A good movie, Interesting and Original.
7 September 2005 | by arronizmiguelSee all my reviews

I'm not a critic and I believe THEY JUST CAN'T ENJOY ANY MOVIE. If you persevere you can find errors even on the CLOUDS!

Me, a simple guy who loves to see movies, can ENJOY them without having to criticize anything, Just "Sit and Watch". Can say I liked the movie... or I didn't... And that's enough.

For everyone belonging to this group, let me tell you, SUPERSTITION is a good movie, with that European feeling... Artistic, interesting, where you actually can use your imagination and be engaged with the story.

The intervention of David Warner (one of my favorite Actors) is a blessing to the cast. The leading roles are very well done and the supporting actors too.

Perhaps the use of a more "Hollywood-Style-use-of-Songs" are something that crashed on my brain, but nothing too serious.

Movies in which a big part of them are spent on the Court room are something many will like from this one, since that's because a paranormal event, the better.

The publicity tries to involve something more "Satanic", but that's wrong... paranormal has nothing to do with it.

Don't try to find something like "The Exorcist"... This one might be considered as: "The X-Files meets Carrie"

As I always say, NEVER back up any critic unless you have seen the movie. A decent effort well done.
