Amer ★★★

A bit heavy on sensuality with not enough focus on horror. This movie takes some of its audiovisual style from the works of Dario Argento and Mario Bava, but in a narrative sense resembles the giallo not at all. The best portion of the film is the beginning regarding child Ana, which is thick with suspense and creeping atmosphere. Beyond that, Amer goes from being great to, "Well, this is all right." And an all right film is what it wound up being to the end.
