THE BLACK FABLES: REVIEW
Written by VHS
“The Black Fables” is an amazing anthology that brings together 4 of the biggest names in the Brazilin horror scene. Rodrigo Aragão, Petter Baiestorf, Joel Caetano, and José Mojica Marins. This bloodbath of Brazilin folklore is shocking and will surely leave you wanting more. Each instalment pushes the envelope and really showcases the talents the filmmakers involved. My favorite part of the flick besides the obvious entertainment value was learning little pieces of Brazilin history and the scary stories they tell around the campfire.
The first story, “Monster of the Sewer” by Rodrigo Aragão is the tale of a corrupt government official who refuses to give money for a better sewer system in the city he represents. It will make you think twice about sitting on the pot again. The second story, “Fierce Pampas” by Petter Baiestorf is a period piece about a racist landowner and his shitty racist men who find themselves being hunted by a werewolf. The werewolf design is amazing and there is nothing I love more than watching dirtbags get what’s coming to them. The third, “The Saci” by José Mojica Marins is the story of a creepy woodland creature. Joel Caetano made the 4th tale called “Bloody Blonde” which is a story not so different from Bloody Mary which is cool and finally we have “Iara’s House” by Rodrigo Aragon which is the story of a cheating husband and the goat man who told on him.
