Venus takes forever, to go nowhere interesting, let alone terrifying. This Spanish production adapts Lovecraft, in the worst way possible. It takes a modern, predictable underworld/underclass, plot that centres around a down on her luck dancer and her extended family, who become embroiled in the illicit world of drugs. Its depressing stuff, that takes up the majority of this less than inspiring film, which has a equally unimpressive supernatural tie in, with a sinister building they inhabit. Acting is alright but so much else simply doesn't work, it hardly matters. In summary, let down by a bland, done to death contemporary story line, with a vague super natural component, that comes too late and offer's too little.
Venus (2022) is a great modern horror with cosmic adaptation that goes around multiple subgenre that called genre-bending with stylist production from Jaume Balagueró itself. It's actually a fresh horror feature but yea the script kinda mess a lil bit, but doesn't make us disappointed cause obviously Ester Expósito's performance bought it. If you like a cosmic horror that has so much graphic elements, you definitely should try Venus!
