One of the most impactful movies I have seen. A twist of horror and magic that will keep you engaged and thinking about this movie after it ends.

Fantastic film. Really hits home, Mexico is not easy to grow up in. And fortunetley here the kids have a happy ending. I wish ghosts were real so the monsters among us would be afraid of them.

Best film I’ve seen on here. The cinematography is breathtakingly beautiful while the story is heartbreaking. Loved it

Not a traditional horror movie more like the horrors of real life so not gonna appeal to the average ‘shudderer’ but if you appreciate a haunting foreign tale & have an open mind it’s ultimately a satisfying watch-I say give it a go-there’s def much much worse out there👌
