It's a nice supernatural film
31 January 2009 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

COISA RUIM is a supernatural film about a family which lives in the city and moves to a house (a heritance) in a little village in the rural Portugal. It crosses many topics, from the paranormal and the superstitious believes to the philosophical discussion about religion vs science. It's about ghosts, faith, superstition, rural traditions and religion, but it is most of all an interesting film that focus all these topics in a good and entertaining story. I don't consider this movie fits in the horror or suspenseful genre (even because it's too slow paced for that) but I think it's a good supernatural and mysterious story that could fit in the "haunted house" genre. The production is good and the cinematography either (one more time the director Tiago Guedes did a nice job; I already did enjoy his other movie ALTA FIDELIDADE), but the acting could have been better and the musical score too. In fact I think a movie with this thematic should have had a different and more suspenseful soundtrack.
