In April 2010, the Quintanilla family travelled to their old farmhouse in Sitges, Spain, where teenagers Christian and July set about investigating the 'Legend of the Girl of Garraf Woods', a local legend of a ghost haunting the nearby area.
Using video cameras, the brother and sister recorded their findings as they went along. Five days later, the Quintanilla family was found murdered under strange circumstances. The local Police reported the existence of 37 hours of recorded evidence.
Atrocious finally reveals the shocking true footage of those tragic five days.
FERNANDO BARREDA LUNA (Writer / Director / Editor)
Fernando Barreda Luna is a Mexican born filmmaker who has always had a love of film. After a brief stint as a graphic designer which fed his wallet but not his soul, he returned to his true passion creating celluloid stories. He immediately began crafting a number of potent short films. Not satisfied to just direct these shorts, he also showed his range by scripting and editing a number of these projects.
In 2007 he decided to expand his creative vision and formed his production company, Films Nabu, through which he has written a number of screenplays and his directorial debut "Atrocious." His works show a wide range of influence including videogames, Asian cinema, Anime, comics, Manga, Horror, Sci Fi and Westerns. He is also skilled in composing music, designing, painting, photography and is an accomplished musician.
