Lo mejor son los primeros 40 minutos, con un toque cómico bastante acertado. Y lo peor el resto, con un tramo final que hecha a perder todo lo bueno del principio. La esperaba mejor pero tampoco es un fracaso.… Full Review »

When it comes to talk about witches and craft, I recall one movie “The Craft”. As for me, it is one of the most striking films about witches. But lately I watched another one.
"The Witches of Zugarramurdi" (also known as “Witching&****”) is a Spanish comedy horror film, made in 2013 by Alex de la Iglesia. It stars Hugo Silva, Mario Casas and Carmen Maura.
It opens by a robbery which was pondered by two street artists Jose and Tony. The robbery does not go as well as they thought it would. Nevertheless, they manage to steal a bag of golden rings and successfully run from police. Moreover, a taxi driver, who was their hostage and drove them away from the crime scene, becomes their confederate.
Thus, the beginning of the film is full of action, chases and sparkling dialogues. The singularity of the situation is that Jose has brought his son Sergio and he becomes involved into the crime and all consequences of it. Due to Sergio, his mother, who is followed by police, manages to figure out their whereabouts.
The company ends up in the Navarrese town in Zugarramurdi, which is known as witch's town since Medieval times. They meet cannibalistic witches face to face. It goes without saying, that their only aim is to run away from that place, but it is not so easy.
The plot is evolving rapidly and including a lot of supernatural and terrifying action. Some of scenes were absolutely horrific. But I really like the movie though.
Also, to my opinion, the plot of the film has similarities with “From dusk till dawn”. Bad guys are running from police and end up in a strange place facing supernatural creatures.
Anyway, "The Witches of Zugarramurdi" is a good film.
It won the most awards at the 28th Goya Awards with eight wins out of ten nominations, so it is one of the greatest Spanish movies in new century.… Full Review »
