  7. The Horrors Of 2023:

Welcome to The Horrors Of 2023, a series where, leading up to Halloween, I’ll be taking a look at some of the horror(ish) movies that have been released this year (so far)!

And today we’ll be looking the second (and last) non-English language movie: HUESERA: THE BONE WOMAN. A Mexican pregnancy/motherhood horror movie that uses the subgenre to address a bigger societal problem in a spooky and effective way. Now that sounds rather promising…

If you enjoyed this video or my channel in general and would like to support what I do, you could always take a look over at

I wish you always upload new videos more often, really good stuff
Avatar of @marcoaceves144
Great video. As a Mexican man I must tell you, your portrait of this movie in terms of cultural representation to form a “traditional” family specially in small towns and villages mostly for women is awesome. I usually like your videos, but this one, was specially touching to me. Keep up the great work

I only heard about the hype of this movie but I wasn't very attracted to it, however when I watched it I was very surprised, I really really loved it. I didn't know about the reference to the book, now it all makes sense. Thanks for the review, great video!

I'm personally getting a bit tired of horrors with the undertones of 'we live in a society', not because the topics should be dismissed, but because it seems like a rather simple way to give the plot more depth without actually adding any. Though this one at least seems to put in the effort, very good.

Isn't 'Pinkola' the name of a Panther?....=))

I just couldn’t get into this movie. The beginning was interesting, looked like we were going to get a really creepy antagonist, but then it just became more of a drama than a horror film. It was well done, just not for me personally. The message got kind of heavy handed too. I don’t mind a movie making a point, but weave it in subtly, don’t beat me over the head with it like Get Out.

Mexican women need to realize that they can start an OnlyFans to get money to go to college and get a gender studies degree and teach 7th graders about butt plugs instead of becoming trapped in the oppressive patriarchy of motherhood.

As a guy with no desire for marriage and kids i loved this movie.

I loved this movie! The lead had a wonderful sense of yearning that evolved throughout the movie. I like that you pointed out the knuckle cracking, that was a subtle touch that I didn't connect to the line from her mother.

So movie is Boo hoo im gay but I have to have a kid with a supporting husband to fill societal pressures. Seems pretty garbo.

You should really teach a film studies class dude. Thank you for doing the research that I was too lazy to do and explaining the meaning of this movie to me. I liked it, but I wasn’t sure exactly what was going on. The hands on the ankle jump scare really got me haha

I loved this one as well Jeroen. Even the title brings with it frightening images. The husband in the film does a great job of trying to sympathize with the main character. Cheers.--adam

uuuughhhh I've been dying to hear someone talk about this movie!! I loved it, so good.
Avatar of Farside
I only watched this on Shudder because I saw you were reviewing it. It was so bleak and humorless and not even fun. "Baby's suck, embrace lesbianism instead", that's the moral of the story apparently. Review something fun, like Triangle or Sea Fever, or Night of the Hunted.
Avatar of Afrikakorps
So this is basically left-wing extremist propaganda.
Avatar of StabSam
Terrified / Aterrados was a decent movie from 2023. From spain - germand dub wasnt the best though.
Avatar of Panzerkampf
Ok Jeroen. I buy.
I'll give it a watch as soon as i can.

Thanks 4 the hands up.
