Surely not the best Spanish horror.
7 July 2018 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

Sadly to say, Noctem didn't do it for me. I very much appreciate the Spanish cinema, but they don't do so good on the horror part as they manage to succeed on great thrillers. Of course one might argue that REC1,2 are masterpieces and I would have to agree, but overall they do far better on productions such as Julia's Eyes, Timecrimes, The Orphange and so on.

So, why did Noctem failed? Well first of all, it kinda looks like a mess. It tried to cover many layers at once and I do believe overall it just confused the viewer a lot. It had an idea, a plot yet its execution clearly wasn't the best. For a found footage movie it had a lot to live up to, because we expect something better, different after so many other such movies but this was not the case. We are given an mediocre execution and very few aspects that deliver.

Thus all in all I would not recommend Noctem because it really is one of the weakest Spanish horrors I've seen lately. You can clearly swift in another direction.
