Editorial Reviews

In the tradition of THE DEVIL S BACKBONE comes the internationally acclaimed Argentine/Spanish horror saga from writer/director Paco Cabezas. During a road trip to visit their dying father, an estranged brother and sister discover a hidden diary that reveals a family legacy of fear and torture. But when past and present begin to collide, the siblings must confront the truth behind the trail of 'the disappeared': 30 000 people kidnapped and murdered under Argentina's military dictatorship...some of whom may have now returned to our world. Ruth Díaz and Javier Pereira star in this startling combination of supernatural chiller and shocking political thriller that Eye For Film hails as a modern ghost story made with commitment, passion and effective terror.

Drive a mile down the road, take a nap.

It was eery, intense with it's share of action, but what surprised me the most was that it was a very emotionally moving picture.
MirMar
Glad they subtitled this movie, as it was very well made, great plot line and well acted.

This movie was quite a pleasant and horrifying surprise! It was well directed with a pervasive sense of dread, nail-biting suspense, and delivers several jolting shocks of terror. The only problem I had with it were a few instances where characters suddenly do stupid things that go against all rational judgement under the circumstances. Aside from a few of these flaws (sure to be exploited by the haters) the movie overall is very tight and some scenes of suspense are VERY INTENSE. There are some stunning revelations as well, which makes it more interesting than your average horror movie. The political aspect of the story isn't overpowering and is only briefly discussed, providing a suitable backdrop for the horror. There are really no boring scenes and there is an abundance of stark terror that will surely satisfy those looking for real scares. Yes, this is a Spanish language movie with subtitles but those who won't watch movies just because they have subtitles will be missing a great movie.

This is a horror movie with the sub genre of haunting or ghost story and let me tell you, good ghost stories are hard to come by. It had at least one or two "jump out of your seat" moments. It was eery, intense with it's share of action, but what surprised me the most was that it was a very emotionally moving picture.

I like to multitask so for me to sit and watch a movie with subtitles the movie has to be well worth it and this one was! I know just enough Spanish to know that at least some of the subtitles were way off, but the visuals told such a good story I didn't care. I couldn't fold clothes or sort through my mail or Ebay or shop, but I am glad because it was well worth my full attention and I didn't lose interest. I usually don't want to watch horror before bed, but the ending didn't leave me too afraid to go down into my dungeon to sleep. :) That is not to say I won't have nightmares, but that's part of the fun!

A thinking man's horror film that will chill your bones. Brilliant and spine-tingling. If you're a fan of supernatural thrillers, this is the film for you. Best I've seen in years.

well, i must admit i'm easy in that put the word "supernatural" in the description and i have to at least check it out. but this was, if not entirely unpredictable, well told, and very well performed, with even an element of morality play - not overdone. in the sense that the evil that humans do haunts us all, what indeed surrounds us? the question is not philosophical, although it's symbolism is unmistakable. i gave it 5 stars.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film, had a pretty decent plot. Although listed under a horror genre it doesn't come across like a typical horror/slasher flick, this movie has a more ghostly/thriller feel and there's an actual story behind it and not a bunch of teenagers being chased by chainsaws. A few bloody scenes but it is not scary. Took a little while to figure out for sure what was going on but towards the end it all starts to come together.

The Spanish Cinema has come into its own in the Horror genre with ground breaking directors like Guglielmo Del Toro making their notch on the scene and also superior fare such as 'THE ORPHANAGE' , "SHIVER' and the two 'REC' films but nobody has hit the traditional ghost story like Director Paco Cabeza's 'THE APPEARED'. With tributes to 'THE SHINING' and Aussie road movies, Cabeza gives us a truly terrifying tale of hauntings and spatial time disruptions entering into the every day lives of brother and sister Pablo and Malena acted brilliantly by Ruth Diaz and Javier Pereira. With a haunting music score by Oscar Araujo and chilling photography by Andrew Rebes, this is the best ghost story to arrive on the scene in many a year and I pray that Hollywood doesn't get its hands on it for an unnecessary remake. Highly recommended.

Shortly after the movie begins, you feel very fond of the extremely likeable protagonist, Pablo, though his hard-boiled sister, Malena, takes a bit longer to care about. It's hard to summarize this movie without giving away key parts of the plot - your anxiety and fear for the sister and brother accelerate immensely as the movie progresses and they begin seeing very clear and realistic ghosts from a past that increasingly seems connected to them.

This movie is well done, but it takes a very long time to tell the story and there are some pretty violent, repetitive scenes of the murder of a family that connects to their own past. I think the end did not tie up very strongly, though I found the the last moments to be very moving - showing in a very graphic way the sacrifices that have been made for Spain by the victims of its past. Although not as strong as Il Orfanato or The Devil's Backbone, this is another film that suggests a brilliantly developing film genre in Spain.

Good acting and a decent storyline, but what most reviewers aren't mentioning is the way this tale of horror is conveying the tragedies of the many people who "disappeared" under totalitarian regimes - often tortured then killed. It's worth the watch - and it will make you think.
