El Deseo en Otono(1972) is a drama/horror/mystery film starring Maricruz Olivier and directed by Carlos Enrique Taboada. Olivier plays Elena, a chemistry teacher who has to deal with two spiteful students and a verbally abusive, insane mother. She endures happier times as her "hippy" friend moves in with her and she finds a good looking boyfriend. For some reason, the opening credits have a mellow English language song. Carlos Enrique Taboada makes us feel just as schizophrenic as Elena. Are people trying to harm Elena or is all this madness just in her mind? El Deseo en Otono is similar to Carrie(1976) and Psycho II(1983). The only extras on this DVD are a video spot for another film and a chapter index. El Deseo en Otono is hardly a simple good guys vs. bad guys story. Olivier plays a predator in this film. In one scene, the director films a spider in front of Elena's face. El Deseo en Otono is a solid film from 1970's Mexico.

Elena's mother lived only to make her daughter's life miserable. Now that she's gone, Elena (Maricruz Olivier) finds out she had a little treasure hidden and now is all hers. Since she always lived a simple life, her friend Clara (Sonia Furio) is trying to convince her to take a trip, go see the world, improve the old house... but Elena is not sure... she is not used to be alone and asks Clara to move in with her.
Clara is happy with the news, because, in the most intimate part of her being, she feels something special about Elena... So special that they both sleep in the same bed!
Elena finally takes that trip and goes to visit a relative, where she meets Victor (Guillermo Murray), a handsome and charming man and before coming back home, marries him.
When she sees them arriving, Clara is frozen with disbelief. Now Elena shows not only a new flashy wardrobe and hairdo, but a handsome husband to match! That is not good, she doesn't trust him and start seeing things Elena supposedly don't see, blinded by the passionate relationship.
Suspicion gets in Elena's head trough some anonymous notes she receive, and since she is not sure where they're coming from, she starts taking precautions.
Some little accidents around the house and the signature for a Life Insurance, makes Elena decide Victor is really something very different from what he say he is. Besides, Victor is a twice widower, and her former wives died in strange circumstances... is it right to doubt?
Clara moves out and Elena start seeing things in another way, soon she will find out who's right and who's wrong, hopefully not too late!

This is a very interesting movie with the ''Taboada'' touch of mystery and suspense.
