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.
In 1950s Spain, an agoraphobic woman becomes unhinged and imprisons an injured man in her apartment.
Cast: Macarena Gomez, Nadia de Santiago, Luis Tosar, Hugo Silva
A deep dive into trauma-land with an incredible storyline and phenomenal acting especially by Macarena Gomez, truly a performance I will remember for years to come. Everything about this movie hits the mark for me. Well played Spain!
Beautiful story, very much hits the nail on the head illustrating the fear of the cycle of abuse, gaslighting, and of course the requisite mild gore
Great movie; some parts reminded me of the movie Misery!
The acting was SO GOOD! I'll have to agree with other viewers by saying that the storyline was pretty predictable, but the ending, though? Really didn't expect it! My first spanish horror movie and it certainly won't be my last.
Absolutely fantastic, great characters
