I saw some of the reviews about it and I honestly think they missed the point here. The terror comes out not from the ghosts or the killings or the blood. It's true, they have gathered almost every cliché to make this one. But somehow, all these seem to be just the background for the true horror story. And what would that be? I think, in time we will watch the tension between the Harmon family. Something like "The Amityville Horror" comes to mind. A domestic drama that will reach to a tragic finale. If u watch carefully the background of the house, u will find out that most of the murders that took place in it, were committed because of a sick domestic environment. And the Harmon family is getting there...
I must say that I very much enjoyed the first part of La Herencia Valdemar. All the ingredients for a great film were there. A blend of Cthulhu Mythos, Aleister Crowley and Victorian scenery, all those together mixed very well and the outcome was inspiring and thrilling. Directing was brilliant, photography perfect, even the special effects were at least decent. I admit it. I loved it. And I was expecting the second part to be at least equal to the first. How wrong was I. After the first 5 minutes I lost track of what was going on in the film. The story line became blur and childish. As much as I loved the first part, this is a total screw up. There was absolutely no reason at all to make a second part. Its like painting a wonderful portrait and after u finish it, u spread a bucket of paint all over it and destroy it. And thats exactly what happened here... 3/10 for Cthulhu...
