Reminiscent of J-Horror!!
Movie God | Hollywood | 10/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This movie is easily reminiscent of the J-Horror movies that have been taking the horror movie world by storm. The only difference is that this film is from Mexico and not Asia. "KM 31" or Kilometer 31 is a scary, moody, chilling, and well done movie. To say the least it topped box-office records in Mexico. As I watched it, it reminded me of Ju-on and The Ring. However, without giving too much, the movie takes a fresh spin at an old Mexican Folklore tale about a woman and her lost children.
Although it is obvious that the director was inspired by such movies as Dark Water and the previously mentioned Ju-On and The Ring, "KM 31" manages to stay fresh and new especially because it tackles such a huge and popular Latin myth.
What is also great and impressive about this movie is the high production value. Not only is "KM 31" well shot, but it continues the amazing and stylish visuals that have been coming out of Mexico with directors such as Guillermo Del Toro (The Devil's Backbone) and Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter III).
This movie is destined to become a Mexican horror classic and beyond alongside such movies as "Hasta El Viento Tiene Miedo", "The Devil's Backbone", "Ju-on" and "The Ring".
After the tragic death of their mother when they were children, twin sisters Agata and Catalina Hameran developed a special skill, a way of communicating without speaking, a psychic link between them.
Soon after a mysterious car accident involving a little boy on Kilometer 31, Agata falls into a coma. Catalina, thanks to their link, feels the pain and tragedy that her sister is going through. Following a series of supernatural events, Catalina realizes that their link is stronger than ever and that her sister Agata is screaming for help and trying to warn her about a sinister presence.
Catalina is now determined at all cost to find out what really happened to her sister in order to help her wake from her coma. Nuño, Catalina's long time friend, and Omar, Agata's boyfriend, agree to help her. But they all soon find out that not only is Agata in a coma, but that there are otherworldly and supernatural elements present. Both sisters soon find themselves trapped between reality and the curse of an old and ancient Mexican legend!"
