Critic Reviews for Superstition (Superstición)

... it's the kind of movie that's better seen in a TV rerun at home, where at least beer is handy.

If you're in the mood for a low-budget 80s curio with pretty good practical effects and inventive death scenes, Superstition is worth sitting a spell.

December 23, 2006 | Full Review…

45 seconds of half-decent gore mired in a movie so lifeless it's almost scary. Almost.

Audience Reviews for Superstition (Superstición)

A hidden gem amongst horror films. It's definitely not perfect and it's filled with plot holes, but it's got some balls and you can't say that about all horror films of the era it came out in. First of all, everybody gets it in this one. The young, the old...even the priests. Several of the death sequences in this are spectacular, as is the soundtrack. This movie definitely reeks of an Argento rip off. Everything from the rock and roll score, the camera angles and moves, and even right down to the subject's got Dario Argento written all over it. I do believe this was intentional. If not, it's an astounding coincidence. Regardless, it still holds your interest all the way through. It has genuine jumps and scares and really delivers on the violence and gore. I can't believe this isn't a more popular underground film. It's a real shame because this one could be a great midnight circuit player. Definitely check it out if you can find it.
