Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil is a re-telling of an ancient fable about a Blacksmith who finds himself battling the Devil. In this story the Blacksmith has captured a demon and lives a life of hermit-like seclusion away from the prying eyes of the townsfolk. All is going well until a desperate little girl, Usue, accidentally stumbles across the devil and unknowingly releases him. It is then left to the Blacksmith to reclaim his bounty, but this is easier said than done as he also finds himself at the end of a lynch mob that have come searching for the missing Usue.Written by

I'm not sure what is not to like about this movie. Although I don't mind horror movies, this was told in a way without any cheap scare tactics and drawn out suspense scenes. I enjoyed the characters of the story and was very pleasantly surprised at how well the costumes and special effects were. Not top budget special effects but what they used served this kind of movie perfectly.
What might seem like a very dark, scary horror movie on the surface ends up being a very interesting story delivered in a way that I think a wider audience will enjoy. I'm sure it would be disturbing for small children, but it certainly won't keep any teenagers or adults awake at night.
If the description of the movie that IMDB gives sounds like something your interested in, then give it a shot. I think you will end up enjoying this foreign gem.
One last note, I watched it in its original language with subtitles. I don't know if watching it dubbed in English would take away from the experience or not.
