"Matar a Todos" (2007) is a story set in Uruguay in 1993. It revolves around an investigation by a law court lawyer, "Julia" (Roxana Blanco). She's looking into the possibility that a chemist named Eugenio Barrios is being secretly sheltered in Uruguay by right-wing political powers. (Barrios was a real-world figure who developed sarin gas for the Chilean government, a military dictatorship, of Augusto Pinochet.) Her investigation meets with resistance from her boss, her father who is a retired general, and her brother who is an officer in the armed forces. She is offered information by an Argentinian journalist. She is encouraged by her former lover.

And while most people I know prefer An American Werewolf in London, I've always had a much softer spot for Joe Dante's The Howling. Both films are filled with a surprising amount of humour, classic horror references and some truly remarkable and groundbreaking makeup effects. I find Dante's film to be far more atmospheric, with beautiful cinematography and lighting, accompanied by an effectively creepy score from Pino Donaggio. The cast is terrific (particularly Dee Wallace), the script is smart, film buffs will love the cameos, and although it's often quite campy the film still has a few great scares. The Howling has aged surprisingly well over the years and Rob Bottin's effects work remains some of the best in the genre. I doubt they'll ever make a better werewolf movie.

Russell G (de) wrote: Sandra Bullock looks great and she does a fine job, but this movie is extremely slow even by romance movie standards. It is painfully predictable and takes forever for what you know is coming to unfold. Predictability is not a bad thing, as long as the road to know finish is interesting. This, however, is a snooze. Bullock gives it her best, but her character is not likable. Who wants to see the little miss popular homecoming queen come home, land on her feet; much less become the toast of the town again? Yuck! Spare me, please. Not even her supposedly cute little girl is palatable. Other than Bullock, the soundtrack is the only other nice thing I can point out about the movie. It is lifeless and bland, do yourself a favor and avoid this one at all costs.

Chris E (fr) wrote: Fred Williamson is one cool motherfucker, and the soundtrack and editing of this flick are fantastic. Which is why it's a real shame it all peters out after the first half hour or so. It starts promisingly enough, but it gets a bit boring and just ambles along until the inevitable climax. A massive letdown.
