Synopsis of & # 39; El cuento & # 39;
The story It tells the story of Dani and Lucas, two brothers who live in front of an old woman who seems to be watching them from her window day and night. A mother who is not having fun and a corridor that seems to take us to a place that we should not enter. (THE ROCKY RUSSIAN)
The story was featured in International Fantasy Film Festival Montreal, where it caught the attention of Michael and Shawn Rasmussen (screenwriters of Hell under water) That's when Lucas Paulino and Ángel Torres started the cinematographic golden dream of any film director, because Sam Raimi himself (evil Dead, Drag me to hell) will produce the feature film based on this fantastic short film.
Good news for all lovers of this genre, though, After seeing the short, the long-term expectations are enormous. And it doesn't seem that the development of this work will be easy. Although with the collaboration of the team behind it (which means working with Ghost House Pictures) and the talent of these beginning filmmakers (who had a small part), certainly they will not disappoint and succeed. And so we all hope.
With The story We return to the origins of fear and narration as an engine of fear and shock. However, Paulino and Torres' short film promises more than that. The fantasy of the short film becomes terrifying, remakes the conventional and gives us an anguished energy, that necessary discomfort of the genre.
As the action progresses, we immerse ourselves in ancient history, in the worn-out tale full of legends that soothes children before going to bed. Even if The story Don't even pretend it. In its history, fantasy becomes reality, becoming uncertain and unexpected. The storyAs a genre, it is the climatic point and gives the horror note of the story itself.
With the dialogues, you start to laugh, maybe because of your nerves, maybe because you're just as scared as the characters. The uncertainty of the narration becomes, with silence, perfect. And squeaky sounds and squeaky music are also the reason why we want to be part of this little story. Although it is recurrent and we have heard it in other horror films, we don't care. Because it is the music that, as a viewer, you get excited about and your heart stops.
We're in a house, it's dinner time. A mother feeds her two children for dinner. She is on the verge of collapse, it seems that motherhood is not going very well. But children seem to be good boys. Through the kitchen window, one of them alerts the presence of a witch in the opposite building: "She is always there looking at us," she says. The mother, a little Annoyed, she replies, "And how do you know it's not you, who's always here looking at her?" Maybe a little right, it depends on the point of view.
And we won't count anymore; it's just the beginning of this brilliant short film. Development is a short story, perfect for telling in the dark. The end of The story, on the other hand, is a sample of all the possibilities of history in general and scary tales in particular.
The story It is a brutal, macabre and disturbing short film within the genre. Your blood runs cold and your skin prickles when you see it. That's what terror has to be, isn't it? And how difficult it is to get a good horror story. The story investigates its origins, speaking from a narrative perspective and the horror genre itself, and returns a result that is very worthwhile, as well as the hope that they can continue creating stories like this, which inspire us and make us have fun as children.
