Movie Info

Beto (Tenoch Huerta) and Diana (Ariana Guerra), a young Mexican-American couple expecting their first child, move to a small town in 1970's California where Beto has been offered a job managing a farm. Isolated from the community and plagued by confusing nightmares, Diana explores the rundown company ranch where they reside, finding a grisly talisman and a box containing the belongings of the previous residents. Her discoveries will lead her to a truth much stranger and more terrifying than she could have possibly imagined.

Madres has some good ideas, but it fails to see the structural forest for the sumptuously photographed trees.

Calling a movie like Madres by-the-numbers would be a compliment, and an overstatement, because that would indicate that the makers were even mildly successful.

Ryan Zaragoza's Welcome to the Blumhouse horror offering might teach you something even if it doesn't scare you.

What it lacks in sting it makes up for with an original script (by Marcella Ochoa and Mario Miscione) and a ferociously pregnant protagonist who would make the "Fargo" character Marge Gunderson proud.

Madres never loses a strong underpinning of social conscience that seeps into director Ryan Zaragoza's considered shots.

Even though there are supernatural elements in the story, it's based on real-life traumatic incidents involving motherhood ... The final 20 minutes of the movie make up for the aspects of the story that tend to get repetitive.
