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.

Plot was pretty strong and the acting was great but the gore wasn't there like Shudder hyped it up to be, and its not really a horror movie.

Well worth a watch, not a horror in the true sense, but brilliant acting and a good storyline.

Great movie. Very haunting, tragic, and suspenseful although some twists were predictable. But very worth watching, fantastic performances by the 2 lead actresses

Beautiful, haunting, and uncomfortable. Acting was excellent and while I did find the twists a little predictable this didn’t take away any from the film
