Although the most media premiere of the year is HBO this month with Zack Snyder’s Justice League, of course Movistar + comes with very interesting things for the third month of the year. March starts in 2 days, and the VOD platform will bring us as always a lot of cinema, with a little of everything.
We have for example the cute and funny and at the same time gore and bloody comedy of Little Monsters, in which a preschool teacher must guide her students to survive all of a zombie horde in a jewel for fans of the genre. There is also La Caza, a black and provocative acid critic (and satire) social covered in a modern version of the classic El Malvado Zaroff, in which a group of strangers begins to be chased and hunted in a macabre game.
There is also La Voz Humana, Almodovar’s first film in English in the form of a 30-minute short with a monologue and impeccable performance by Tilda Swinton. And Host, the surprise of the horror genre 2020 in the form of a tape that lasts less than 1 hour and is counted as a meeting by the Zoom app, in a group video call in which some friends invoke a spirit.
And for the children Scooby, the prequel to how Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, the mythical characters of Hanna-Barbera, met. In addition, on March 14 we will have the live ceremony of the 2021 Grammy Awards, with a maximum presence of nominees this year.

Vicious Fun Unpublished cinema
Tuesday 9 at 10:00 p.m. at Movistar CineDoc & Roll (dial 31). Presented at the 2020 Sitges Festival with great public success, “Vicious Fun” is, as the title indicates, as fun as it is rampant and perverse.

Unpublished cinema. Wednesday 10 at 10:00 p.m. at Movistar CineDoc & Roll (dial 31).
