Daniel de la Vega is quickly becoming not only one of the best horror directors in Argentina, but one of the best in world cinema for the simple fact that he has his own style! Yes his films have some problems, but the creativity he possesses is something to be applauded in a world full of remakes and generic garbage. Being a very self aware director, he plays the audience along on a string. Creating generic moments, giving the viewer a false sense of security and then pulling the rug from under them. He did this in his other movies (Necrofobia and Hermanos de Sangre) and its no different in Ataud Blanco. Strange, disturbing and very fast paced, Ataud Blanco doesn't allow itself to get boring and will constantly have the viewer on edge, because of the directors ability to play with the audience! High end production, along with solid acting, allows the dreaded atmosphere to soak through the screen and strangle the audience right up until its shocking climax! This is definitely a film that wont appeal to the masses, It can be very confusing and vague at times, but if you like your movies that are very strange and violent, then this one is right up your alley!
