Plot: Being dubbed “the scariest horror film ever” by Netflix audience is the worst thing that could have happened to this Spanish chiller. Sure the hype generated by the easily scared people garnered this foreign language film a broader viewership but it also invited higher expectations which Veronica is unfortunately unable to live up to. The story of Veronica follows a teenage girl who decides to conduct a seance with her friends through an Ouija board during a total solar eclipse which goes horribly wrong. Sensing a strange presence around her ever since, she begins to lose her grasp on reality and tries to protect her family from whatever evil she inadvertently unleashed.
Directed by Paco Plaza (co-director of REC), Veronica is genuinely effective when it gets all the elements right and delivers a good dose of frights & thrills. The premise is set up real quick and things soon escalate from that point onwards. Plaza surely knows how to ratchet up the tension as he invests more in the setting & ambience to instil a disquieting chill to the images. Also notable is its minimal reliance on jump scares as Veronica derives its screams from its sinister atmosphere that reeks with a sense of foreboding. Its cleverly executed camera & nerve-jangling sound design is intertwined in a neat fashion and though the plot travels a well-worn path and packs many genre tropes, it manages to keep the interest alive for the most part.
Editing makes sure the narrative doesn’t sway away far enough from the main plot and its 105 minutes runtime is swiftly paced yet the final act fails to wrap things up on a wholly satisfying note. Performances are impressive despite the presence of children, for they together provide a sense of an actual family here, but its Sandra Escacena in the eponymous role who leaves the most lasting impression. On an overall scale, Veronica benefits from Paco Plaza’s no-nonsense direction and makes excellent use of horror elements to finish as a welcome example of its genre but as far as its scare factor goes, there are far better & more frightening examples out there. Those buying the hype beforehand are probably in for a disappointment. There’s a lot many things that Veronica gets right but the one thing going against it is something it can’t do anything about……..Enjoy more Latest Hollywood Horror Movies Collection at downloadlatestmovies.
