Horror fans have been left on the edge of their seats over the ‘haunted’ horror film Huesera: The Bone Woman.
Some viewers said they “couldn’t breathe” while watching the Mexican film, which follows a pregnant woman who finds herself threatened by occult forces.
The film tells the story of Valeria (Natalia Solián) who has long dreamed of becoming a mother.
However, her dream quickly turns into a nightmare after she is cursed by a supernatural entity.
The trailer sees Valeria saying she’s “glad” to be pregnant before an elderly woman tells her: “Just kidding, you’re not a kid.”
She is later seen popping her knuckles, with someone telling her: “Valeria, stop popping your fingers. They will all end up crooked.’
Several disturbing images follow with a female voice saying to Valeria: “What is happening to you is completely normal.
“When you become a mother, you feel like you’ve been split in two. And wait for working time. You literally feel like your bones are breaking.’
Viewers joined in and praised the chilling film, with one person claiming: “Huesera: The Bone Woman (2022) A film I absolutely love for what it says and how it expresses it, I can’t watch it again, but holy f *** at times I felt like I couldn’t breathe… I feel like my hair has turned gray just watching this.’
Another said: “A must watch if you like psychological thrillers and horror films. Amazing how they mix Mexican culture and myths into a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat.’
Another viewer wrote: “I saw this movie by accident and I must say it was not lost! Bone fractures now have a new meaning.”
A fourth fan added: “I feel awkward and uncomfortable. I feel the pain and I was scared… isn’t that what horror movies do?”
A fifth said: “Now that’s what I’m talking about! What an amazing movie, kept me on edge from start to finish!’
Huesera: The Bone Woman was released in US theaters in February and has a 97% approval rating on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
Along with the protagonist Natalia, the film also features Alfonso Dosal as her husband Raul and Aída López as her mother.
The horror film was directed and co-written by Michelle Garza Cervera in her feature film debut.
