Editorial Reviews

AKA: El Grito de la Muerte
. In this eerie atmospheric reinvention of a timeless Mexican legend and Edgar Allen Poe's classic The Premature Burial, a Cowboy (Gastón Santos) and his partner, Crazy Wolf (Pedro de Aguillón), stop at an eerie ranch to learn more of about a stone figure they've unearthed that depicts a crying woman. The ranch's odd, off-kilter residents tell them that the statue, and another just like it, was created by the now-dead Clotilde (Carolina Barrett), whose ghost has been sighted by local villagers ... crying.

What's not to love? A Mexican 'ranchera' horror movie western, with the hero dressed in immaculate near-white (even after pulling himself from a filthy swamp), a Mantan Morland-type sidekick (who quivers and goes bug-eyed at each 'ghostly' apparition, hiding from danger and moaning and groaning about how he just wants to go to sleep), a special appearance by the uniquely Mexican horror movie villainess, 'La 'Llorona,' (the ghost of a woman searching for her missing children... 'Ayyyy, mis hijos!!!') and a white palomino stallion (Caballo de Plata) who comes to the aid of his master time and again, saving him from all sorts of perilous situations. The list goes on and on. 50s horror flick fans will also spot sets left over from the made-in-Mexico classic 'Beast of Hollow Mountain,' also shot on the Churubusco Studios backlot in 1956. Unfortunately, there are no abrupt cuts to wrestling matches and or lengthy 'ranchera' musical interludes.

Pretty good Mexican made horror film. A cowboy and his sidekick stop off at a hacienda to ask about a carving of a crying woman he received that came from there. 1. The occupants don't give him much info about the figurine. 2. The folks there act all freaked out and walk on eggs. 3. The rancho is as creepy, gloomy, and doomy as any haunted house hunter would wish for. That would be more of a tip-off anyone would need to make tracks away from there. The cowboy sticks around to help the young heiress solve all her haunted, cursed house problems. Very entertaining and only 71 minutes long so it doesn't wear out its welcome. The Casa Negra DVD has both the Spanish-language and the English-dubbed versions included. The picture and color is fine and as good as one can get. Any Casa Negra DVD release is worth getting. Only a few of these Mexican-made horror films were released by them. I hope they release more someday. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

During the 1950s, producer Alfredo Ripstein lensed a series of films around successful horseback matador Gaston Santos. Generally rurales entries, three in particular (EL GRITO DE LA HUERTE, EL PANTANO DE LAS ANIMAS and LA FLECHA ENVENENNADA, emerged as quirky "PERIOD" mysteries. the LIVING COFFIN (EL GRITO DE LA MUERTE) reteams Gaston with comic relief Pedro de Aguillón in the mystery surrounding an isolated hacienda and a corpse which vanishes from its tomb.

Nicely atmospheric in places.

Santos, never overly impressed with film work, admits to never having seen any of his handful of films in its entirety through.

Disappointing film in the Casanegra series. The mixture of cowboys, walking corpses, bandits and weak attempts at comedy makes for a boring mismatch. The attempt to weave this story into a mystery falls way short and predictable. In addition, the colors in this print are dull and reminiscent of the B/W films that were "colorized." There are much better films in this series; this one should have stayed buried.
