Don't mess with old crones
9 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting little Spanish horror flick that promises much more than it delivers.

An old crone (Tota Alba) is abused by the police (Fernando Sancho) and enters the body of the young daughter of the police commissioner (Ángel del Pozo). There really are not the special effects that you find in another possession movie that is more familiar (The Exorcist), even though that is what they want you to think.

The young priest (Julián Mateos) performs a short exorcism to drive Satan out.

No real blood or violence except for a castration where you don't really see anything.
