Storyline

Journalist, Gabriel Martinez (Rodrigo Sepulvada) is obsessed with discovering the truth about the brutal murder of his friend and colleague Anibal Neira (Gilberto Villarroel). Neira had been researching an article about the American artist Richard Upton Pickman (Renzo Oviedo) who is renowned for his disturbing paintings incorporating the monsters of Chilean folklore. Martinez speaks to a Professor of Art (Luis Alarcon)who tells him that Pickman is in Santiago, so the journalist goes to visit him - but finds more than he bargained for as he discovers the truth about what has inspired Pickman to paint such aberrant creatures in his work.

general overview
5 July 2002 | by tura-1See all my reviews

I saw Chilean Gothinc at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival last year and thought it was a particularly well made adaptation of one of the authors best known stories. The director helped maintain the feel Lovecraft's story (about an artist famous for his horrific paintings) by never really allowing us to see those paintings clearly. As the camera pans past these macabre works of art we glimpse vague shapes which our own minds flesh out into whatever monstrosities we choose to see.

This same technique is used with great success throughout the movie. Even the climactic scene of horror is played just a bit off camera, allowing the audience the freedom to imagine the worst. My only complaint is that the subtitles left much to be desired and viewers may want to read the original story first in order to make the adaptation easier to follow.
