Horror and Comedy! Finally
10 November 2010 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

I've been an avid follower of the horror/comedy sub genre since I can remember. The only movies that I really like that I remember are from the eighties *(Gremlins, Creepshow, An American werewolf in London), cause recently what they do is pass parodies like Scary Movie and Transilmania as Horror comedy, and what they really are is bad Comedies.

So when you have a movie, where the characters are believable, there's a slasher (a Ghost Nun nonetheless), and good special effects that not look like cheap CG. You as a lover of the Horror Comedy sub genre, feel pleased. This really is a cult movie.

It pays cult to the legend of the old Duran Sanatorium in Costa Rica, a place that is known to be plagued by Ghosts and legends. It pays cult to the old 80's horror movies and finally it pays cult to the found footage and mockumentary style. It's really an amazing mix, well crafted from beginning to end, following this ghost hunting team that are really young and funny to watch, cause the movie instead of being just build over the paranormal activity, it also builds around their own problems to produce the film and personalities making them likable enough, so when bad things start happening you care for them.

I give this movie a 9, cause I feel like it should've been longer, It's the first time in a long time that I didn't wanted the movie to end.
