Spain and Italy had a host of great directors in the 1960's and 1970's: Fulci, Bava, Leone, Corbucci, Ossorio, Petroni, Romero-Merchant, Pasolini, and on and on. 

The problem is, most of these people have either died or retired, with few younger men really rising up to take their place. For those who always see gloom and doom rather than a light at the end of the tunnel, there is hope. There are some new faces out there who are waiting in the ranks and slowly rising to attention. There are some hopeful after all.

One promising director is Carlos Alberto Alonso. Born in A Coruña, Spain, the same city as was born his idol, the late Amando de Ossorio, this man has embarked on a film career of his own, using some of the same chilling camera angles and plot twists as Ossorio was noted for.

In 2002, Alonso released a short film titled As Muxicas. Information may be found at http://www.asmuxicas.com, both on the short and on the director.

As Muxicas are fiery flashes of light in Spain's mythology, which when seen, are supposed to be an omen of death. The plot, like something out of an old Twilight Zone tv episode, revolves around an old man and a women, peasants caught up in superstition, and a  freshly dug grave. The less said about it the better, in order not to give the ending away. Order the DVD yourself or if you live in Europe, keep an eye out for showings. Though the film is no longer  new, the director has been taking it to numerous film festivals and making appearances himself. The momentum has picked up and people are waiting for more from this man.

Oddly enough, Alonso never met Ossorio, but grew up admiring his projects, especially the Templar/Blind Dead series (one of these days I will crank out an article on Ossorio, whom I did know, but that is another piece for another time). Like the noted Italian horror film director, Pupi Avati, continually credited Mario Bava as his idol, Alonso continues to pay compliment to Ossorio's works, considering him one of the most underrated directors in European history.

Visit his homepage, keep an eye out for him and watch, for this man may one day rise in his own right to be a great Spanish horror film director. He has a long way to go, but he is young enough and ambitious enough where he just might make it.
