Surprisingly decent Mexican horror, but not for fans of modern fright...
9 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you prefer more modern horror films where the gore is significant and the action is fast, you might not like this at all.

It is an eerie, yet slow-paced, retelling of the famous Monkey's Paw story, with some significant differences. What it has going for it is great atmosphere, a literate plot, some nice performances, and some well-done séance sequences with apparitions.

In this case, the paw is replaced by a disembodied human hand, which is a nice, gruesome touch. The aspect of the three wishes given to the holder of the paw (hand) is not relevant here, as instead the story involves calling upon satanic powers to grant financial benefit. There's no limit of wishes granted, but the sacrifice of one's soul for the desires granted.

Fans of older-styled pre-1950s horror ought to enjoy this.
