Storyline

Tomás is a successful writer who has spent the last forty years living outside Spain. After the strange death of his wife, he receives an old tarot card, the love card, which has a strong meaning for him due to something that happened in his past. So he returns to the small village in which he was born and raised. He is haunted by memories of the tragic events from the long past. At a young age, he desperately fell in love with a mysterious woman, whom everyone in the district shunned, considering him a witch. She died a painful death during a fire - And now he is haunted by nightmares and visions, from which the blood freezes in his veins and her hair moves on his head. Here and there he sees the ghost of a woman. Overwhelmed by vague suspicions, he decides to go to the place where his beloved's house once stood . Written by lament

Morbid Love Story
30 October 2009 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Spain has a long and successful tradition of horror / supernatural cinema . Who can forget the spine chilling LA CABINA , a film that does for public phone boxes what JAWS does for trips to the sea side . We've also seen the likes PANS LABYRINTH and THE OTHERS become international hits opening to great critical acclaim . We even saw Danny Boyle's sequel to 28 DAYS LATER being directed by a Spanaird which turned out to be one of my favourite horror films ever so had a lot of expectations to seeing SPECTRE tonight . Afterwards I wouldn't say I was I was disappointed just that this movie has been advertised as a horror film when it's really a morbid love story with supernatural overtones

This isn't helped by the " Films To Keep You Awake " title sequence of having an animated pool of blood where a hand appears holding a human eyeball . It's grotesque and startling and gory which is everything SPECTRE is not . Instead we get a teenage boy , Tomas , being infatuated with a much older woman called Moira along with a subtext that is anti- religion as the catholic family and friends of Tomas decide Moira is a witch

With a longer running time perhaps the subtext could have been developed more since I'm the sort of person who can't get enough secular humanism in either real life or fiction . Instead director Mateo Gil concentrates on the love story . There's nothing wrong with this of course but for long passages of the movie you forget that this has any supernatural elements and when they do fleetingly appear they feel forced . Indeed you're left with the feeling perhaps the whole film would have worked better if there were no ghostly elements at all and the film portrayed religion and the small mindness of religious followers as the villain of the piece which would have certainly have made for a better ending
