HFS: That's Mexploitation! (feat. La Vengaza de los Punks)

Mommy, what’s a HFS night? Well, HFS nights are Cinefamily’s monthly signature screening series of the wildest and weirdest cinematic wonders of the world that can blow your mind and put a smile on your face, may or may not be hazardous to your health, renew or destroy your faith in humanity, but just might change your life. We promise. Each night opens with a homemade long-form video montage of found-footage madness and brain-boiling nuggets focused on the subject at hand.

To modify what our Mexican mamasitas told us about a good man, a real HFS movie should be ¡feo, fuerte…y febril! Ugly… strong….and….feverish! For pure brute in-your-face shameless emotional catharsis, nothing will satisfy your needs for mustachioed melodrama and spitfire sensuality like a good Mexploitation movie. So for Cinco De Mayo, your HFS tour guides are gonna take you on a tour of a world full of machine guns and machismo, brujas and barbarians, nitwit nacos and spicy señoritas. After serving up clips the wildest, weirdest movies from the bottom of the barrio, we bring you la flor y nata: LA VENGANZA DE LOS PUNKS! This post-Road Warrior mis-rendering of “punk” subculture is a violent, crazed clownshow of multi-colored Afro attitude and Viking casual wear — complete with quasi-Satanic ceremonies led by real-life Mexican wrestler El Fantasma (donning a rainbow sherbert KKK hood, and accompanied by naked Frazetta femme dancers.) After these punk escoria rape and machine-gun the wrong quinceañera, a Hispanic Charles Bronson lookalike goes on a vengeance streak that outdoes Death Wish 3 for the innovativeness of his kills. Don’t miss this mondo Mexploitation menudo of madness — IT’S MANDATORY!
La Venganza de los Punks Dir. Damián Acosta Esparza, 1987, digital presentation, 90 min.
