A well paced psychological horror,
This review is from: Devoured [DVD] (DVD)
The blurb and cover may lead you to expect a regular slasher movie and the title may well throw a curved ball or two your way but it's far more subtle than either.
A waitress is working in a restaurant to send money home to her son who needs an operation, she is harassed and abused by the owners and various customers but she finds friendship with one stranger and confides in him that she believes the place may be haunted.
It's a deliberately slow moving movie, but picks up speed towards the end as the truth is revealed, the opening scene may give you a clue as to the ending.
It's a well paced story of a descent into madness and not at all what I was expecting from the cover but for once I was not disappointed. There's some pretty good acting performances especially by Marta Milans as the waitress Lourdes.
Just don't expect a terror tour de force.
No extras apart from a trailer.
