Sex and a Good Story or a Good Story with sex?
Leave your inhibitions at the door because this one is a sexual smorgasbord. There is something for just about everyone. I was only bothered by one gratuitous scene where the big eyed beauty is getting shock treatment in a bra and panties with her daddy watching. Yuck.

The story is intriguing and will suck you in from the beginning. A boarding school that specializes in dealing with out of control students and or those who are just unwanted. The setting is a modernized Monastic Castle that comes with it's own Benedictine Monks other wise known as God's Soldiers. Dark age ritualism is at work with the prerequisite of sacrifice. A very attractive cast with a variety of character's also lends to keep it interesting.

European series with impressive dubbing but I found it to be more enjoyable just going with the Spanish and reading the subtitles.

Cliff Hanger
Overall the suspense and drama created by the storyline were engrossing, uncovering the mysterious boarding school and the connection to the Raven Cult. What I found disturbing was the ending in which the antagonists win out. The headmistress murdering Brother Elias and the manipulation of the students, though uncovered, did not get resolved. I suppose that is an American expectation and perhaps the disastrous ending in this first (I assume there will be more.) season with Rita hanging from the tree with her eyes gouged out was to set up the next season. But, the suspense as I said was intriguing though unsatisfactory if indeed that was the end of it all. Mara, the head mistress is definitely an unlikeable and sinister character along with her muscle found in the physical education teacher.

2.0 out of 5 stars
Two stars rather than zero because of the location and overhead shots of pine trees.
Laura Bellosa created a wonderful teen masterpiece with Internado: Laguna Negra. It was addictive, mysterious, suspenseful and although it had its share of love triangles and so on, it never was gross and dark like this.

There is too much gratuitous nudity, underwear, nipples and there are full-on naked three ways in a teenage school bathroom. On top of that, the show is really dark, there are kids murdered and left hanging from a tree with their eyes gouged out.
It's too dark for today's teens during COVID.

I say this as a Spanish teacher who ADORES the original and have always fought to show it to students.
The original had an innocence and sense of mystery/wonder that isn't present in this show at all. Maybe it was the sweetness between Ana de Armas's Carolina and Marcos and her speech about all the besos she wasn't going to be able to give, or maybe it's the sweet mocoso little Paula, and the Little Red Riding Hood motif, but it was the perfect combination of teen angst and sensuality but with INNOCENCE.
Whereas the original show had Héctor telling the rich, elite kids that they needed to learn to be good people, this show is full of darkness for now apparent reason and continuous punishment.

If you've seen 13 Going on 30, here's the difference: Laguna Negra is the magazine pitch Jennifer Garner tried to pitch -- happy, joyful, carefree and innocent. Las Cumbres is the dark, heroin-chic pitch her frienemy gave.

Today's Covid teens do NOT need this. Their lives are dark enough.

Meh!
I managed to get half way through episode 4 then realized I was so bored I wasn't even going to skip to the last episode. Overall it was workmanlike. None of the performances were good nor bad; they were so average. The plot seemed to have been paced so that the series could run for a certain number of weeks rather than for dramatic effect. Finally, for a school that is trying to present itself as prison-like, this place made my high school look like a maximum security facility. Students wandered all over, inside and out; the feared watchdog seemed to take a lot of time off, possibly visiting friends to avoid being in any more of this movie.

Awesome!
I'm so excited this show is back! I remember what a trip the 2007 original one was. Hope this show keeps going! One thing though: if you want to watch it in the original Spanish instead of the English dub, head over to subtitles and audio/video settings.

Not as appealing as the original.
I've watched the original El Internado Laguna Negra. This reboot has a good premise and promise. The issues I take with this iteration are mainly the Ines character and her storyline. This character and the plot around her drag this show down considerably. The character has an excessively blank personality even for an amnesiac. I remember the original El Internado fondly, the group in that show were all fun to watch. Only a couple of the kids are interesting in this show. I will definitely watch a second season and hope the sophomore year improves in plotting as well as the acting and characterization of Ines.

Trailer was scarier but it's worth it
It's a Spanish show please don't expect the American style. :) The characters are likeable and you can easily go with the flow (I mean the events). For quality purposes, please leave the original Spanish audio on and use English subtitles. The English audio kills the joy. I almost turned it off, it sucks. Sometimes when the events went back in time it was confusing at first. The 8th episode left so many questions open, literally I got mad and googled if season 2 would ever come. They say probably in 2022 due to Covid :( I can't wait.
I highly recommend this show if you like mystery.

It's ok -
Cool story line, but it really, really drags it out. The cliff hanger is really predictable, but they had better round off some of the mysteries surrounding it or I'll die of tense boredom. Really could have done without the sex - it totally wasn't even a necessary part of the story.
