Brazil is one of those countries
that don't have a solid history
or big tradition when it comes
to producing horror movies,
but when the occasional horror title does
does pop up from there;
it's almost always worth checking out!
Until now, this country's horror
identity was pretty much solely
revolving on the notorious
cult icon José Mojica Marins –
better known perhaps under his
alter ego Coffin Joe – but now
two brand new horror prodigies
emerged seemingly out of nowhere! Directors'
duo Rodrigo Gasparini and Dante
Vescio previously just made one
little short movie that was meant
to be included in
"The ABC's of Death" but didn't
for some reason, but their
"The Fostering" immediately proves
that they are two visionary young
film makers with a talented eye
for morbidity and sheer suspense!
"The Fostering" is truly one of
the most unsettling, atmospheric
and nail-bitingly tense fright
tales I've seen in the festival
circuit in many years!
I watched the film at the Brussels'
Fantastic Film Festival and,
even though it was well after midnight
already and I had seen 3 other
films before this one,
"The Fostering" kept me wide
awake and concentrated even long
after it was finished!
This is a throwback to true
& genuine horror; a combination
of grim local folklore tales together
with a non-stop ominous atmosphere
and shocking imagery/decors.
