Genre Drama, Fantasy, Horror

Time seems to stand still in a small village on the Galician coast. Three women arrive in the small town, and the villagers they meet talk about ghosts, about witches, about monsters—and about Rubio, a sailor who recently disappeared into the sea. A Lovecraftian film based on very real horrors.

We hate to say it, but we can't find anywhere to view this film.

What are critics saying?


Slant Magazine by Jake Cole

Lois Patiño’s Red Moon Tide is a work of unmistakable horror, one predicated on such ineffable dread that the impact of climate change becomes a sort of Lovecraftian force.


The Hollywood Reporter by Neil Young

A challenging work which punctuates taxing stretches of austere stasis with interludes of sublime beauty — including a ravishingly spectacular underwater finale — it uses a slight fable of a story as framework for some extravagant sensory stimulations.


The Guardian by Steve Rose

The trance-like pacing and mystical meditation might frustrate viewers looking for an easy watch, but local film-maker Lois Patiño is clearly operating at the fine-art end of the cinema scale. He applies his distinctive mode to a story that’s both ravishing and unsettling.
