4.0 out of 5 stars A bilingual, multi-cultural take on horror January 27, 2007
Format:DVD
Santeria is unique and interesting because it is both horror movie and cultural experience. It isn't the fastest paced horror movie available, nor is it the most frightening. It is a bilingual horror movie, thick with a mix of Catholicism, Santeria, and even Mayan faiths.

The story surrounds a young boy, Ricky, who sees visions of the Virgin Mary. Many in his community rally around him, believing that he is receiving a miracle. However others, including his perhaps mentally unstable cousin Sara, believe something far more sinister is happening. Others aren't sure what is happening, and the end of the film, it's most shocking sequence, doesn't provide easy answers.

One major downfall of the film is it's slow start. The first twenty minutes are, quite frankly, boring. If you can make it through, you're rewarded with a very fun, interesting horror movie for the next hour. It isn't polished by any means, and the special effects are pretty third rate- no big budget blockbuster here. What the film lacks in polish it makes up in heart. It's apparently a labor of love. The acting isn't bad at all, and the plot interesting.

All and all, this is a fun and entertaining horror movie, but because of the slow start and the bilingual aspect, it might not be for everyone. This is more `artistic' than `horrific' yet it's still good.

Recommended for those in the mood for a different sort of horror movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars YOUR PLACE IS WITH ME July 8, 2012
Format:DVD
You know you are in for a rough ride when the opening has "Virgin Mary sitings" as opposed to "sightings". The beginning of the film is a spoiler as it tells you how it ends. Little Ricky consumes a cursed Eucharist and begins to have Virgin Mary sightings, one which looks Mexican as opposed to the Nordic lily white Mary we all know is how she really appears. Some in the family believes he is demon possessed as he lays on the ground and stares aimlessly at the sky.

Next his sister Sara (Maria Fonseca Sotolongo) goes off her meds, and she starts seeing stuff too. Like I said, we already knows how it ends. How the film gets to that point is done in an extreme amateur fashion with bad acting and script. Film includes English subtitles when Spanish is spoken. Might have some MST value if it is free. Carmen (Nellie Gonzalez) is the closet thing to eye candy in this film (lingerie).

Parental Guide: No F-bombs, minor swearing. No sex, a couple starts to make love but stops. Some blurred demon nudity. Careers violently killed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible May 14, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like watching Independent Films but this was just crappy. Cinematography sucked...storyline made a mockery of Catholicism. Even the sound sucked. You could barely hear the people! Waste of the 1.95 I paid for it.
