    gothic ghost story in the tradition of 'the innocents' and other evil/possessed children genre. a lot of fun

    Part II of what is called the Gothic Trilogy from the Mexican director Carlos Enrique Taboada, my favorite.and in my opinion the most interesting. The movie is filled with creepy images, a dark atmosphere, ghostly settings and scary images. The atmosphere is created with intrepid camera angles, fog, and an excellent soundtrack.

    Carlos Enrique Taboada did not make a single improvement since Hasta el Viento Tiene Miedo (1968). In fact, his filmic style is less independent. However, a touch of fantasy has been included and it IS scary! An extraordinary leading role thanks to Marga López enlightens Taboada's macabre style and the blasphemous themes are not as scandalous as they are praised to be, but they hold some degree of cult status. Creepy experience, indeed. 91/100

    Silvia is a young girl who claims she communicates and plays with Hugo, a statue of a young boy holding a book. Her father and stepmother are somewhat concerned and hire a nanny to look after Silvia. Strange and dangerous things begin to happen around the house and the tension grows. I just finished watching this little known Mexican horror film, and despite my lack of knowledge of Spanish and the lack of subtitles on the DVD, I was quite impressed with it. It was a slow burning and very atmospheric thriller that reminded me a lot of Jack Clayton's "The Innocents", which is one of my favourite ghost stories of all time. The acting was solid, the settings were appropriate, the tension built well and the appearances of Hugo were unexpected and startling leading to a few quite eerie moments and the ending is chilling. I wish I understood more of the dialog so that I could catch all of the details of the story, but even without, the movie is understandable and worth watching.
