This Spanish-language horror film follows the relationship of a married couple who have recently lost their first child. The mysterious woman who threatens the family's psychological stability resurfaces and forces the couple to take a short break in the woods to heal. But when Oscar and Sara arrive, the situation is much worse than they could have imagined, and the tension between them becomes even worse. In order to deal with this new threat, Sara and Oscar decide to move to a remote cabin in the forest.
The film, which was made by Carlos Beltran with his wife, is a well-made thriller with a complex storyline. It follows the lives of a young couple who are having a difficult time getting back together, despite the fact that the man who is trying to get them back together is blackmailing them. But when the extortionist is killed, the woman is the prime suspect, and she realizes that her husband is living a double life.
In addition to Andres Londono and Paula Castano, the film is based on two parallel axes: one about the married couple's fascination with Tarumama, and the other about a marriage that is on the verge of breaking up. Despite its ambiguous origins, the movie has some interesting moments. For instance, Castano's layered performance makes the audience feel a strong sense of fear after witnessing a horrific incident in the woods.
Although the film is an adaptation of the popular Spanish horror film La Llorona, the plot revolves around the disintegration of a family on a vacation in the woods. The family has an idyllic life until the tragedy strikes. The terrifying events that follow corrode the atmosphere in the family, and Sara and Oscar must stay together in order to survive the nightmare. Though it's a good horror film, there are some aspects of the story that feel forced.
The movie was initially slated to premiere in Colombia on July 29. But due to the COVID-19 outbreak, filming for the movie was delayed. But the director was able to complete the shooting of the film. After a brief hiatus, the film will finally come out on DVD on July 29, 2020. Andres Beltran's latest horror film 'Tarumama' is about the breakup of a family after a death. The director's father had committed suicide and has been busy writing several other projects.
Despite the fact that the film has a romantic plot, it is a tragic tale of love and loss. While she is a notoriously ugly old woman, her beauty and charm are what make the movie so captivating. Andres Londono's role as the wailing father, for example, is an unlikely choice for the lead role. The wailing outside the mountain compound increases the escalation of the family's tensions.
