Cocaine: Fatal Addiction.

Cocaina: Vicio Mortal (aka "Cocaine: Fatal Addicition") tells the tragic story of a woman named "Neli" (played by Rebeca Silva). Neli has lived a fucked up life since she was a child. As she grew older, her life was quite dull and meaningless. Then one day, she meets a young gigolo (Fernando Saenz) that takes an interest in her. After living with the gigolo dude for quite some time, she decides to become a bar girl/prostitute to make a living. The guy decides to retire from giogoling to become a cocaine pusher for a local mob boss (Xorge Noble aka Jorge Noble). Needing a helping hand, the guy then gets Neli to work with him acquiring cocaine and collecting money. From then on, they become wealthy but their lives become very risky since they get hooked on cocaine and deal with deadly criminals.

Shot in East Los Angeles: Cocaina: Vicio Mortal is an ultimate Trashy Mexican SOV film. It is just so damn sleazy & fucked up! The characters (minus Neli) are sleaze bags & are so damn unlikable. I felt so bad for Neli since she always has to interact with these kinds of people and she is just about the only good person in the movie! There's some violence in the movie, but of course it is poorly done. The gun shots sound cheap and the little blood shown looks like kool-aid. There's sex, but the sex is no good since it's incest, rape & just plain nasty looking. As for the music in the movie: there's crummy live mariachi music performed in night clubs, Los Terricolas playing 2 cheesy ballads, and throughout the whole movie we hear a depressing song play over & over. The depressing song is composed by an electric keyboard & synths. Now that makes the movie even more trashy than it already is. Wow!

An emotional SOV movie about cocaine, crime, and sexual abuse is definitely a trashy experience. I have never seen anything like this and I am so glad that I found this because it is a unique Mexican Trash movie. If you come across this anywhere, please get it! You will not regret it! 10/10.
