It really started like a normal night for bus driver Miguel (Carlos Carrasco) and his conductor Junito (Julian Urriola), until Miguel gets spooked by a pretty girl who turns into a decaying corpse before his very eyes while he's having a leak - and suddenly he drives the bus way above the speed limit, just to get away, which in turn is noticed by two bumbling cops (Renan Fernandez, Blas Valois), who stop the bus but crash one of their motorbikes doing so, so they also commandeer the bus to bring them back to headquarters. But there's the problem, they soon realize they have no idea where they are, they notice they're low on gas ... oh, and they're apparently followed by a bunch of witches. They somehow make it to a church where the priest (Leo Wiznitzer) tells them they're in the middle of the Chiriqui jungle, hundreds of miles from home, but where Miguel comes from, and when he apparently has accidently kicked off an urban legend when leaving his fiancée (Alejandra Araúz), who then tried to kill her daughter and got run over by a bus. And it seems now that whole story comes to catch up with Miguel. Sure, he and friends are safe as long as they're in the church, but somehow they manage to burn down the church, crash the bus they're getting away from, have to ward off cannibals, and ultimately fight it out with the local witches coven that resulted from above urban legends - and they're not equipped for that fight ...

 

Diablo Rojo PTY, supposedly the first horror film out of Panama, is above all else one thing: Wild - basically it's a hodge-podge of horror mainstays held together by its bumbling protagonists (along with a good portion of dark humour), all done with a distinctly Latin American flavour that puts emphasis on folklore, the macabre, but also strong primary colours and a certain joie-de-vivre despite everything horrible going on on screen. And the film really doesn't hold back in terms of gruesomeness, be it horrible creatures or pretty explicit scenes of dismemberment. The result then is a really fun ride that should sit extremely well with every horror fan with at least a bit of a predilection for the exotic and macabre.
