This Spanish-Language Film On Netflix Is So Terrifying, I Had To Try Watching It 3 Times Before I Finished It

Courtesy of Netflix

It took me three days to watch “Veronica” — the new Netflix Spanish-language horror film. It’s not because I was preoccupied, but because I was too scared to watch it in its entirety. In fact, after attempting to watch it twice in the evening, I ultimately had to finish it during the day. It’s that freakin’ scary.

“Veronica” isn’t your average movie about a girl playing the Ouija board.

Ouija board storylines are quite frankly tiresome and not very interesting anymore. [Spoiler alerts ahead (sort of)!] But in this film, it centers around a teen girl trying to speak to her dead father.

Veronica has more on her plate than most teenage girls. She’s basically in charge of taking care of her siblings because their mother works the night shift at a bar. So clearly, she has a lot to deal with.

The story takes place in Spain in the early ’90s  and the fashion is low key on point.

Watching “Veronica” made me so nostalgic for the ’90s. Her style is so typical of most teenage girls, especially if they’re into Spanish rock. She wears Converse and the same t-shirt of her favorite band, which brings me to my next point.

The music and images of Héroes del Silencio is everywhere in this film.

For Spanish rock lovers, this part is especially cool. Héroes del Silencio is Veronica’s favorite band so she listens to them all the time, especially when she’s trying escape visions and thoughts of “it.”

I won’t disclose what “it” is because you really have to watch the film to find out.

Whatever Veronica called over to the other side by playing the Ouija is indescribable. But it’s unlike anything I have ever seen on film before.

The film itself is so good, specifically Sandra Escacena who plays Veronica.

Both Sandra and the director Paco Plaza have been nominated for several film awards.

However, the main reason you must watch “Veronica” is because it’s all real.

The film starts off by saying that the story is based on a case report by the lead detective. But once you see the entire movie, you can’t believe that actually happened to a girl. But it did!

According to Newsweek: “The case takes its name from the Madrid neighborhood where a young woman, Estefania Gutierrez Lazaro rather than Veronica, reportedly performed a seance at school. A nun broke her Ouija board, ending or interrupting the ritual. She later experienced months of seizures and hallucinations, particularly of shadows and presences surrounding her.”

I won’t tell you how it ends, but know this: the detective and others witnessed what happened to the real Veronica.

Here’s what others on social media are saying about “Veronica”

SAME!

You think you can survive watching it the whole way through, but you’re wrong.

There’s a reason for that.

Google “real story of Veronica”….Yikes!

How could this really happen?

Hope you make it through the whole movie without stopping it.

It won’t be easy, but good luck to you.

Salma Hayek loves Mexico. There’s no denying her love for her native country despite living and traveling all over the world. But now we’re getting a sense of what Hayek really loves about Mexico, specifically Mexico City.

In an article for Vanity Fair, Salma Hayek is dishing on her favorite things about Mexico City.

Hayek, who’s married to French business mogul François-Henri Pinault, divides her time between France and the U.S. where she’s a naturalized citizen. However, that doesn’t mean that her heart has forgotten her roots.

Here’s some highlights of her favorite things according to her article in Vanity Fair.

1. Teotihuacan Pyramids

Hayek says that these historic pyramids, which date back 200 CE, is a can’t miss destination. The Pyramid of the Sun, which is included in the compound, is the third largest pyramid in the world behind two the Great Pyramid of Cholula and the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt.

2. Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul

The Frida Kahlo Museum, which happens to be Frida’s house where she was born and lived most of her life, is obviously on the list of things to do. Hayek listed this experience as one of her local favorites.

A room here will cost you at least $200 a night, but Hayek says that this hotel is the best hotel in the city.

Not bad if you want to live it up like Hayek.
