    Holy Spider


    This is a brutal film about a culture I have very little knowledge about. From a Westerner's perspective it's easy to damn the misogyny and second-class treatment of women, but even easier to blame the religious zealotry of the other.

    This lovechild of Agatha Christie and “Saw” makes for an entertaining Mexican thriller. The gorgeous set decoration evokes the recent trend of high profile whodunnits and the cast is nimble and game.

It gets a little darker than it should but hey murrrdurrr isn’t lighthearted.

If you are going to go THERE, show us because movies are a visual medium. If you tell us not to go through that door, there has to be something nightmarish on the other side, not just a room painted black. With the Blumhouse banner, this probably doesn't qualify as an indie (regardless of…
