"During a solar eclipse, young Verónica and her friends want to summon the spirit of Verónica’s father using an Ouija board. However, during the session she loses consciousness and soon it becomes clear that evil demons have arrived."
This Spanish horror film is not without its hype. When it was released on Netflix earlier this year, many dubbed it the scariest movie ever made. That is certainly debatable, but critics do like the film for the most part. It holds an 89% score on Rotten Tomatoes and the reviews are mostly good. While an argument can be made that perhaps too much hype has gone into the film, the fact is that it’s a solid horror movie, so it’s not a bad idea to see what the fuss is about and check it out.
