''And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:
Over the weekend I had the incredible, horrifying privilege of watching what has since become my favorite short horror film to date. The terrifying Brazilian production, Cabrito, was written and directed by Luciano de Azevedo and has already made one hell of a run on the film festival circuit in 2015. The 19 minute film was created on $750.00 budget, accounting for the team's gasoline, food, makeup, costumes, scenery and payment for the actors/actresses. While the low production costs might make you think Cabrito is just another cheap thrill, I promise you, you're dead wrong. Get a taste and check out the unholiest of all trailers below, you'll see just what the hell I'm talking about.
"At the ball that she made at home, she danced with Satan."
The film revolves around a cotton candy vendor living with his mother, a religious fanatic who imposes her twisted perception of 'faith' upon her doting boy. The family live in a small Brazilian town, so when local women becomes pregnant under scandalous circumstances it creates a sense of anxiety between the mother and son. Compelled by their faith an incontestable thirst for blood the two choose to react, doing so in the only way that they see fit...
