All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hierro (2009)

Starring: Elana Anaya
Director: Gabe Ibáñez

On a vacation to an island in the Mediterranean, a mother's son goes missing. Months later, and still grieving, she asked to return to identify a child's body found in the sea. She arrives believing her son is still alive and abducted by a person living on the island.

My Take:
A rather predictable story is saved by the strong performance by Elana Anaya portraying the grieving mother coping with the disappearance of her only child and losing her grip on reality. Also the movie is beautiful shot which combined with the fantastic editing give it a very cool fragmented and dreamy feel.

Rating: In the middle
