Religious horror grew up to our days mainly through films about demonic possession with all kinds of exorcisms. La segunda muerte decides to turn the page of this subgenre with a heretic vision that opens a new phase in vernacular horror cinema. The film’s hell is a small lost town where a kid magician arrives. Since he’s capable of seeing people’s past with only touching their picture, agent Alba Aiello uses him to solve a series of crimes where each victim shows up incinerated in a strange way. The reprobate detail is that an apparition of the Virgin Mary may be responsible for each sinister episode. With an adjusted storytelling that is able to connect different elements like a supernatural thriller and a police story, La segunda muerte is one of those genre films where every feature has the necessary amount of theatricality but it’s not limited to creating an impact.
