Verano Rojo does not intend to innovate, on the contrary, it rejoices in the cliché of slasher movies. We have to bear in mind this is a film created by and for the lovers of this genre, and so it’s meant to be a homage to it. It follows a classic structure, but with a mallorquin personality this time. Whoever watched classics such as “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “Halloween”, “House of Wax”, and “Friday the 13th” will know what we’re talking about. In each and every one of them we find the essential elements of the slasher films: young people with no parental supervision end up in a remote place where a serial killer who wears a mask and holds a knife will hunt them to death. This premise is the starting point in Verano Rojo.
