Everybody Knows

Dion: If I am doing all this reading, you are watching horror films. 

¡En serio! The beauty of a Spanish village, a mysterious kidnapping, family tensions about land, and two hours of waiting for the big reveal of who was behind it. The plot twist finale that was unfinished and made absolutely no sense and with no explanation.  All we got was “Sit down…please, sit down” ¡Que mierda!

I see lots of horror films in my future…

From the desk of Dr. Dion Metzger: 

“Everybody knows” was like a road full of twists where you get more excited with each turn about what the destination will be. Unfortunately, that windy Spanish road led us to a dusty shack. Penelope and Javier had me expecting a mansion at the end. What a letdown. What’s up with movies skimping on the climax? I don’t like this trend at all. I was pissed when the credits rolled. What? That’s it? I can’t even recommend it because no one deserves their emotions to be played with like that. Leave it.
