Netflix Horror Movie “Veronica” Got 100% On Rotten Tomatoes

By Nitish Singh / March 3, 2018

Veronica, a Netflix horror film has got audiences and critics scared stiff. Twitter has flooded with tweets from scared viewers while Rotten Tomatoes currently boasts a 100% rating indicating unanimous critical appraisal for the movie.

The movie has been directed by Paco Plaza, the man behind REC and is set in Madrid in the 90’s. Veronica, who is also the protagonist, has recently lost her boyfriend in a motorcycle accident. So she and her two friends Rosa and Diana hold a seance in an attempt to make contact the man. However, while using an Ouija board to get in touch with the deceased, they mistakenly contact Veronica’s father, who is also dead (of course!).

The story is based on a real-life incident that happened in 1992. A young girl mysteriously died in the hospital right after she was found “playing” with an Ouija board. Until this day, the case is unresolved and remains a mystery. This fact alone sends some chills down the spine. Apart from the story, the film features a haunting background score coupled with freakish sound effects, moving objects, and some horror cliches here and there.

The film was originally screened at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival under the Contemporary World Cinema Section. Slowly it gained hype, becoming popular as the teenage horror-possession movie, and now it has ended up on Netflix, 26 Feb.
