I have not seen this but wonder if Funes the Commissioner is related to or based on Funes the Memorious, who is cursed with remembering everything. Now I'll go see if I can find out more about it.

I thought this movie was fantastic, original, and genuinely scary. Can’t wait to see Rugna’s new one on Shudder.

I think this movie has one of the most incredible setups but it doesn't quite deliver on the promise with an abrupt and slightly unsatisfying ending. I've seen it twice and both times my attention started to wander in the final act.

It's still a strong recommendation from me as a creepy and unsettling experience that feels pretty singular.

I am surprised this doesn't have a sequel or American remake but according to wikipedia both were in the plans but have gone quiet since 2018 which is a real shame.

When Evil Lurks isn't a sequel, but it's set in the same world.
