Alegría is possessed by the devil but exorcism isn’t much help, and neither is her daddy who’d much rather hit the bar. This wild and black grotesque is at once a parody of polished animated movies and proof that the choice to forgo sophisticated cinematic illusions can still lead to a beguiling film.


"She’s so ugly!” – say Alegría’s parents of their possessed daughter. And actually everything in the film is ugly. To its benefit. Created with an imagination wilder than a whirling dervish, the film combines elements of traditional horror with a punk approach to moviemaking. The result is an unrestrained work that seems bent on dragging operatic grandeur and superficial beauty in the dirt. Here, a two-bit story of exorcism, in which the starring roles are played by puppets resembling the product of abortive art-class slapdashery, takes on darkly humorous, even cruel, in places unexpectedly sad, contours.
