Horror in the Andes is an intimate portrait of a friendship that is held together by a shared passion for filmmaking. Set in the small town of Ayacucho the documentary follows three friends during the arduous process of making a horror movie. It explores how Andean filmmakers have resorted to horror fiction as a means to revive a pre-colonial past and their desire to make cinema for Ayacuchans.
