The majority of critics have been unfair to this movie. This is a nice homage to the classics of the terror genre and to the world of Lovecraft. Aficionados will enjoy the references with delight.
The story is well told and interesting enough, and though it leaves some loose ends (the second installment will see the light on October), the main story (told in a large flashback) concludes in a spectacular climax that is something to be seen.
The production values are top notch.
The only setbacks are some pieces of dialog, too long and literary, that drag the pace in the middle section.
All in all, this is a remarkable first feature from director José Luis Alemán.
