El pico (1983)

Paco (son of a conservative law enforcement officer) and his best friend Urko (son of a progressive socialist politician) are heroin addicts. EL PICO is the intricately woven story of Paco and Urko trekking ever deeper into the seedy world of the illicit drug trade in early-’80s Spain. It chronicles a period of upheaval in the lives of these unlikely friends, as their addiction leads them to escalate criminal activity, kicking off a chain reaction of bloodshed and tragedy. EL PICO shines an unforgiving light into the dark corners of the drug underworld and explores the complexities of family lives that straddle the line between both sides of the law.




El Pico 2 (1984)

shudder in June 2022

El Pico 2 continues the criminal saga of Paco, a troubled heroin addict who escaped sordid entanglements of murder and overdose, thanks to the actions of his law enforcement officer father. Under the watchful eyes of his father and grandmother, Paco struggles to free himself from the tightening grip of addiction. But salvation proves as elusive as ever, and he soon finds himself drawn back into his old life. EL PICO 2 is a glimpse into the hellish depths of heroin addiction and the tragedy it visits upon its victims and their families from the dark corners of the illicit drug trade to prison and back again.

Navajeros (1980)

Navajeros chronicles the life of Jaro, the leader of a juvenile delinquent gang in late-’70s Spain, depicting his rise from street urchin to outlaw anti-hero on the way to his inevitable end. The child of absentee parents, Jaro has amassed an impressive rap sheet before reaching his 16th birthday but still finds life unfulfilling. Ambition drives him to take up a sawed-off shotgun and lead his gang on a crime spree that will paint a bloody swathe across the city and move Jaro closer and closer to violent tragedy. Unflinching and often brutal, the film treats its subject with genuine humanity.




No One Heard the Scream (1973)

One year after his international breakthrough with Cannibal Man, defiant Basque filmmaker Eloy de la Iglesia co-wrote and directed this twisted thriller that instantly made him “the father of Spanish Giallo” (Spanish Fear): When a woman spies her neighbor disposing of his wife’s corpse, she will cross the line from witness to accomplice to something far more depraved.
