Praying, Sinning, Robbing, Raping, Shooting, & Stabbing.

A lot of things happen in a big city. Some good, some bad. Mostly bad though. Take the city in 38 Especial (aka ".38 Special"), a gang of thugs rob people in a phony taxi bus, drug traffickers are battling cops on a daily basis, and then there's a psychopathic man going around raping & killing girls because they're 'sinners'.

Meet Raul. He's perverted, religious, and he lives with his mama who whips him and herself. Why? Because they 'sin' so fucking much and they need to be fucking punished for it!! When Raul acquires ID's of attractive women, he goes to their homes and stabs them to death. He also rapes them because it is the only way to 'cleanse their sinning souls'. A couple of badass cops search for crazy Raul and along the way they go around gun battling with drug traffickers.

38 Especial is ridiculously amazing! Its action and horror in one! The fact that we see epic gun battles and bloody stabbings in one fucking Mexican trash movie amazes me. Characters in the movie are cool, the cops are badasses and the killer Raul is a sleazy & crazy ass mofo. I also like the fact that he looks exactly like nerdy Curtis from Bloody Birthday.

I really love this movie. It's trashy, bloody, and oodles of fun. It's a must watch for sure. Look for it! 7/10.
