In 1950s Spain, an agoraphobic woman spends her days inside the apartment she shares with her sister, who she’s raised since their mother died. But when a handsome neighbor knocks on her door seeking help after a fall, Montse dresses his wounds and sets about ensuring he’ll never leave her apartment either. Macarena Gómez received a Goya nomination for her chilling lead performance in this gory grand dame guignol which pays homage to WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? and MISERY. Produced by Spanish horror master Alex de la Iglesia (THE BABY’S ROOM). A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. Contains violence and gore.

I thought it will be the typical religious fanatic cliche film but I actually enjoyed the plot very much. I wish SHUDDER had a "International" category since there are some interesting stories out there in other countries.
Wow I can’t believe I slept on this one for
This movie was more disturbing and unsettling than it was scary. Very tense and uncomfortable from beginning to end. I agree with other reviewers that said it is like a Spanish Misery. I’m giving it 5 skulls because it was a good movie but not because it was scary.
