  1. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film The Similars

    Incluida en la famosa plataforma, ésta es seguramente una buena excusa para tener Netflix en casa. Uno lamentaba no haber podido acudir a ver una cinta de terror ambientada en la madrugada del 2 de octubre de 1968, creyendo desperdiciada la oportunidad de presenciar algo interesante, pero afortunadamente no es el caso: un bodrio cómo éste no merece ni siquiera el tiempo empleado en formarse en la taquilla de un cine.

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Similars

    It would have been a good Twilight Zone episode, but not a movie.

  3. Eddie Rinctoya's rating of the film The Similars

  4. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Similars

    A lot of directorial confidence and prowess here and some wonderfully bonkers early scenes. It doesn't hold up for a feature length film however and would have been far stronger as a short. 2.5 stars

  5. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Similars

    Body Snatchers in Tlatelolco 1968. See also: the Twilight Zone episode "It's a Good Life" and Ionesco's Rhinoceros.

  6. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Similars

    I hadn't seen anything so demented since Nacho Vigalondo's Timecrimes. This is Twilight Zone meets Chris Cunningham's Windowicker with a dash of Ionesco and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the 1978 remake, that is). But the homages and references (including Ezban's follow up, El Incidente) are just smoke and mirrors for the film's highly political message. Excellent.

  7. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film The Similars

    Points to Ezban for creating something rare in contemporary mexican cinema. His aesthetics channeling B-series, vintage sci-fi are a delight. But its uneven shift of tone throughout makes it a mixed bad.
