119 days in a row…

119 days in a row at the cinema! Today I saw Spanish horror film Verónica.

 

The Spanish word for “ouija” is “ouija”, which could explain why there’s no difference between this ouija board film and every other ouija bored (😉) film ever made.

Fortunately, the (based on a true) story is well told, the directing (Paco Plaza, the same bloke who did made [REC]) is deft and the lead actress — 16-year-old Sandra Escacena — was deservedly nominated for a Goya for Best New Actress.

Bottom line: fans of the genre will enjoy Verónica…if they’re not too demanding. Out of a possible 10, I have 7 Fs to give.
