Movie Reviews

Wanderings spirits
M. Barnard | U.S. | 04/26/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"During the 1950s, producer Alfredo Ripstein lensed a series of films around successful horseback matador Gaston Santos. Generally rurales entries, three in particular (EL GRITO DE LA HUERTE, EL PANTANO DE LAS ANIMAS and LA FLECHA ENVENENNADA, emerged as quirky "PERIOD" mysteries. the LIVING COFFIN (EL GRITO DE LA MUERTE) reteams Gaston with comic relief Pedro de Aguillón in the mystery surrounding an isolated hacienda and a corpse which vanishes from its tomb.

Nicely atmospheric in places.

Santos, never overly impressed with film work, admits to never having seen any of his handful of films in its entirety through."
Time waster

(1 out of 5 stars)

"Disappointing film in the Casanegra series. The mixture of cowboys, walking corpses, bandits and weak attempts at comedy makes for a boring mismatch. The attempt to weave this story into a mystery falls way short and predictable. In addition, the colors in this print are dull and reminiscent of the B/W films that were "colorized." There are much better films in this series; this one should have stayed buried."
