Written and directed by Jodorowsky along with Claudio Argento and Roberto Leoni, Santa Sangre is a terrifying, psychedelic horror. Set in Mexico it tells the story of a boy who grows up in a circus. We follow in flashback and flash forward the young Fenix (played by Jodorowsky’s son Adan) who witnesses a horrifically brutal incident between his mother and father which sends him insane and as an adolescent (played by Jodorowsky’s older son Axel), as he is leaves an asylum into the care of his crazed, vengeful mother.
