Follow Up: The True Story Behind The Netflix Horror Movie “Veronica”


We recently posted about the new horror movie on Netflix called “Veronica” and how much buzz it is getting recently.  What we didn’t know when we originally wrote the article is that the movie is actually based on a real case.

The real case is known as the Vallecas case, which involves the strange and sudden death of Estefanía Gutiérrez Lázaro.  According to Buzzfeed, Newsweek has taken a deeper look into how much “Veronica” was based on the actual case.

According to Newsweek, Estefanía and her friends were found playing on a Ouija board by a teacher who abruptly put an end to their game.  It is said that after the game, Estefanía began complaining to her parents about hallucinating, convulsing and even hearing strange noises.  Her parents proceeded by taking her to several doctors but no one could figure out what was wrong. 

In August 1991, she was admitted to Gregorio Marañón Hospital and later died.  The official medical report ruled the cause of death a “sudden and suspicious death.”

After Estefanía’s sudden death, her parents claimed to experience paranormal activity for over a year.  They claimed to see giant shadows in their home and doors opening and closing on their own.
