Veneno Para Las Hadas

Veneno Para Las Hadas (Poison for the Fairies)

It’s weird to try to say anything impartial about this movie, because I grew up with it in more ways than one (Ana Patricia Rojo and I are the same age and a lot of my generation grew up watching this chick chew up the scenery deliciously in every telenovela in the ’90’s). Luckily, I don’t have to.  This movie is a true horror classic.  The super slow pace and old cartoon type classical music  soundtrack put you in this weird Sunday afternoon matinee type vibe.  Ah look, it’s a sweet little girl Heidi type film!

Oooh but it’s SO not.  If you’re patient, this movie will blow you away.  Taboada was a true genius, and the theme, the way it was shot, THAT ENDING… Needless to say, this is one of my all time favorite horror movies.  I love the definite little girl perspective it gives.  I almost wonder if it was an inspiration for Heavenly Creatures.  It would make a great double feature with it.  They are both perfect odes to a certain kind of dark little girl we have all either been or admired at some point 🖤

I'm a lifelong writer and reader who finally got up the nerve to start my first novel. Wish me luck! In the meantime, I like to share my views on all things cheesy, creepy, deep, and/or ridiculous. Like me.
