If you’ve ever been curious about the horror films coming out of the largest mountain range in South America, there’s never been a better chance than this.

The Andean Horror Film Festival will feature two feature-length films, one medium-length experimental film, and one short documentary. All three have been produced in the Peruvian Andes and never before seen on Canadian screens.

Many of the films feature monsters unique to Peruvian myth, including the half man/half llama demon the Jarjacha, the evil Kharisiri shaman, and the murderous Pishtaco. If you’ve seen everything that the Northern Hemisphere has to offer, this is sure to give you a few new nightmares.
