Watch the complete Paco Plaza Quadrilogy to compare it to this ... Start with Rec :D
14 January 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

I'v been living in Valencia for the past two years and the first thing i knew about this city before coming in here is that Paco Plaza is from this city ... man this guy is just genius,, Starting from Rec. trilogy and ending up with this unusual creepy "original on its way" Ouija board Horror.

The plot as common and boring as it would sound ,, a Ouija board turns into evil supernatural force fight, yet Paco made it look more original especially adding these "true story" stuff at the beginning and the end which usually freaks me out, and then splashing it with mysterious jumpy moments,, i mean for a guy who don't scare easily, i flinched more than a couple of times in here.

The cast was good in general, not interacted with most, but that actress Sandra Escacena "Veronica", man!! for a first time big screen actress she can really act and convince .

The cinematography was fine for a regular horror movie,, yet to be precise and honest in some scenes "when the hand of that evil spirit comes out or shocks someone" it was creepy but not using the best out there,, to makes-up or whatever makes these things,, but it did not effect the superiority of the creepiness of the movie or the authenticity of these jumpy moments.

Final thought,, been watching Spanish movies for a while now,, so when i say this movie is one of the Top 20 best movies in my list, and one of the few top best horror movies so you gotta take it seriously ;)
