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.
