With its new GRAPHIC & BOLD colored take of Mexican Lucha Libre, it will leave you breathless, bloodthirsty. A true revival of the film, only this time your imagination can run wilder and bloodier. Daiju Kurabayashi & Hiro Fujii came together with LuchaGore Productions to create a new brand of Horror on paper.
