sadly tedious supernatural murder mystery
24 November 2007 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

This starts off fairly promising, with a young woman following a dog into an old house, where she witnesses a woman being murdered on the stairs. When she returns with the police, the body is gone and the house has been left empty for years. One room has fresh flowers and lit candles in it, however, and the police indicate a murder had occurred in the house twenty-three years ago.

The young woman has visions of the dead woman's life, and sometimes feels she is that woman. She discovers a diary, which everyone else seems to want. The movie proceeds fairly slowly, and even a séance, a death by train, an ax in the forehead, a car running off a cliff, and man getting hit by a car don't really liven things up at all, unfortunately.

The picture for the 1983 Media Home Entertainment VHS is pretty dark, and the dubbing at times is comical, the dialogue or its tone not matching characters' expressions at all. While there are English-speaking actors in the cast, it doesn't sound like their voices were used for the English-dubbing of this Spanish movie. The end credits regrettably don't identify any of the characters.
