Raw Horror
21 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also saw this movie at Screamfest and I loved it. The story was great and kudos to Eduardo Rodriguez for an excellent job at directing and editing this film. The look of the film was great, real gritty and plenty of blood. It's good to see a fictional insight into a real world that deals with criminals and black magic. It's nice to go watch a horror movie that does not involve silly teenagers or is bombarded with the in-style music of the time. Sure, there are some movies like that, that I enjoy, but I prefer the more realistic ones. This movie contains a little bit of everything including the supernatural, but it lets the audience decide whether it's real or not.
