Too little of "El Angel" escapes a second-hand, been-there, killed-that feeling.

The full story has been sacrificed in the service of maintaining the balance between horror and fascination. And Ferro really has created a fascinating screen character.

Dec 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The movie is made with skill, but it's so relentless in backing away from any psychologizing or moralizing - or just about anything else that might give us a handle on what makes this monster tick - that it finally feels like an empty horror show.

Ortega has a real eye for flashy, chaotic set pieces and a real ear for excellent Latin rock needle drops on the film's killer Scorsese-inspired soundtrack.

It's a hell of a story-spruced up and splashed on a big, colorful screen-with a lot to show but little to say.

El Angel is sensuous enough to suggest the work of Pedro Almodovar.
