Nothing like a board game to make things nice and cozy. But damn you if you dare play it during a solar eclipse! Verónica (Vero for her friends) is having a rough time. Her father is long gone and since her mother works impossible shifts in a bar she has to play mommy to her sisters and bed-wetting little brother. At her strict nun school (it’s the 1980s in a still very religious Spain) she sneaks off with two friends while everybody else is on the roof staring at the sun. Via a Ouija board the girls try and make contact with the deceased and lo and behold, they have a supernatural visitor. But the guest outstays his welcome and during the next few days, he plays a destructive game with his new-found friend Vero…

Paco Plaza needs no introduction because ever since his first effort Second Name (2002) he’s been a BIFFF regular. Verónica, based on a true story, is his follow-up to the legendary REC movies, shot in collaboration with his Catalan blood brother Jaime Balagueró. Once more he serves a masterful cocktail of demonic possession and nail-biting suspense, seasoned with just the right amount of religious hysteria. The impressive young actors are joined by Anna Torrent (Thesis, The Beckoning).
