Deliberately Bloodthirsty.

 A sleazy gang are out & about riding in their Kawasaki Ninja & Honda Hurricane motorcycles looking for people to mess with. They begin with a couple who’s car breaks down and thus proceed to rape the woman and murder her boyfriend. In just several miles down, a group of friends are to spend a weekend at a cabin in the woods and a blonde chick named Ana (Consuelo Duval) is hoping to get closer to her friend Braulio (Juan Valentin), but Braulio has made it clear he’s in love with Tanya (Socorro Albarran) since they’ve been kissing non-stop & Braulio has even gone as far as to sing love songs to her. Ana is heartbroken by this, but by chance another male friend there named Raul (Jorge Ortin) confesses his love to Ana and just when you think a romance is to blossom—all hell breaks loose when that sleazy gang arrive at the cabin and torments the shit out of everyone inside!

Los Sanguinarios is yet another movie about a biker gang messing with a group of innocent people and a male adversary from the innocent group is out for revenge on the biker gang. What’s funny about this movie though is that while it feels really cheap and fairly short (71 minutes to be exact), it still brings in a fair amount of entertainment & sleaze. Muscle-man actor Agustin Bernal plays the sleazy leader of the sleazy biker gang and his face makeup is supposed to make him look scary— but really he just looks silly all around. He’s also the only character who rapes women in the entire movie all while the rest of the leather & studded-attired gang watches in excitement, except the obvious gay member who for whatever reason is just there looking underwhelmed. Flamboyant as well. Juan Valentin is of course the main man in the movie and he’s the one who of course is out to kill the gang and just right before all the horrors happen, Juan sings 2 love songs “Deliberadamente” & “Perdóname Cariño” while sporting a Puma sports t-shirt. Incredible, right? 

As entertaining as Los Sanguinarios is, it’s also incredibly fucking weird and that mostly consists of the unrequited romance sub-plot. It feels so forced in & so unnecessary as well since why do we have to care if so & so isn’t love with what’s her face?  But other than that, Los Sanguinarios is quite the entertaining & sleazy movie. Maybe put this movie on while cleaning or waiting for an ubereats order. Whatever the occasion, you'll be amused for sure.
