[B-D Review] 'Curandero: Dawn of the Demon' is an A-OK Satanic Cult Flick

Reviewed by Mike Ferraro

Eduardo Rodriguez (the upcoming Fright Night 2) seems to be a dual-personality director who is certainly gifted in some areas of filmmaking, but lacks terribly in many others. Curandero: Dawn of the Demon marks his feature-length debut, which tells the story of Carlos (Carlos Gallardo – El Mariachi), a spiritual healer thrust into an investigation of Castaneda, a local Satanic leader/drug lord.

Carlos’ father was a well-known curandero who helped Magdalena (Gizeht Galatea) overcome a possession of sorts during her childhood. Today, she is a federal agent investigating a man who recently escaped jail as if he disappeared. Since the man who once saved her life has died, Carlos respects his father’s legacy enough to help her. READ MORE
