The Communion Girl: A Haunting Spanish Horror Film
The Communion Girl (Spanish: La niña de la comunión) is a 2022 Spanish horror film directed by Víctor Garcia from a screenplay by Guillem Clua based on an original story by Garcia and Alberto Marini. It stars Carla Campra, Aina Quiñones, Marc Soler, and Carlos Oviedo.
The film follows Sara (Campra), a teenage girl who has recently moved to a new town with her family. She is struggling to fit in with her new classmates, but she finds solace in her friendship with Rebe (Quiñones). One night, after a party, Sara and Rebe are hitchhiking home when they pick up a doll dressed in a communion dress.
The doll ends up at Sara’s house, where she gives it to her younger sister, Judith, as a gift. Judith becomes obsessed with the doll, and soon strange things start happening around the house. Sara and Rebe begin to investigate, and they soon uncover a dark secret about the doll and the town’s past.
The Communion Girl is a well-crafted and suspenseful horror film. Garcia creates a sense of dread and atmosphere that builds throughout the film. The performances are strong, especially from Campra and Quiñones. The film is also visually stunning, with Garcia using the Spanish countryside to create a sense of isolation and claustrophobia.
The film has been praised by critics for its atmosphere, performances, and visuals. It has also been compared to other classic horror films such as The Exorcist and The Shining.
If you are a fan of horror films, then I highly recommend checking out The Communion Girl. It is a well-made and suspenseful film that will stay with you long after you have seen it.
