TL;DR – A visually compelling horror film that does not quite have the story depth to back it up
Score – 3 out of 5 stars
Post-Credit Scene – There is no post-credit scene
If you could bottle creepy? In what form would it take. There would be the
bumps in the night, the flickering lights, the things of the past that you had
thought forgotten, occult rituals in the night, little girls with more knowledge
than they should have, creepy crawlies the sound of a ventilator and heart
monitor beeping in the distance. Well if that is what it takes then La Influencia is that and more.
So to set the scene, Sara (Maggie Civantos), her husband Mikel (Alain Hernández),
and daughter Nora (Claudia Placer) are on their way back to Sara’s family home.
Sara has not been back in years after a falling out with the mother Victoria (Emma
Suárez). After the death of her husband, Victoria delved into the world of the
occult and brought her family with her. Now she is just an old lady strapped to
a ventilator after having a stroke. But as Nora becomes closer and closer to
her comatose grandmother, things start to go wrong around town.
TL;DR – If you have a deep-seated fear of spiders, well this might be one of those hide behind the coach kind of episodes for you.
Score – 4 out of 5 stars
Today we continue looking at Doctor Who’s 11th season, a season with a lot of promise but also some recurring issues. This has created a bit of a problem that you see all the good they are trying to do, but also how they are being held back for some odd reasons. Well, today we come crashing back to Earth for a creepy episode just in time for Halloween that is going back to a Doctor Who staples, monsters, running, and the failure of capitalism, oh my.
