Synopsis:
Alejandra (Ruth Ramos) is a housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel (Jesús Meza) in a small city. Her brother Fabian (Eden Villavicencio) works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of the mysterious Veronica (Simone Bucio). Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems. Something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must make peace or suffer its wrath.

The dark side of subtitles… - The Untamed review by JM

Spoiler Alert
23/05/2021

Apologies from the outset that I’m not actually going to talk about this film, except to say that what I saw of it was intriguing and I definitely wanted to see more…but I had to quit.  Just so you know, I am afflicted with significant hearing loss, which necessitates me using subtitles as and when.  Unfortunately, the quality of the subtitles on UNTAMED was rather poor that it put me off the film.

I had great difficulty reading the player-generated subs against the colour and light of the film.  I got so tired having to pause and rewind to read them that I just gave up.  What’s gone wrong here?  When I started out in DVD, we frequently had either yellow and/or shaded subtitles that made it a damn sight easier, so to speak.  But UNTAMED is the latest of a number of discs I’ve seen where it would appear standards are slipping, with white subs for everything, no consideration paid to what’s on screen, making them harder to read.  Ineptitude, pure and simple.

Come on, video companies, sort it out!
