All Critics (20) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (1)

  • Most episodes of The Twilight Zone run 30 minutes, and there's barely enough material here to justify a feature, but Ezban makes it work.

  • This SF spoof eventually turns silly, but not in an interesting way.

  • In stylistic terms, however, The Similars is fully realized as a semi-camp yet canny homage to vintage suspense templates.

  • Los Parecidos is a beautiful looking, paranoia laden Mystery/Sci-Fi cross over that feels almost like an old Twilight Zone episode made by a talented crew of cinema lovers with modern effects.

    April 19, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Between The Incident and now The Similars (Los Parecidos), Isaac Ezban is proving himself to be one of the best directors of brainy sci-fi.

  • An original and worthy attempt to create quality Mexican sci-fi cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
