to the public, which all can enjoy.

    According to an article published in la Nación, Dennis Gómez, who is leading the activities, noted that many short films are produced in Costa Rica, and the goal of this festival is to recognize them publicly since they are “not [taken] seriously” by the Muestra de Cine despite their a great public following.

    Eight of these short films are competing in the competition, and will be shown between the longer titles. Admission for one day will be 2,500 colons and 8,000 colons for all three days (Saturday and Sunday goes 9:30am – 10:00 pm).
