"Muerte Con Carne" - The Appetizing Novel Horror Short, 'El Gigante' Is Based Upon

You may have heard that LuchaGore Productions and Gigi Saul Guerrero have a full length feature film coming soon called, "El Gigante" which expands on the award winning short by the same name. What you may NOT know is that both are based on Shane McKenzie's novel, "Muerte Con Carne" (translated as "Death With Meat"). Highly regarded for it's no-holds-barred approach to the very dark subject matter, fans of films like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" may do themselves a favor by heading over to Amazon.com and ordering a copy for yourself. It'll be interesting to see if Gigi can match the visceral carnage painted by McKenzie's text.

*fingers crossed*
