Some kind of movie with witches
6 April 2021 | by MandarinaMeliesSee all my reviews

We could say that 'Diablo Rojo PTY' is a baroque film, an audiovisual experiment that combines witches, witches who turn into demons, indigenous cannibals, Catholicism, teleportation, and the torment of the ghosts of the past.

In essence, it is a story of men harassed by witches, but the film strays almost at all times from the genre codes associated with that kind of plot. The music seems taken from an episode of Bugs Bunny, or one of the first Disney feature films. The influence of the Latin American soap opera is also noticeable, not only in the sentimental subplot, but also in the acting style, in the dialogues (although seasoned with a very realistic vulgar local language) and in the repetition of ideas and situations. The characterization of the witches is a hybrid between the 'Xena: Warrior Princess' series and a 'Kiss' or 'Mötley Crüe' show.

On the other hand, the erratic plot and sometimes slow action could be identified with some Jess Franco movies. Perhaps, a blend between Jess Franco and the telenovela 'María, la del barrio' is a quite enlightening way of defining this difficult-to-define film.
