Great Portuguese movie ...Suspense!
28 August 2010 | by oscarrogerSee all my reviews

A great movie, with suspense all the time. A story or legend typically Portuguese we many believe and others claim to have seen something spooky roaming through their skin when he sees the typical environments of the mountain, dark and full of mysticism!

Something different from the typical American movies, where the bloody wave and almost ridiculous scenes will take you to see the rest of the movie!

In Bad Thing, the simplicity of the actors and the extraordinary representation of some actors little known in Portugal, are the delights of the old suspense, the stories are typical of mountain, gaming spiritualism typical still in Portuguese villages, of which many will laugh and others much respect ... ---- If you want to see a thriller until the end no doubt see BAD THING!
