Concept 01

Two brothers walked through an unknown path in the middle of the woods, as they walked for a long time they found a cabin. They went to the cabin and found out it was the house of a powerful black magician. He offered the brothers shelter in exchange of their help. He instructed them to collect some logs to warm his house at night. However, the brothers failed to do the task assigned and instead ate .the magician’s food. When the magician found out what the brothers did he told them to leave his house. As the brothers when out he set a curse for their misbehavior. As time passed on their way home to the village they started to hear howls from a far away distance. Scared of the creature making those sounds, they fast-paced until they encountered a huge monster. A dog so abnormally big with a black like coal fur with hypnotizing red eyes was growling in front of them. Then, they thought ‘this must be el cadejo, the evil spirit the elders of the village talked about’…

Concept 02 

On a hot summer afternoon, a young couple of brothers wandered far away from home. As night arrived, they encountered the black cadejo. The brothers knew about the existence of this black spirit because villagers used to talk about a shaman. A man who lived in a secluded part of the village who practiced dark magic. The elders of the community believed that at night the shaman turned into the black cadejo.  A shapeshifter who attacked people who wandered at night. The brothers also believed in the white cadejo. A spirit so noble, made by the gods to protect those who wander at night. Soon enough they heard another animal getting close, as the moonlight touched the other animal’s fur.  The young brothers saw it. It was the white cadejo. The two animals approached the now scared brothers, in the back of their minds they knew what would happen, they hear stories like this from the elders in the village. Both spirits will fight for their souls. If only the white cadejo win, they would get safe and sound back to their family
