Movie Review: Veronica

I want to start this review by explaining that I watch a lot of horror movies. A lot. I grew up on this genre, thanks to my parents, and my appreciation for it has continued — perhaps even strengthened — thanks to my best friend. Together, we’ve seen it all: supernatural, slasher, paranormal, low-budget, high-budget, cheesy, and everything in between.

So, with that in mind…

Tiffany, the best friend, informed me there was a movie on Netflix that was (supposedly) so scary people weren’t able to make it more than halfway through. My immediate reaction?

Challenge accepted!

The movie in question is called Veronica. It is a Spanish film, directed by Paco Plaza, and is based on a true story.

At the very beginning of Netflix’s description of Veronica, there is mention of a séance. I’m like:

Has any movie involving a séance ever ended well?

Without including spoilers, Veronica unfolds like this: Veronica and two other girls hold a séance at school during an eclipse. Veronica attempts to contact her father, but after a bit of activity, she passes out. Needless to say, she soon begins to suspect that something has followed her away from the experience, and she seeks a solution to the problem.

Here’s the thing — and I really hope you’re still with me…

Veronica is a good movie.

Yes, it’s been done before. And yes, many of these films are based on true stories. But Veronica is crafted in a way that holds the attention. The best friend and I were engrossed for the whole film.

There were creepy moments, some subtler than others. Did we have to turn it off halfway through? Nope.

The only con I see, and this depends on the person, is that the film is subtitled. For me, that wasn’t an issue; however, I know some don’t want to read their movies.

Overall, I would give Veronica a 4.5/5. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
