Surprise! One of the best "mystery" films ever is... Portuguese!
12 March 2006 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best movies in the "horror/mystery" category I've ever seen... In a small village, lost in the middle of Portugal, some myths and beliefs still subsists, although the progress registered in towns. People still think that the Devil is guilty for a lot of things and still believe that some of the dead haven't really left us. It is in this environment of fear and suspicious, that a Lisbon family arrives. A biology professor, with his wife, his three kids and his grandson (his daughter is a single mother), with very intellectual ideas and scientific thoughts that are no prepared at all to what they are going to face. That's when strange things begin to happen... I really enjoyed this movie! It has good performances, a very good cinematography and sound, and a very well written script. It grows up until it reaches a climax and does not fall into a gore movie or a stupid explanation. It has good characters, a good story and a good directing. And yes, it gives some chills...
