a good Brazilian horror
27 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

The horror genre has rarely big productions when it comes to Brazilian films, and when he was rarely the films was good, and it left me with one foot behind The Black Fables, plus the movie surprised me, makeup is very well done, the performances are medians for good, the four boys have a good chemistry, his performances are the compelling, the film is divided into 5 history. The Sewer Monster - in my opinion the weakest story is the one that has humor, and even works, more is not scary, the makeup is even good, the performances are average, and the end is very dull The Wolfman - better than the first, the picture is good, the costumes is also good, good enough to scare, and I found fairly predictable end. Saci - the story is quite interesting, the picture is quite grim, Visual Saci is different, more work, not enough to give scares, more than a little afraid. The Blonde in the bathroom - my favorite story of the film, the makeup is very good, the acting is good, the makeup is the most well made, the story is quite faithful to the legend, and some scares and quite scared. The House of Iara - is the shortest story, plus it is very interesting, the Demon makeup that appears in the film is very good, and the end is very strange. The Black Fables is a good horror movie, with good stories, an interesting script, makeup works in some stories, while others are a weak point, who knows the horror genre does not become more common in Brazilian films. Note 7.6
