Marcello Avallone, Italy, 1989, Vinegar Syndrome, Horror

A young New Yorker named Lisa arrives in a small Mexican seaside town to identify the body of her father, a researcher into Mayan culture who has been brutally murdered in a sacrificial-style killing. Determined to uncover the truth behind her father’s death, Lisa decides to stay in town and learn more about local folklore and superstitions with the help of her father's friend, Peter. But as more and more bodies begin to pile up, could the legend of a vengeful and bloodthirsty Mayan king returning from the dead prove to be true? A dizzying blend of sex, mythology, and bloody supernatural slayings, Marcello Avallone's MAYA is an underseen classic from the waning days of Italian horror.

New 2K restoration from Vinegar Syndrome.
