Storyline

This is the story of Ariel Lambert, a twenty year old, who is advised to rest in a quiet place after a psychiatric episode. He moves together with his mother and sister to Villa Mar, small seaside resort, which is practically deserted at that time of the year. Slowly, Ariel discovers that children go into a house nearby, (which is supposed to be derelict) and they never come out again. Is this happening for real? Or is it only a figment of Ariel's sick mind? There will be only one way to find out: Ariel will have to go into the house himself Written by Jon Medek

amazingly good
17 September 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

It is the first time I write a review on IMDb. I think people write reviews here for shouting angry when they saw a bad movie or to express their satisfaction when they saw a good one. This is my case. There are other people who love movies and like to be able to post their opinions on the net. Also, of course, there are people who write just to vent their frustrations.

Winter Visitor is one of the best horror films I've seen. I don't say this because I'm from Argentina. I was skeptic: a horror movie from Argentina? What can I expect? Argentinean horror films had a very bad reputation inside Argentina: That's way no producer wanted to put money on this kind of pictures.

Not only I liked it but also exceeded my expectations.

The are many reasons and I only enumerate a few: the acting is excellent, from the smaller role to the main character, Ariel (Santiago Predero) who achieves an amazing level of credibility. The actors direction and staging are great.

Esquenazi manages to get us into this nightmare with a level of realism rare in horror films. Another excellent decision are the locations: forest, sea shore, all this help to create a distinctive atmosphere, cold and oppressive. The idea of a murderer from the past reincarnated in a person from today is original and interesting.

If you expect plot explanations in the form of speeches you will not find it in this film. If you want just blood and gust with no story, this is not for you. Leaving aside the fact that Winter Visitor is a film from Argentina, is the kind of great horror film that only appear once every three or four years.
