Gore Used to Perfection
22 September 2004 | by (State College, Pa) – See all my reviews

This might be the most disturbing, gut wrenching 20 min film that I have ever seen. I loved it. I saw Amor So de Mae as a precursor to The Last Horror Movie during the 2004 Philadelphia Film Festival, and was blown away by the chilling tale of sexual obsession and voodoo. I would highly recommend this short film purely for the atmosphere and sicking tension built by Ramalho. Also, as the title of this review suggests, the film contained a hefty amount of blood; however the use of this gore did not seem to be for the sake of a blood lusting audience. A warning to parents: not for children. A rare treat this film is. 10 of 10.
