Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th - October 15th) with us as we pay tribute to Hispanic creatives in horror. Today, let’s salute Uruguayan filmmaker Fede Álvarez for making horror a little more colorful. Fede made his directorial debut reimagining a cult-classic by co-writing and directing 2013’s Evil Dead. Serious themes like addiction and loss were front-and-center, adding new life to the campy franchise.
2014 saw Fede helm an episode of Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn TV series. We then witnessed the director tackle a more grounded tone for his critically-praised original, Don’t Breathe (2016). Fans of the tension-inducing film will be happy to know the script for a follow-up is now complete. Next up, Álvarez is behind another mammoth title as he’s set to direct the newest Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie.
