DIR Fernando de Fuentes | Mexico | 1934 | 85 MIN
One of the first Mexican horror films, this pioneering work by filmmaker Fernando de Fuentes is
a wonderfully macabre gothic masterpiece. A married couple and their best friend seek shelter
from the night at an ancient monastery. A mad, lascivious abbot tells them that the cloister is
haunted by the spirit of a monk who sold his soul in exchange for his best friend’s wife, a legend
eerily close to their own lusty dynamic. Through the night the supernatural gains sway until
dawn discloses new revelations. New digital restoration courtesy UCLA Film & Television
Archive and The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project, with support from the George Lucas
Family Foundation. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
 
Una de las primeras películas de terror mexicanas, este trabajo pionero del cineasta Fernando
de Fuentes es una obra maestra gótica maravillosamente macabra. Una pareja casada y su
mejor amigo buscan refugio de la noche en un antiguo monasterio. Un abad loco y lascivo les
dice que el claustro está poseído por el espíritu de un monje que vendió su alma a cambio de la
esposa de su mejor amigo, una leyenda inquietantemente cercana a su propia dinámica
lujuriosa. Durante la noche, lo sobrenatural gana influencia hasta que el amanecer destapa
nuevas revelaciones. Nueva restauración digital cortesía de UCLA Film & Television
