Cinco (2015)

IMDb - Bonus Features - Image Gallery - Script

Cinco follows five friends who become trapped in an abandoned nightclub and are attacked by sugar skull ghosts.

We have received some comments letting us know that we confused Cinco de Mayo with Día de Muertos, the day of the dead and to some, this is considered offensive. It was never our intention to offend anyone, we were just looking to blend to two holidays together for a fun, short film.

This short film was the fifth and final short film released as part of 12 Months of Terror, which was never completed.
