We finished the review of the premieres of the month with Movistar +, which as always takes the rest with a good and varied film session. In fact, this month brings us such interesting things as Becky, a kind of ‘revenge movie’ in which an imaginative teenager faces dangerous kidnappers who have gone after her family, hunting them in the forest instead of the other way around .
We also have Color Out of Space, which has become one of the best adaptations of the Lovecraft universe, thanks to fleeing from the typical studio film and making a delusional and colorful work of science fiction with drops of horror thriller at times in which Nicolas Cage proves once again that he has talent, and that he is the most unclassifiable actor of his generation – and almost of all.
Another interesting premiere is that of the second season of the Spanish Hierro, with Candela Peña once again at the helm of the cast in a new case for her character of Judge Candela, a strong and independent female lead, well written and better acted.
