Genres Comedy Drama Horror Thriller
Tarantino-esque gruesome yet darkly comedic crime thriller drama set in a poverty and crime ridden L.A. neighborhood. Split in three intermingling segments titled “Monsters,” “Fiends,” and “Thugs”, the story follows several desperate seedy characters who all have ties to Teddy, a local mass murdering crime boss and white slaver who kidnaps and murders illegal immigrants for their organs or enslaves them for his prostitution/rape ring. El Monstruo is a failed luchador who never breaks character, suffers from violent blackouts and works as Teddy’s top henchman while trying to ignore the various horrifying aspects of the job. He’s expecting a baby with Kaylee, a woman given as child to Teddy by her mother Crystal, and hopes that his child will fill the shoes of El Monstruo’s legendary and heroic luchador father, something that El Monstruo failed to do and is ridden with guild over it.
