Two reasons why I picked up this flick, first of all, it's a flick directed by Álex de la Iglesia who I knew from his classic El Dia De La Bestia (1995). Secondly this flick is hyped all over the internet as a must see. And still it's being compared to Peter Jacksons' Braindead (1992).
The reason is due the end we do have a enormous mother zombie or witch walking around. But before the final you have to sit through almost 2 hours of something I still can't place. Can't say that it attracted me as seen in the papers. In fact, I found it rather boring sometimes. But it's not all that bad, the effects used were okay. I also can't say that I had a smile on my face because it's being said that it should be funny too.
Some moments are a bit in the style of Monty Python like for example hanging on a cross and telling your partner just before being burned that you are gay and loving him for years. But it sin't Monty Python and somehow it did put a smile on my face but no more than that.
Not a masterpiece for me but more a misshaped puzzle of elements coming out of different ideas and trying to put that in one flick.
Sorry but for me no witching magick but indeed some director bitching.
