Atrocious (2010)

26 October 2011 8:11 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Fernando Berreda Luna

Starring: Christian Valencia, Clara Moraleda, Chus Pereiro, Sergi Martin

One of the unfortunate side effects of Paranormal Activity is that all found footage films are now getting compared to it. Additionally these films however original and separate from Paranormal Activity they may be, are marketed to us in such a way that we are forced to draw the inevitable similarities anyways. This may not be such a bad thing for films that are similar to Paranormal Activity but in Atrocious' case, the comparisons are simply not warranted. While Atrocious may be a film in the style of Paranormal Activity and the Blair Witch Project---it ultimately has nothing to do with either of those films.

And this will upset some people.

On April 4th of 2010, Spanish police reported the discovery of 37 hours of recorded evidence that shed some new light on a gruesome murder investigation. »

DVD Review: Atrocious

Atrocious

Stars: Cristian Valencia, Clara Moraleda, Chus Pereiro | Written and Directed by Fernando Barredo Luna

After receiving its UK premiere at this years London  Film4 FrightFest, found-footage horror Atrocious makes its way to DVD courtesy of the fine folks at Revolver Entertainment. The feature film debut of writer/director Fernando Barredo Luna, Atrocious is the latest in the long-line of horror movies originating from Europe to hit the UK, in fact this one, like its more famous compatriot [Rec], comes from from Spain and one can’t help but compare the two – a little unfair perhaps, but given the films’ clear similarities it seems inevitable.

The premise is simple: it’s early 2010 and the Quintanilla family travel to an old rural family farmhouse near Sitges (itself famous for its horror film festival ironically), for the the Easter holidays. To pass the time, teenage siblings Christian and July set about investigating the »

This week's new films

16 September 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

30 Minutes Or Less (15)

(Ruben Fleischer, 2011, Us) Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride. 83 mins

After the heights of The Social Network, Eisenberg is demoted to a lowly pizza delivery boy for this casual caper movie. He's driven to rob banks at the behest of McBride's criminal non-mastermind, with buddy Ansari roped in for comic effect. In fact, comic effect seems to be all this is after. Like a dodgy pizza, it's enjoyable at the time but nutritionally dubious, a bit thin, and just about gone cold by the time it's finished.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (15)

(Thomas Alfredson, 2011, UK/Fra/Ger) Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch. 127 mins

A very British spy thriller that dispenses with all that hasty pacing and coarse action in favour of well-tailored men talking in rooms. A complex, classy cold war mole-hunt that demands attention, but rewards it richly.

I Don't Know How She Does It (12A)

Atrocious – review

15 September 2011 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Yet another twist on the "found footage" theme, this Spanish ghost hunt is adding little new to the genre

Some urban legends should remain undisturbed; some "found footage" is better left buried. Atrocious is never quite in that league, exactly, but its camcorder histrionics feel secondhand, shop-worn and verging on redundant. Fernando Barreda Luna's micro-budget Spanish horror flick trails a pair of siblings on a fraught family vacation, through thick stands of bamboo, in search of a ghost. The kids are screaming and the camera joggles us to the point of nausea but, at the end, the film's big reveal is just a cheap, dull shimmer.

Rating: 2/5

Encapsulated Cinema: Atrocious, Exit 33, and The Violent Kind

30 August 2011 9:08 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I’m a big believer in keeping your expectations in check. If you let them run wild, chances are you’re going to end up with a big ol’ meaty wad of bitter disappointment lodged in your gut. I didn’t heed my own advice this week, and now I’m going to complain about it for a moment. Sorry. Here they are, in no particular order. ——— Atrocious For a lot of people, the “found footage” subgenre is the lowest form of horror entertainment. The jump scares, the nauseating camerawork, the complete lack of originality — it’s the cheapest and easiest way to lure large groups of teenagers into darkened theaters all across the globe. I, however, have an endless love for these flicks, and am quick to forgive their collective shortcomings whenever someone starts cutting them down. Writer/director Fernando Barreda Luna’s 2010 shocker “Atrocious” is one exception to that rule. »

FrightFest 2011 Review: Atrocious

28 August 2011 1:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

If one of Frightfest’s strongest entries so far, The Troll Hunter, represents a fresh take on the found footage film, then Atrocious is its antithesis; an altogether more familiar, by-the-book effort which generates a few palpable thrills yet ultimately outstays its welcome, even at a meagre 75 minutes. Fans of low-budget indie horror might be able to forgive it, but for the rest of us it frustratingly squanders some eerie promise.

Christian (Cristian Valencia) and his sister July are obsessed with urban legends, visiting hotspots, recording any findings and then sharing them online. Their latest excursion is curtailed, however, when their parents whisk them away to a remote holiday home in Sitges. Fortune arises, though, once they learn of a local legend called The Girl in the Garraf Woods, and it’s not long before they sneak away to investigate said wood, located just behind their house. »

Late Summer Horrors

21 August 2011 4:51 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"'Even a Man Who is Pure in Heart': Filmic Horror, Popular Religion and the Spectral Underside of History," an essay that appeared in the Journal of Religion and Popular Culture in 2005, piqued Michael Guillén's interest in its author, Mario DeGiglio-Bellemare, "a native Montrealer and 'monster kid' who teaches courses on genre cinema and monsters in the Humanities department of John Abbott College." So they met up a few weeks ago at the Fantasia International Film Festival and Michael's transcription of their conversation — touching on national identities, filmmakers who straddle the high and the low, "the knowledge systems of ordinary people" and more — is one of the week's best reads, which is why I wanted to point it out right at the top of this little roundup of horror-related items.

The splashiest of these will surely be Jason Zinoman's survey of "a diverse collection of filmmakers about the scariest movie they'd »

Atrocious is Scary as Hell

9 August 2011 8:04 AM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Atrocious is directed by Fernando Barreda Luna (Darkness) and stars Rafael Amaya, Jose Masegosa and Chus Pereiro. Atrocious begins in predictable fashion but builds to become one of the scariest films to come out in years. In Atrocious it’s dark, then light again, then dark yet again in different environments; and all the while a mostly (but not completely) unseen menace stalks and hunts like a specter in a bad dream. Atrocious is definitely low-budget and doesn’t break any barriers regarding production quality or performances. What this film does do better than any in recent memory is capture the raw fear of those in peril in a way that transfers »
