Comparison to similar films: Comparison to similar films I compare my film to the film ”The Sacrament of Blood” from the Hunt by John Walsh . The episode features fugitive Pablo Pinto Mata, a Santeria priest. My film is similar in that both Mata and Malcon (my character) are Santeria priests , and portrayed as a sexual predators who use ritual sexual violence. Difference is that Mata is a murderer running from the law, my character Pedro Malcon , is not a murderer and is caught by police. Mood Board/Influences: Mood Board/Influences
