El Muerto
15 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a great little movie. I love everything Day of the Dead and have been to Mexico several times and really enjoy the festival. This movie captures a lot of the feel of the holiday, set in a border town. The lead's costume is wonderful. I saw this with my boyfriend and while he liked it a lot, he found the ancient mythologies confusing. I figure that almost no one around can tell you a thing about Aztec, Mayan and Inca gods so I just accepted it all that it made sense. The acting is excellent. The eeriness was there, and the settings, particularly the cemetery, worked. I'm so happy to see a film like this out there. It shows that horror is a multi-dimensional genre and that not all films are Jason and Freddie. Kudos to the makers of this soft horror film. I hope it's successful for you.
