The Apostle (O Apóstolo)(El apóstol)
A convict who escaped from jail takes off to a remote village to recover an old loot that was hidden years earlier. But what he finds there involves him in a fate much worse than the one he had been doomed to. Sinister old people, odd disappearances, spirits, a strange parish priest and even the archpriest of Santiago de Compostela will all meet in a tale full of terror, humour, and fantasy. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie isn't exactly scary, and it has a tendency to meander. But the crumbling, ornate sets are an atmospheric marvel, and a cutout-animated collage sequence unveiling Xanaz's damned origins is Terry Gilliam-level..."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"The manner in which Cortizo engages with centuries-old lore makes the narrative trajectory anything but predictable."
‑ Michael Nordine, L.A. Weekly
