Three youngsters, Sandra (Paula Pier), Mario (Alfonso Romeo) and
Eduardo (Jorge Gallardo) want to achieve internet fame with a viral video
about something scary - and stumble upon a legend of 6 women convicted for
witchcraft some 400 years ago, but only 5 were actually executed, one,
Joana Toy (Clara Gayo), had disappeared to God (or the Devil?) knows
where. Of course, none of the kids believe in witchcraft, but what makes
the story scary still is that Joana is a descendant of the judge who has
convicted the witches in the first place. Plus, all the locations of
interest for the story are nearby, so why not try to milk it? Incredibly,
the youngsters are chased away from the first location by some masked
weirdos who might have to do with the story (or so a graffiti probably
left by them suggests) ... so now our youngsters are all the more
determined to check out the main location, the very home of Joana - which
includes a hike (with overnight camping) through the woods where nobody
has gone for years. But soon enough they notice they are not alone, soon
too, their map and their cellphones are gone, and when they witness the
ranger of the area being killed by a masked weirdo who probably belongs to
above gang, they - well, decide to abort their mission. But what can they
do in the middle of the woods, having lost their way?
time The Last Witch was made, the found footage approach was by no
means new anymore but rather over-used - and yet, this movie gets
something out of it, as it doesn't forget effective storytelling, creating
suspense and placing its shocks quite right over its shaky-camera
approach, features a very likeable and relatable trio in the leads, and
really gets a feeling of intimacy out of the point-of-view camerawork
weirdly enough only rarely achieved in found footage flicks.
watchable, to say the least!
