Netflix’s latest horror film Veronica has been scaring viewers stiff since it debuted on the streaming service less than a week ago – and with good reason.
The Spanish film tells the story of a young girl and her siblings, who decided to try and summon their dead father’s spirit using a Ouija board.
Things soon take a dark turn though when Veronica passes out during the ritual. It gets seriously messed up from there.
Directed by Paco Plaza, whose previous credits include the foreign language found footage classic [REC], Veronica has already been heralded by fans and critics alike.
The film has earned a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, while viewers have been quick to herald the film as one of the scariest of all time.
What makes the movie that bit more disturbing/intriguing is that fact that it appears to have been based on a true story.
Back in the early 90s, police in Madrid were called out to deal with a case involving a girl who mysteriously died after dabbling in the occult.
2018 is shaping up to be a great year for horror movie fans with fellow scare flick Hereditary due out later this year and already dubbed among the most traumatic films of its kind.
Foreign language horror films are very much in fashion though and offering up some pretty unique and suitably messed up movie scenarios.
Last year French cinephiles were treated to Raw – a cannibal horror comedy that had some viewers reaching for the sick bags. That also comes highly recommended.
