Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Curandero’ Gets A Red Band Trailer [Video]

A red band trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s Curandero: Dawn of the Demon has debuted online.

The Machete director wrote the original script for the Mexican horror flick. Although the film was produced by Rodriguez and the folks at Dimension Films, the movie never saw the light of day in the United States.

Curandero is considered by many to be the “lost” Robert Rodriguez movie. It was helmed by Stash House and Fright Night 2 director Eduardo Rodriguez. Fans can finally own the film they’ve been reading about for years.

Although Lionsgate released the film onto DVD and VOD earlier this month, the distributor has just gotten around to releasing a red band trailer for the flick. You can find recently-released clip embedded below.

The company describes the movie as follows:

“‘Curandero: Dawn of the Demon’ is an action-packed horror flick that takes a couple on a horrifying journey through the deepest bowels of the Mexican underworld. When beautiful federal agent Magdalena calls upon the local curandero (Gallardo) for his services to purify a police station, the two of suddenly find themselves immersed in a satanic cult’s bloodthirsty battleground.”

Robert Rodriguez will have two new movies out in theaters later this year. In addition to Machete Kills, the director is delivering the long-awaited sequel to Sin City. The follow-up is being co-directed by Frank Miller. The sequel should arrive later this year.

Rodriguez revealed earlier this year that A Good Day to Die Hard star Bruce Willis would reprise his role as Hartigan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. He also said that the production has been moving piece by piece.

“The only story we’ve shot is the intro story, that’s completely done. The other ones we’ve just sort of been piecemealing, shooting as the actors become available. All three stories have a little bit of footage to be shot,” Robert Rodriguez told Total Film in January.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is slated to arrive in theaters on October 4. Machete Kills is expected to drop on September 15.

The trailer for the filmmaker’s “lost” horror movie lies below. Since the clip contains violent images, viewer discretion is advised.
