This stunningly derivative Latin ghost chiller might have had audiences Jackson Pollocking their underwear 10 years ago. Now (unless you've spent the past decade down a well), only the sheer poverty of ideas is terrifying.
In terms of mood, it is masterful, however, the film falls down slightly due to a surfeit of subplots.
Supernatural thriller elements finally combine with an old Mexican folk legend.
So what bit of this stylishly made, relentlessly silly horror film is "based on real events", exactly?
It's all too familiar for its own good, and isn't helped by the screenplay's meandering subplots about the twin sisters' past and their loves in the present.
Solid performances and a well-manifested sense of the supernatural makes KM 31 a journey worth taking.
A standard shudder picture, with an impressive, chilling apparition.
Mexico's first ghost story in decades is slick and well-crafted, but fails to distinguish itself or find its way to a satisfying ending.
It is obvious that this movie s higly influenced by J-Horror movies.
Good performances, dark cinematography and good special effects, but the the author and the director were not able to give a suitable resolution to the plot and I was absolutely frustrated with the awful ending.
Not bad at all but not a movie a would recommend.
I had a huge expectations on this Movie, but already after 30 minutes I figured out what was going on the km 31. Watched it to end and I said to myself "never trust the Trailers." lol
So I watch this on the same day as They. The first scene is incredibly familiar and illustrates exactly what is wrong with horror today. The films were made a few years apart, in completely different countries and I'm not accusing of plagiarism as the scene wasn't that original to begin with. Somebody is driving along at night on an empty road. The radio starts to act up and as the driver looks down to try and sort out the problem something dives in front of the car. The car stops and the driver gets out and uses a torch to find what they have hit. It's boring, boring horror as it is familiar and not scary. The rest of the film is okay, looking grim and well paced. Of course there's some old woman who knows everything, avoiding the need to do any investigation work. The ending is the same as any recent ghost story with our human friends trying to bring piece to the one at unrest. The relationship between the main three characters is wonderful, as is the policeman pointlessly investigating years worths of ghost sightings. Unfortunately it's just all same ol' same ol'.
A mexican attempt at milking the cow of the Ringu/Ju On horror vein with very poor results. The story feels just way too familiar for anyone who has seen at least one or two of those type of flicks. Forgettable and generic, mexican horror films of the 60's had way more visual creativity than this.
La copia mexicana de Ring, filtrada con la copia gringa. Lo siento pero dos copias (ambas chafas) pegadas juntas no suman un acierto.
