This movie snuck up on me in a welcome way. Without giving too much away, the film focuses on strange occurrences after the Bacurau town matriarch’s death. It starts as more of a slow burn examination of a fictional small Brazilian town, meeting many unique and charming characters along the way, with their political issues and internal conflicts. As the movie goes on, it feels an insane 70’s exploitation film snuck its way in the plot. The movie uses genre flair to address colonization and racial tension and impressive practical gore effects, and brutal kills. It’s a unique film that stays in your mind long after it’s done.
