The latest horror anthology movie from Mike Lyddon and Reel Progress LLC picked up an honorable mention for best feature length film at INFIERNO EN LOS ANDES film festival in Puno, Peru.
Lyddon was on hand for the festivities which included dozens of international short films and several features from around the world.
“It’s the kind of festival where you can talk with the fest directors and everything has a very personal feel to it. Puno is a great town and an excellent place for a genre event like this. We has some tough competition from films with budgets far, far greater than ours, so I am pleased that CUENTOS DE LA BRUJA walked away with an honorable mention,” said Lyddon.
It’s that special time of the year when ghost and goblins abound..and a tasty treat of HAM is waiting to be FOUND! Bwahahaha
