Not Mexi-Trash… Spanish greatness!
1 May 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

My sincerest apologies to the other reviewer, but "Dr. Curry" is clearly a Spanish production instead of a Mexican one and it certainly isn't trash! Quite the contrary, this is a very stylish and experimental short-movie that involved quite a lot of talented Spanish filmmakers both in front and behind the camera. The producer is no one less than Nacho Cerdà, who built up an enormous cult reputation with his own trilogy of short films centering on the theme of "Death" (of which "Aftermath" is unquestionably the most notorious one), multi-talented director Jaume Balagueró ("The Nameless", "Darkness") makes a brief but memorable appearance as a crazed priest and writer/director David Alcalde himself is currently working on a remake of "Who Can Kill A Child?", which is arguable the greatest Spanish horror film ever made. So you see, the crew of "Dr. Curry" definitely weren't amateurs and the film itself is an uniquely odd & creepy little gem that I highly recommend to all fans of obscure Euro-horror. The titular character is a brilliant but slightly deranged and power mad doctor who invented a pill that transforms people into braindead and maniacal beings. The authorities are after him and Curry attempts to flee, but the immense success of his own invention turns against him. His mistress, maid and even taxi drivers and airplane pilots are all addicted to the medicine and prevent Dr. Curry from leaving the country. The film deals with mad scientists and out-of-control medical experiments and, in combination with the classy black & white cinematography, it instantly reminds you of those fabulous European Gothic horror movies that came out during the late 50's and early 60's, like "Eyes Without A Face", "The Diabolical Dr. Z", "The Horrible Dr. Hitchcock" and many more. The set pieces at Dr. Timothy Curry's laboratory are lavish and the film even features some delightfully bloody murders and morbid images. This awesome little gem can be found on the German super-de-luxe DVD edition of Nacho Cerdà's trilogy of short films and it comes with my highest possible recommendation.
