Penny Palabras (2018) Online

Penny is searching for ways to banish the Straw Man and protect her family. While seeking solutions, she meets The Librarian, who always seems to know something more than she lets on. The Librarian introduces Penny to The Pawn Broker, a trader of supernatural and rare artifacts, and the Pawn Broker lends Penny the Spectacular Revolver, which Penny plans on using to generate a ghost accomplice that can help her fight against the Straw Man. Penny's actions come to the attention of a Tiger Devil with a mysterious interest in how things will play out. The Tiger Devil offers to help Penny, but she knows that the assistance of such a powerful creature comes with a cost and that devils are not to be trusted.

Yeah 2 reviews before me, jamesedehartcomposer and anahelt, both rated this movie to a ten, They must have been paid to do so I think. Both have reviewed only ONE movie guess which one! I am wondering how they pay you, is it by the amount of stars (1 star 1 $), please explain how it works. Do you do this for a living? This movie is a 2-3 stars, nothing new, nothing we haven't seen before. The acting is poor, bad casting I think, the movie is boring and dull. It was a struggle to watch this movie from beginning to the finish.


The 10 * reviews must be fake.

Anyway. When I saw this film's synopsis I thought it looked interesting, and I always like to see low budget films get a good run.

Unfortunately, this was nowhere near the film I was expecting, and lack of budget is not the reason.

OK, so I am not expecting super Hollywood performances from the cast, and it was obvious that some of the supporting cast were inexperienced, and that is fine and to be expected. Some of the performances of the main cast were good too.

Whoever colour graded this film needs some serious training and experience. Colour grading is more than making the screen a colour - it is about the subtle use of colour and effects to being the viewer into the story and invoke mood and emotion - not a raging headache. I can see why whoever did this might think monochromatic blue was the way to go, but it just doesn't work the way it is applied.

Teh editing was far too loose. Some shots lingered for too long, some shots we just not cut together very well generally, and many others were just pointless in the context of the story. It also made the actress playing the main character unprofessional and a bit dim -which she is not.

The 'special effects' are what they are - not all that special and it may have worked much better if the film had less of them and more thought had gone into producing physical effects rather than relying on computer generated ones that looked false.

In the end this could have been a good film, even for the budget. But lack of attention to detail and poor technical skills ruined it.


Great indie film about a girl who knows a thing or two about magic and is haunted by the supernatural while trying to navigate drama with friends and family. Strong female characters, an array of villains that keep you guessing who the real antagonist is and shot in an artistic black and white style. Some of the cinematography really blew me away.

Not worth your time! Awefull acting, incomprehensible storyline, no effects worth mentioning! In short; terrible


It is always refreshing to see a movie made by people who are passionate about what they do. Whether it be comedy, or graphic novel they hit the mark and it shows.


This independent film is not for special effects addicted action-feed addicted horror fans who are accustomed to be entertained by the gore of people being ripped apart by two semi tractor trailers by the spine. It is for lovers of film, literary types, who actually read the book first. Although I was skeptical of the lead actress's talent after seeing the journal entries that led up to production, I thought she pulled it off ok. Furthermore, I was impressed by the other actors -- Mom, the Librarian (still my fave), skinny lovestruck kid, partying teenagers (if this was bad acting, couldn't tell cause that's how drunk people SOUND), and especially the Dad who is a wonderful actor. Black and white works and also mimics the graphic novel. Film angles well done, lot of good hard-edged imagery. Story sped up and sucks you in as it goes along. Psychological elements. Soundtrack well-developed, soft but striking, although thought some of the conversation scenes didn't need background music. Can't wait to see what happens next.
