Would horror lovers enjoy this film?
This film does have quite an eerie vibe to it and if you watch it on your own it may make you feel a bit uneasy, but it is definitely the type of film where if you watch it in a group, you’ll get that one person going “I’m not even scared at this”. The film itself is a kind of creepy, but it doesn’t fully get where you want it to go. Not a bad watch, but nothing that will stick in our minds. If you enjoy watching horror films regularly, then The Influence (La Influencia) is the type of horror film that you can put on whilst your eating your dinner, or as something interesting to watch while working from home. But unfortunately, it would not make it close to the Eff Your Review’s top 10 horror films list.
