Synopsis

When Angela arrives to her latest babysitting gig she is buzzed into the home but no one is there to greet her. After a brief call with the Mother, she heads upstairs to check on Matteo, the little boy she was hired to look after. She finds Matteo scared and alone and despite her best efforts to calm him down and get him to bed, Matteo won’t go to sleep. He can’t. El Cuco is hungry and he needs to be fed.

El Cuco is Hungry is a modern interpretation of the Latin American folktale about a dark, shapeless monster that appears out of nowhere to kidnap and eat children who disobey their parents and don’t fall asleep.
