The Horror of Dolores Roach was a truly outstanding podcast series that had murder, mayhem, marijuana and empanadas to boot. It was a thoroughly enjoyable series set in our beloved Washington Heights. Well, guess what? The Horror of Dolores Roach is now an 8 part video series that drops on Amazon Prime on July 7. The very talented Justina Machado plays the lead role so we are hoping it is as good if not better than the podcast series.
After an unjust 16-year prison sentence, Dolores Roach (Justina Machado) returns to a gentrified Washington Heights, where she reunites with an old stoner friend, Luis, who lets her live and work as a masseuse in the basement under his empanada shop. When the promise of her newfound stability is quickly threatened, “Magic Hands” Dolores is driven to shocking extremes to survive.
