The usual Paco del Toro awfulness.
9 August 2017 | by MonsterVision99See all my reviews

"La Santa Muerte" it's a 2007 Paco del Toro film. I have seen a few other Paco del Toro films, and now I think he may be one my favorite bad movie directors in recent years, his movies are incredibly awful, stupid and preachy, they usually are pretty funny. La Santa Muerte its no exception, I quite enjoyed this movie for all the wrong reasons.

The movie begins with the obligatory Paco del Toro montage, I guess its supposed to introduce the characters, but it just comes off as really cheesy and quite disjointed, its a horrible way to introduce your characters and their backstory. For most of the film, we follow two stories, but halfway through the movie one of the stories end, and I guess they wanted the movie to be longer, so they added ANOTHER STORY!! I am serious, this movie is hilariously incompetent, its kind of sad, because it has a few intense and realistic moments, I noticed that Paco del Toro isn't necessarily a bad director, I guess he just needs better scripts (and better editing).

The ending is awful by the way.

Overall, its horrible, but somewhat funny, only recommended for fans of bad movies.
