DIFF 2014: Witching and Bitching





I'm not going to lie, I was so nervous walking into this film.

Not only was this the first film that I had watched by myself in the theater, I was surrounded by two giggling teenage girls who wouldn't stop flirting with men even when the film was rolling.

For this one, I had read the description, and it only made matters worse.

How in the hell am I going to like a film about people dressed up as certain characters, one of them being Jesus, robbing a bank with this guys 6 or 7 year old son.

How?!

I loved it.

I loved it so much.

It was basically a Spanish Cabin in the Woods on Speed.

Except this wasn't directed by Joss Whedon, but by someone crazier than Whedon.

Directed by Alex de la Iglesia. This film, arguably, has the best opening scene that I have ever witnessed.

Trust me, I am so shocked that I actually loved this film. It was so much fun to watch, and there was never a point where I was bored. I was always there and involved in the film.

I don't think I had laughed that hard for a film in a long time. It was an insane roller coaster ride. The dialogue was witty, and I had literally left the theater saying, "what the hell was that?"

It was phenomenal.

Maybe I'm just a sucker for bloodbaths at the opening of movies, involving beloved characters from my past, but I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Don't get me wrong, there were some things that I did not like about it.

I hated how I thought the movie was over five different times, and it should have been over those 5 different times. The whole ending sequence was a bit out of reach for me.

The movie itself is already insane, but it just got tooooooooo strange for me to even focus.

And I love strange films.

Despite the outlandish ending, this film has solid A-Level acting.

Especially Hugo Silva. Silvia's comedic timing is beautiful, and his face is muy bueno.

MUY BUENO.

I would say I was a little off set by all the boobs in the opening of the film, but I watched Wolf of Wall Street so I was prepared.

Even though the film should have ended thirty minutes sooner, it was a wild ride that I would PAY to see over and over again.

The best part about it was that even though I had to read subtitles all throughout the movie, it didn't feel bothersome like some other films would. I actually thought I knew Spanish after I watched the film.

I don't.

But it's good to feel that way.

I'm definitely buying this film when I have the chance.

Check it out when you have your own chance.

But if Cabin in the Woods on Speed in Spanish doesn't sound fun to you, go play a game of scrabble.

That's more your pace.

Enjoy your orgy blood baths, you witches.
