Not really that bad...
14 May 2008 | by GuineaPigSee all my reviews

La Maldición del Monasterio, as the original title goes, tells the story about a haunted monastery on a secluded Mexican town surrounded by gorgeous woods and mountains. The few town citizens become increasingly fearful of the strange things happening surrounding the monastery. Meanwhile, a young American girl and a Mexican psychology student arrive to the town to look for answers on their pasts which are strangely connected to the bizarre place.

The movie is pretty flawed, no doubt about that, but it manages to create a suspenseful and creepy atmosphere specially on the dream sequences of the American girl (with a great use of color) and the foggy nights on the old and ruined mysterious town.

A surprising and funny performance by Russ Tamblyn of West Side Story (1961) and Twin Peaks fame.
