Opening today: 36 Saints

What happens when you have a serial killer in NYC, operating under the misconception that if he kills 36 righteous people the world would become 36saints-ps-5chaos. This is the premise behind the new thriller, “36 Saints”.

Starring Franky G and Jeffrey De Serrano, as the detectives searching for the killer, “36 Saints” has been described as a cross between “Seven” and The Da Vinci Code”. As cops run around the city, the clues left at crime scenes allow them to theorize that the murders are somehow linked to the fact that the deceased are named after saints. It’s now up to the cops to find the remaining ‘saints’ before darkness can descend upon the world.

As described by Fandango, “the detectives unearth evidence that every generation 36 people are chosen to keep the powers of darkness at bay. Convinced that the killer is attempting to exterminate these chosen few to herald a new age of darkness, the detectives realize that should they fail to solve the case, all of humanity may suffer.

Written by Joey Dedio, who also wrote “Tio Papi”, recently said that these are movies that star Latinos, but are not Latino stories, they are stories that happen to have Latinos in them.

About Eileen Rivera

Eileen was born in The Bronx, to Puerto Rican parents. She grew up thinking the whole world was Latino. Moving to Rockland County in upstate New York taught her it wasn’t. One more move in 1976, brought her to Hudson County, New Jersey where she currently resides. She attended Rutgers-Newark where she majored in Social Work with a minor in Puerto Rican studies. Eileen credits her history professor, Dr. Olga Wagenheim, for the spark and impetus to search out her roots in a pre-computer era. The daughter of a minister, she credits her father for the activism, volunteerism and search for justice that have characterized her adult years.

The mother of two adult daughters, Eileen has worked in the Juvenile Justice system for twenty-eight years. She acts as a liaison between the Juvenile Detention Center and the Juvenile Court.

Writing was something she shared with family. Stories and songs for her children and Christmas tales for the extended family. She now shares her writing with a larger family, the Being Latino family.
