'Veronica' is out of the closet



'True' story VERONICA is being called one of the scariest movies ever made .. 

Critics and Netflix fans alike are raving about it, heralding Paco Plaza, it's director, as a genius for creating what is being dubbed 'the scariest horror movie ever'..

MORE: Telling the story of a young girl, who has to raise her younger siblings as her mother is absent, it takes familiar horror tropes and adds a dose of reality..

Young Veronica and her friends take a break from looking after the siblings and mess about with the Ouija board during a solar eclipse - worse time, who knew? Trying to summon the spirit of a dead friend, they accidentally disturb the spirit of her dead father - and then something or rather someone else...

AND there is a blind nun.
 Nothing scarier than that..

WHILE VERONICA is being said to be based on a true story, there is some loose playing with facts to create an intense horror flick: The events all took place in 1992 when a young girl in Vallecas, south Madrid, was briefly hospitalised and died after dabbling with a ouija board.

 The story begins with three friends playing with a Ouija board and ends three days later with Jose Pedro Negri, a police detective who entered a house to find it full of strange smells and noises.

Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..
