Just what the genre needed
19 October 2005 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

I went to see this film at Screamfest Los Angeles last night with very high hopes, but expecting to be disappointed. I love the genre but am getting a bit tired of seeing the same stories redone and interpreted in the same ways over and over again. The Ring was a breath of fresh air, but now that has been done to death as well. I went to see Curandero really hoping to see something original. I was not disappointed. In regards to the visual look, the performances, the overall feel of the film, etc all I can say is WOW! This is not a mega budget film packed with computer generated monsters etc yet the fx in the film where great and just enough to add to the story and not overshadow it. The film-making is really what stands out. I highly recommend this film. I have to tell you that I watch and work within the genre and am pretty desensitized to a lot of it. It is hard for me to even flinch while watching horror films as I can usually see a scare coming from a mile away. This film made me not only flinch, but I almost jumped out of my seat a few times. I don't know much about the director Eduardo Rodriguez, but after watching the feature, I am sure that he is on his way to new heights. Watch this film, you won't be disappointed.
