Review (Spoils): Back in 1991 in Madrid a tale is told about a young girl named Veronica (Sandra Escacena) who looks after her younger sisters and brother as her mother is always working. She and her friends decide to mess around with an Ouija board and talk to her dead father. The session goes wrong, Veronica starts to act strange since, and her friends are ignoring her. While back home things start to act up, she starts to see things, and her younger siblings are frighten to Hell. Veronica goes to Sister Death looking for help and exorcist the demon/ghost from her home.

So this film got a lot of hype and I figured I would check it out as some my twitter feeds and partners were saying it was not bad. Checking the film out it was not horrible, the teenage stuff does seem a repeated but some of the sounds and special effects were okay. I personally thought the best characters of the film was the younger children, Ivan Chavero stole the show for me. Not that Sandra Escacena was bad it was just her character. I really could not relate to her and did not overly care for. But some of scenes gave nice odes to past horror films like the hands reaching out of the bed, the blood stain on the bed, the appearing and disappearing old man and the ending action scene which leads to the end of the film.

Rating:  This film was no [ REC] , it was not a bad film but the scares were lacking and the ending was pretty predictable of the outcome. No twists or over surprises really. However, one thing I did like and some people are bitching about was the music. I am sorry but the keyboard music reminded me of the classic Goblin days of the Italian horror (which to me the gems of Horror) so that was a nice touch. But the film was lacking on the true scares but man Ivan Chavero with the glasses rocked!

6/10 Beers!
