A former schoolteacher emerges from a lake, horribly battered and dazed, looking almost like an apparition. So begins LA OSCURIDAD (Canadian Premiere), a timely work from Mexico’s Jorge Sistos Moreno, making its Canadian debut here after chilling souls at Morbido and Cannes’ Semaine de la Critique. It’s a soulful, creepy experience that’s positively humid with atmosphere, existing in a haunted netherworld between magic realism and horror.
