Critic Reviews for Luciferina
I wanted to love Luciferina because there was a real sense of craftsmanship to the proceedings yet the story arcs seemed to suffer at the expense of other elements. Oh well.
It conveys a surprisingly empowering and progressive message related to sex, and the way it is viewed by teenagers. (...) Let the rest of the trilogy come!
Luciferina is a slow burn with a couple of lovely horror moments that only really stutters when it offers up unnecessary jump scares and an extraneous villain in a movie that's already about Satan.
Calzada's vividly atmospheric film is itself a space in which reality and dreams overlap, in which formal narrative structures break down as our heroine strives to gain control of her identity and destiny.
Luciferina is a horror film that confounds polarities, taking conventional oppositions - Christian vs pagan, angel vs devil, good vs evil - and merging them into a complex, potent unity.
