After a young woman named Maria Cristina is brutally raped & murdered by some sleazy dudes—she comes back from the grave to get revenge on all her killers! She approaches them in person first, proceeds to scratch their faces and then they all get killed in their vehicles. As this all goes on—Maria's mother hears her daughter crying her name and all of Maria's jewelry disappears from her room and then re-appears in the hands of her killers. Obviously some wild supernatural shit is going on and only 2 cops played by Manuel Capetillo & Roberto Flaco Guzman can figure out exactly what the fuck is goin’ on!
La Muerte Acecha (aka "Death Stalks") is a pretty decent horror/thriller flick; but it does however go by very slow in the middle since there is just a bunch of chatting and a weird guy (one of Maria's killers) denying his obvious homosexuality. However, once Maria Cristina re-appears—all hell breaks loose! (sorta). My favorite part of the movie is when right after Maria is murdered—her soul appears to leave her body and then we get glimpses of all her killer's faces swirling around her lifeless body then the scene ends with a snowy TV screen effect. I'm not really sure what that part meant, but it was pretty darn trippy! I also can't forget to mention the last kill in the movie! Once Maria Cristina confronts the last guy—she makes his truck crash down a hill, but of course it’s not an actual truck crashing down and burning—It is actually a toy truck crashing down. Wonderful.
I always have fun watching La Muerte Acecha and maybe you will too. Check it out sometime. Okay?
By the way, this movie is 'based on a true story'. Swell.
