MEXICAN GOTHIC follows Noemí Taboada who heads to High Place, a distant mansion in the Mexican countryside, after a desperate letter from her cousin. Though Noemí seems like an unlikely rescuer, a glamorous debutante with chic gowns and perfect red lipstick, she is not afraid of the house, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom. But there are many secrets behind the mansion walls, and as Noemí digs deeper, she unearths stories of violence and madness. Mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, she may soon find it impossible to leave this enigmatic house behind.
