    SOHOME HORROR FEST: SHOCKDOWN SATURDAYS - Week Three (Bonus Film)

    A short but (bitter)sweet Argentinian western. It's clear from the get-go why this was chosen to be Soho Horror Fest's Valentine's feature, even if it came a week late; it's dark, and brutal, and tragic, but more than anything, it's a love story.
