A small town. A boy with supernatural powers. A policewoman who wants to solve a series of crimes. Some dead people who have been incinerated. And the bizarre, truly bizarre apparition of the virgin Mary in each of these cases. All of these elements make up the puzzle of The Second Death, a supernatural thriller that mixes the most classical of police stories with a somewhat apocryphal glance at horror with religious undertones. A rural landscape and a taste for genre that knows no conventionalisms round off this feast of frights, intrigue and psychological feints.
