A WEIRD MIX OF FRANCO, RUSSELL AND MOJICA MARINS
romanporno from Madrid
26 June 2001
I've been waiting so long for a new Jorge Molina feature! His most recent
cinematic aberration is not disapointing at all, but it needs (like his
other films) more than one view to apretiate it well. It is, as you can
spect, a mix of raw erotism, sinful sadism, weird horror, absurd humor and
an hermetic metaphor of love's final destiny. Strange but true, it all is
shown in `Molina's Test'. The cameos of great cuban artists are pretty
and the leading couple deliver, but the best part of the show comes in the
hand of the `evil couple' played with nerve by a menacing Luís Alberto
García and an extremely insane Zulema Clares, the revelation of the film.
Art direction and make up is something to be seen, too.
Maybe `Test' isn't Jorge Molina at his best, but it is without a doubt, a
highly disturbing movie that moves weird but successfully between the
influences of Jess Franco, José Mojica Marins and the finest Ken Russell.
instant classic of latin american horror.
