The 9 Faces of Fear.

A demonic spirit inside an old & abandoned hotel lurks around waiting to kill. A TV crew and some mediums are inside that hotel doing a report on a mass murder that happened there a long time ago. After facing the demonic spirit several times; they realize they cannot escape the hotel and must face off with the demon who possesses pretty much everyone inside the hotel. The demon will brutally tear off limbs til there's nothing and nobody left.

Christian Gonzalez takes on the horror genre with Las Nueve Caras Del Miedo (aka "The 9 Faces of Fear"). Las Nueve Caras Del Miedo is basically a haunted house type of flick considering it just takes places in the hotel and practically everyone inside gets killed by the one evil being. With it being a horror movie, there is a variety of scenes filled with blood & gore. Several limbs & organs are pulled out alive and even weird vomiting ensues. Very splaterry sounding, huh?

 I also have to mention that the cast is just excellent. They all were so great together! I need another movie to see starring Roberto Ballesteros, Manuel Ojeda, Guillermo Quintanilla and Armando Silvestre together. All these badass & talented dudes in a movie just makes it very interesting. What's also interesting is that the character Roberto Ballesteros plays insists on filming everything that goes on in the hotel. Even when colleagues are bleeding to death and getting possessed. He clearly gives no fucks and feels he'll survive this whole scary ordeal. Isn't that great?

I enjoyed Las Nueve Caras Del Miedo. It is a great 90's Mexican horror movie directed by the great Christian Gonzalez. He once again impresses me. Bless him. 7/10.


I want to thank Christian Gonzalez's wife Patricias Rojas for providing me a copy of Las Nueve Caras Del Miedo. Thank you, Patricia!
