Everyone Will Burn follows a depressed woman who gets an unusual meeting with a young girl. The girl has certain powers which she uses to get revenge on anyone that threatens her and the town doesn’t accept her being around.
This does play out like a witch hunt while using elements of ‘The Omen’ about the girl. It creates terror in a town which sees the town want to clean up a threat they can’t explain. This creates moments of pure horror, as Lucia completes certain tasks, each one more disturbing than the last one.
The performances in the movie are wonderful with Macarena Gomez and Sofia Garcia being the standout of the remarkable cast. When it comes to certain things that happen, it is disturbing but you can’t take your eyes off what is happening.
Final Thoughts – Everyone Will Burn is a disturbing and twisted tale.
