    El Signo de la Muerte

    ★★★

    Signing death. 6/10.

    After having finished my notes for Luc Besson’s Leon (1994-also reviewed) I decided to look at the Mexican Horror titles I’ve got waiting to be played. Having seen a number of his excellent 50’s and 60’s movies,I was thrilled to find a Horror by Chano Urueta from the 30’s! This led to me signing death in.

    The professional cleaner. 9/10.

    Deciding to do a “Auteurs in ‘94” themed viewing week,I started looking for titles from well known film makers from the year. Despite having seen a number of his works,I’ve somehow always missed catching Luc Besson’s most famous creation, which led to me at last meeting Leon.

    Talking to my dad and a friend,I was surprised to hear both of them give me the same response when I mentioned the title to them,with each of them saying the…

    ★★★

    The Mark of the Malthus. 6/10.

    Getting to the last few Mexican Horror titles fellow IMDber melvelvit-1 had kindly sent me,I noticed that this one had the least positive reviews. Having pushed it right to the back due to this,it finally got to time where I examined the mark of death.
