Dubbed as Netflix’s scariest movie ever, Veronica starring Sandra Escacena, Bruna Gonzalex and Claudia Placer, is so scary that audience are not able to watch till the end. Set in 1991 Madrid, Veronica is a 2017 Spanish horror movie that released on Netflix on February 26 last month. Veronica is reportedly based on a true story where a teenage girl finds herself besieged by an evil supernatural force after conducting an Ouija séance at school with her friend. The film has been supported by a Spanish police report that mentions the girl experiencing a paranormal activity.
As reported by an American daily, the police had mentioned how they witnessed doors and armoires opening and the figure of Jesus Christ separating from his crucifix. The report further added the girl’s family had called the police only after a year of her death as the mention of ghosts and demonic possessions only began later. When asked if Veronica is based on a true story, Filmmaker Paco Plaza said in a statement, “In Spain it’s very popular, this story, because it is, as we say in the film, the only time a police officer has said he has witnessed something paranormal, and it’s written in a report with an official police stamp.”
“But I think when we tell something, it becomes a story, even if it’s in the news. You only have to read the different newspapers to know how different reality is, depending on who’s telling it. So I knew we were going to betray the real events. I just wanted to make a whole vision,” he added. The film has been receiving mixed responses on Twitter. While there are some who claim that it is indeed Netflix’s scariest movie ever, there are also some brave-hearts who refute the claim.
