There is only one thing more chilling than a good scary story: one that is real. Paco Plaza, creator of the highly successful REC horror saga, will petrify us from fear with VERONICA. Produced by Apaches (A Monster Calls), the film is based on the only case in history that the Spanish police classified as unexplained and supernatural. To this day, it remains unresolved.

SYNOPSIS

 

Veronica has taken care of her little brother and sister since the death of their father. One day during a total eclipse of the sun, Veronica and two friends decide to make a Ouija board in order to invoke her father’s spirit. At the very peak of the eclipse, the glass shatters. Veronica enters a kind of trance and passes out, frightening her friends. Veronica recovers and goes home. But there, she starts to pick up on slight changes: objects that move, breathing in the dark... She thinks she has brought her father back to the world of the living. The next day at school, Veronica is exhausted. She hardly slept. Her friends avoid her, afraid. Back at home, strange things keep happening. Veronica starts a ritual to free herself from the spirits, helped by her siblings. With their invocation, terrifying shadows appear, as do sounds and smells. Then a violent attack against the children occurs. Veronica responds courageously, unaware of the horrific outcome that awaits her...
