Since the late 1950s, Mexico has produced its own rich and distinctive strain of horror cinema, combining supernatural tales of witches and vampires with regional folklore, head-spinning surrealism, and heaps of creepy Gothic atmosphere. Brimming with cinematic invention, these high water marks of the genre are among the wildest, freakiest, and most unique horror movies ever made.
