Audience Reviews for We Are Not Alone (No estamos solos)
I've always been superstitious. Well, not always, just since I hit the age of reason and free thought. That age, as it is for most people, is 13. I grew up in a religious family. Not hardcore religious, like my family never went to church as far as I can remember, but my mom, aunt and grandmother (whom I was raised by, more my mom/aunt than grandmother) are all believers, in a sense. One of the things about them that I appreciate the most about how they raised me is the fact that they never once pushed their religion on me. They never once forced me to go to any religious activities against my will and I couldn't be more thankful for that. I think most people who grow up in homes where they're forced to practice a religion grow up afraid of exploring other options. They feel afraid that they're gonna piss off some omnipotent being if they venture too far from their faith. Why did I start with this? I don't really know, I guess the whole concept of a haunted house is so played out that I didn't really even know any other way to start this review. And, really, it plays into the film, since it relies on superstitious themes such as vengeful ghosts/demons and all that jazz. With that said, I would like to visit some haunted places in my time, just to experience it for myself, skepticism and all. Moving on to the film, there's nothing really wrong with this movie in the slightest. It's a competently made movie all things considered. It does a lot of things right, technically speaking. But, to be fair, those elements don't always necessarily add up to make a good movie. And that's what I would say about this movie. It's not bad, not even close, but it's a movie that I've seen so many times before, done better by other filmmakers that there's nothing here that I can say is unique to this flick at all. That's not even a problem, per se, as I've seen plenty of movies that have no unique bones in their bodies that are still good. Sing, just as an example, is one of those movies. There's nothing new to it and I still had a fun time watching it. But there's just something about this movie that feels off. That might not be even the best way to describe it, but everything about this feels a little uninspired and uninteresting. Like I said, t's not bad, but this is every haunted house horror movie you've ever seen. Family moves into an isolated house to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city (I'm assuming), before strange events start to happen. Someone was murdered in this house and its spirit is still roaming the halls, searching for unsuspecting victims to fuck over or something. Naturally one of the characters, in this case Mateo, doesn't buy what Sofia and Monica are saying until, eventually, he comes face to face with it himself. ZzZzZzZzZzZz. Seriously though, you get my point. It's a repetitive movie with predictable story and execution. One of the benefits of this movie is that, without credits, it's like 71 minutes long or something. So you'll be able to get through this quickly. It's not a movie that will make you rip your hair out in frustration. It's competently written, but it offers nothing memorable in terms of its horror. Again, it's all stuff you have seen before. Hell, Demon Inside with Paz Vega (that I just reviewed recently) is very similar to this and, while I wouldn't say it was a good movie, had better execution and it, at least, made an effort to add some different touches that made it feel like it was a movie that could stand out on its own. This movie doesn't really do any of that, so it's not gonna be a movie that a lot of people will really wind up giving a shot too when they know there's similar flicks that are considerably better. The acting is at least decent enough. Some of the characters are unlikable, mostly Mateo, but the cast gets the job done. I hate to repeat myself, but this isn't a bad movie. I'd call it watchable, at best, but I can't really recommend it. It's serviceable enough, but you don't really need to watch this at all. There's better films out there that deserve your time. Like Crush The Skull, The Devil's Candy, The Void. Give those a shot instead.
