I had no idea what this movie was about, and I had never heard about it prior to stumbling upon it in Netflix whilst browsing the horror catalogue. I read the short synopsis for the movie and decided to give it a go.
"Espectro" (aka "Demon Inside") turned out to be a rather slow paced movie that was somewhat of a struggle for me to get through. And truth be told, then I did drift away and dozed off a couple of times throughout the course of the movie. It was a combination of the slow pace, the fact that very little of any interest happened throughout the entire movie, and also because the characters in the movie were one-dimensional and characters that very generic and rather pointless.
I am familiar with Paz Vega by name, but I don't recall seeing any of her previous movies. So I didn't really know what to expect from her acting.
It should be said that the cast in the movie were doing good enough jobs with their given roles and characters, but they had so very little to work with in terms of script and storyline.
"Espectro" wasn't a particularly scary or disturbing movie as it was more of a boring snoozefest. And lots of the things that did happen throughout the movie didn't really make much sense or have much of any interest as it unfolded on the screen.
I did manage to sit through the entire movie, although it was quite an ordeal. And from what I saw and managed to not sleep through, then I was not particularly impressed in any way. There was nothing scary about the movie, and the storyline actually didn't make much sense. "Espectro" is definitely not a movie that I will return to Watch a second time.
