En 2017, Críticas, English por Néstor JuezDeja un comentario

I´ve been slowly getting into horror movies for the last six years, and I really consider myself a fan by now, as I think that´s such a mastodontic genre that includes many forgotten little gems between the crap. And little horror movies in recent times have been premiered with more hype and both popular and critical acclaim than Andrés Muschietti´s …

Even though my first encounter with his ouvre, The deep blue sea, was a little bit sour, I´ve always appreciated the style, elegance and wisdom of veteran British filmmaker Terence Davies´career, specially after watching his previous movie, the great Sunset Song.
