shocking for some but a bit too much of blah blah too
13 March 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Spanish horror flick in the David Lynch style it was told to me and it took me years to finally get a grip on it. Maybe I had to many expectations but at the end it wasn't my cup of tea.

I won't go into the story because otherwise I would tell the plot. But if you like Lynch or Jacob's Ladder (1990) then this is surely your thing. We do have strange personalities, like the old woman, and the devil himself is walking around and his victim will meet his daughter who strips before his eyes and give head. And maybe that the most shocking part for some, the nudity involved. There's one scene were our victim goes to a Gothic bar and takes a teenager with him, she goes fully naked and do make love with him. To be honest, that's what we think because there are dreams in dreams.

Nevertheless, maybe the gore lays in the fact that we do have corpses being ripped open for research and we do have gratuitous nudity. But overall, I do like art flicks but Fausto was a bit to much of blah blah.

Gore 1,5/5 Nudity 1,5/5 Effects 3/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
