Lourdes is a young woman that works at night cleaning a restaurant. All the money she made is for her son that lives in her hometown with her mother. We know very little about Lourdes son, only that he is sick and Lourdes is working every night and sending money to help her son and find a cure for his illness. Suddenly, Lourdes starts seeing visions in the restaurant where she works, in her little apartment. These visions, her evil co-workers and her son apart from her, all this stresses Lourdes out and she begins asking herself "who wants to hurt her"? Or if all of whats happening is really happening or not.Written by
Devoured is indeed a good movie, I know the title may be a little harsh, but there are 2 kinds of truth here:
1) Is where you just watch the movie, go with the flow, discover what's happening, observe the beautiful and fantastic acting by Marta Milans, the director's choice in every move, overall, the story, you discover the story. And you'll love it, all the little details, and trust me there are many, all the pieces that come on by one, you'll start to feel the movie, connect with the main actor and maybe, even feel a strange symbiose between you and her. The minutes will past, you'll enjoy each and every one of them, hoping to find out some more, waiting to see the destination, the final stop and of course, eventually you will. At that point, you'll add another gem to your collection, for Devoured is a great little indie horror.
2) Now you'll have a different approach, a more realistic one, you won't go head first into the movie, you will stay your ground, and simply enjoy a movie. But then again, what is there to enjoy that much? The acting is brilliant, the story quite slow, the mood is kinda depressing, and the direction is very obvious kinda from the start. Just those new people into horror will be surprised by what will happen, the rest will simply call it "you've seen it once, you've seen it a million times". And most of you did!
Overall, a borefest may be the perfect word to sum up a bigger description. I could recommend it, or I could not, I guess it will come down to how the viewer will feel at that specific moment when the movie starts to play. But be careful what you look for, cause you ain't gonna find much thrill, much horror, much originality here, you'll just find a movie made with love, but maybe, not for you!
