Canadian provocateurs Luchagore Productions have been poised to break out as major players in indie horror for years, making huge strides and garnering tons of awards for their brutal and challenging shorts short films. Now, we’re getting the very first details on a “secret” film project they’ve been invested in for over a year, one previously referred to as #PROJECT LUCHA. But first, here’s the scoop on Luchagore, in case you’re not in the know:
Official Bio: Luchagore Productions is an award winning Horror production company based in Vancouver, Canada. Founded in 2013 by Gigi Saul Guerrero, Luke Bramley, Raynor Shima, and Gordon Cheng for their love of making films in the horror genre.
Some of their recent successes include the short film ‘Dia De Los Muertos’ part of “Mexico Barbaro”, a Mexican horror anthology. M is for Matador, which is officially a part of the ABC’s of Death 2.5. And now Luchagore is working with horror novelist Shane McKenzie on a new Horror feature “El Gigante”, which is their company’s most successful short yet, winning the attention of festivals worldwide! Luchagore has made well over 16 shorts which include viral sensations “Evil Dead in 60 seconds” and “A Luchagore Christmas” featured on Eli Roth’s CryptTV. The future has a lot of big projects lined up for Luchagore Productions.
And without further ado, here are the details on La Quinceañera:
Official Press Release: Last year in summer of 2016 Luchagore Production got approached to create a violent, gritty coming of age story. We have kept this secret for so long… but now we can finally reveal that #ProjectLucha is:
LA QUINCEAÑERA features fifteen-year-old Alejandra Santos, whose life is about to change forever on the night of her quinceañera. In this daring revenge tale, a young girl will learn the limits of resilience and strength as she is thrust into the most extraordinary of situations over the course of 24 hours. With her Abuela by her side, Alejandra transforms into a gutsy heroine everyone will be rooting for as she avenges her family against the cartel.
The Lucha crew shared a bunch of behind the scenes pics from La Quinceañera, including the Feature Image above and the photo below of Luke Bramley at the camera; you can see the rest, HERE. Obviously, there’s still plenty we don’t know about the project yet, so check back often for updates on La Quinceañera as details emerge. Stay tuned!
