Más negro que la noche

Blacker Than the Night. MX 1974. D: Carlos Enrique Taboada. Print from Cineteca Nacional (México). 96 min. E-subtitles in Finnish by Anita Mikkonen, operated by Kukka Ranta. Viewed at Cinema Orion, Helsinki (Mexican Horror), 19 Oct 2010. - I watched the beginning of this Mexican Gothic horror film in colour. A rich old lady dies, Ofelia inherits her and her formidable house, and the conditions of the will stipulate that good care must be taken of the cat Becker. Then the cat dies... The director laces the maybe sympathetically clumsy horror atmosphere with soft-core voyeurism.
