The Old Ways (2020)

The Old Ways.

Christopher Alender’s “The Old Ways” is a fantastic horror film that’s visceral and compelling.

it takes exorcisms and body horror and creates something that feels simplistic but there’s so much going on and there’s some genuine moments of real scare.

i love how the film progresses and how as we move through it we feel and experience what Cristina (Brigitte Kali Canales) is experiencing, it’s almost like she’s going through these stages of grief and we’re here just witnessing the journey of a tortured soul.

and holy fucken hell what a lovely third act that ties in all the films themes into one nice little messy bow, and you finally get that one of the films scarier messages is that the past will always remain to haunt us.
