COMPULSION Film Review October 27, 2020

The Spanish thriller/horror film “Compulsion” starts with the premise that a girlfriend suspects her boyfriend is cheating on her. What she doesn’t realize is that he is involved in something much darker than that.

The plot is flimsy at best but the performances keep the story moving along. There really isn’t any direction with the plot once it reveals what the boyfriend is up to. The finale really is just the build up between who will survive and who won’t. There is no explanation for the boyfriend's behavior so the audience is just left feeling unsatisfied.

The performance of Susana Abaitua stands out as her character goes from hurt to survival throughout the film. She carries every scene she is in. 

The ending is cliché and has little impact on improving the film.  

“Compulsion” could have been a much better film than the final product.
