Superstition (Superstición) Reviews

    Dry, dreary and too long even at 80 minutes, Superstition is 45 seconds of half-decent gore mired in a movie so lifeless it's almost scary. Almost.

    Surprisingly effecting early-80's low-budget horror flick. With creative death scenes and very well paced, it is quite good for its era and /budget. The Goblin-esque score helps quite a bit. Worth a peak.

    Really bad 80's schlocky horror gone horribly wrong.

    Wonderful horror movie in the style of giallo horror. There is lots of blood and a great story (although there is some silly plot holes...but who cares about that when having this much fun). The characters are pretty good too, not just one dimensional death fodder, but real characters who behave as their characters would. Superstition is ambitious. Actually having a kid getting sliced and diced is not something that is normally done in horror movies, and this movie is brazen about it. Add to that the other crazy deaths and you have a real gem.

    Hokey schlock that takes itself far too seriously, and although I give it points for some nifty gore and an "anybody could die!" feeling, it's just not scary or outrageous enough to be worth checking out.

    An old house owned by the Church is hanunted by a witch who was drowned nearly 300 years ago. The witch's spirit lives as she was the daughter of Satan(!) and posesses things like a power saw blade and a microwave. A decent start goes south.

    this is ok not great. a couple pretty good scenes like the kid in the window & microwave-head at the beginning, and the priest in the chair.

    It's been twenty five years since I last seen this and it still holds together as a great little horror film with some excellent effects, big scares and a strong feeling of menace throughout.
