Argentinian fail
16 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

PENUMBRA is a waste of time film, one of those I saw in the schedules late at night. It was marked as a horror movie so I thought I'd give it a go, but I wish I hadn't: this is a worthless, amateurish film with barely any plot, full of dull dialogue that seems to have been ad-libbed by an uninterested cast.

This no-budget movie involves an unpleasant estate agent who spends half the running time on her mobile phone - that never makes for great entertainment. Mild interest is evoked when she's attacked early on by a homeless man, but this sub-plot doesn't seem to go anywhere. Instead, the estate agent has to deal with a number of bizarre characters who are congregating inside an apartment she has available for rent.

PENUMBRA is a slow, slow movie in which very little of substance actually happens. The background of a solar eclipse is interesting but nothing happens with it. The horror is limited to the last scene and when it comes it's so predictable that you wonder what you were waiting for all that time. The acting is also very basic, but the biggest problem is with the writing/directing partnership, which falls flat all the while. Somebody show these guys how to make a real movie!
