Satan gives a woman three wishes in this version of the classic tale, "The Monkey's Paw." A young couple start messing with a Ouiji board that is introduced by a friend, then get involved in a spiritualist cult. Financ...展开ial troubles loom and the results of how they deal with them is at the crux of the movie... More Sci-Fi-ish/Twilight zonish than "horror". A GREAT B&W film!
Espiritismo. Dir. Benito Alazraki. A middle class dinner party takes a turn for the worse when Louis and Mary Howard take part in a seance. Their host, medium Elvira, warns the couple that April 8th will mark the beginning of a tragic period in their lives, and goes on to mention an encounter with inhuman creatures wielding extraordinary powers. The date in question happens to be their 20th wedding anniversary and at the end of an evening of celebration, their son, Rodolpho, asks for a loan of $4,000 to finance a new business venture. Sure enough, the first tragedy occurs soon after, eventually prompting the initially skeptical Mary to attempt to hold her family together by doing business with the ultimate loan shark.... The Devil! Excellent Mexican variation of a classic horror story. English language version. Black and White (1961/1965)
