“Astaroth”, directed by Larissa Anzoategui, is a visually stunning tribute to Euro-Horror that tells the story of Angelique, a woman who wanders a desolate city plagued by darkness and terrifying hallucinations. Through her journey, she discovers a group of Satanic worshippers and a vampiress who are trapped in a never-ending cycle of passion and death. The film is inspired by the works of Lord Byron and Álvares de Azevedo, and the director’s focus on expressionist aesthetics is evident throughout.

The film’s all-female cast and crew bring Anzoategui’s haunting and enigmatic vision to life with exceptional skill. The cinematography is well done, and the lighting is used to great effect, creating a palpable sense of dread that permeates the film. “Astaroth” is a highly creative and visually arresting movie that will appeal to fans of the horror genre, particularly those with an appreciation for the Euro-Horror style. Overall, “Astaroth” is an impressive effort from Anzoategui and a must-see for horror aficionados.
