Some of that is honestly owed to the fact that I really haven't seen all that many of any great interest to me. If it doesn't appeal to me, then I'm hesitant to share it in this space as I feel it likely won't be all that inviting to the rest of you. Such is the case of trying to maintain my esteemed position on the cutting edge of genre projects, so I do hope that you folks appreciate me kinda/sorta keeping up a bit of a wall around you, me, and the rest of mankind. It's a dirty job ... but somebody's gotta do it!
The trailer for Huesera: The Bone Woman was offered to me last week via a distributor relationship. I didn't get around to watching it until yesterday (I've had a lot on my plate, as of late), and I nearly (nearly!) shut it off about halfway through it as it just came across as far too d-o-m-e-s-t-i-c than authentically scary. But then ... the sound effects kicked in ... and the truly Horror-based aesthetics ramped into gear ... and while I'm not convinced this one might be the dream come true as its marketing staffers promise it still does have a little something something in its tank, I suspect.
IMDB.com shows that this Horror/Fantasy was written (in part) and directed by Michelle Garza Cervera. For some reason, it's a name I recognize, but I can't figure out where and/or why. I've even looked at her published online resume, and sadly nothing looks all that familiar. Perhaps it's a name I've encountered in passing somewheres. While Huesera doesn't look to be her theatrical debut project, its preview certainly has some expressed similarities with other films that have come to pass ... so this one might be worth the price of admission as they say.
As for on-screen talent?
Again, the reliable IMDB.com lists Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Batalla, Mercedes Hernández, Natalia Solián, and Sonia Couoh as ones to watch.
Here's the plot summary as provided:
"Valeria has long dreamed about becoming a mother. After learning that she's pregnant, she expects to feel happy, yet something's off."
Trailer is below. You folks know what to do about that.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
