Yawn Yawn

Zzzzzz... BOO!! Zzzzzz... BOO!!

That's me watching this movie. A exorcism horror just added to Netflix.

Man this movie was slow and boring. It's like the only way to grasp audience's attention was to throw in a jump-scare fest. One thing I can give this movie was that it had good visuals and designs. Some scenes were pretty gory and intense.

However, this still did not help with the slow and lacking story. The main character got possessed by a demon, and we only knew bare minimal surface stuff about the demon. There were also many tropes used in this type of movie.

Overall, a boring horror despite some great visuals. 4/10.

This is a treat for fans of "Evil Dead" meets the Mexican vibe of "From Dusk Till Dawn"

"The Old Ways" was released in 2020 and contains a lot of classic ingredients from horror movies that came out during the 1980s. And that is what I like because the movie was created with a nice blend of everything that puts you on the edge of your seat. We have that classic exorcism rituals, an ideal timing of jumpscares and a bit of a confusing story. Let me get into that latter aspect.

What I found refreshing is that the story keeps you guessing until the very end. In the beginning I was quite sure she was posessed. And then I wondered if it is not the other way around or she was held captive for a different reason. "The Old Ways" is kind of a "Hostel" for exorcism and has gory and explicit scenes. But the director never let's you off the hook and there is always potential for a plot-twist or a sidestory. Actually I couldn't rate this movie a full 10, even if I wished to, but I find that a tiny bit of more background story or a more elaborate way of storytelling would have been nice. The flashbacks are timed ideally but do not make up a lack of depth.

I appreciated this film had strong and convincing female leads. Starting with Brigitte Kali Canales as "Cristina", the captive journalist. Her performance is top-notch and compelling. She manages to switch from cute to devilish in no time and still retains a fascinating aura. Her facial expressions of fear, pain and the whole palette of her emotions are extremly compelling to watch. Andrea Cortés as Miranda starts off neutral as the shy cousin. But what she pulls off later is quite surprising. Julia Vera as Luz is one of the most adorable old bruja I have seen.

Make sure to watch this film in original English, since the voice acting is perfect, simply great and adds tension. The score is tense and the visuals are great for a movie like this. The cuts and the art of evoking emotions through images in this film are surely underrated. Also there is not too much CGI and that handmade stuff is what makes good horror movies. If you cherish good old classic films then you will know what I mean. This is a treat for fans of "Evil Dead" meets the Mexican vibe of "From Dusk Till Dawn".

One of the worst horror movie ever seen

Typical Hollywood stereotypical straight up garbage. Wasted an hour and a half of my life. I'm a horror fan and this movie horrified me for all the wrong reasons. "I'm a mf Bruja !" like really, did she just say that.
