Excellent movie! I'm starting to become a very big fan of Spanish horror movies. Can't wait 'til La Habitación del Niño gets added to Shudder! 😍
Very good claustrophobic thriller from Spain that develops quite the nasty streak as it moves along. Kinda reminiscent of Misery in a couple of aspects, but it's far darker and moodier than that. The ending in particular is a nice gut punch that I didn't expect. If you dig thrillers with some strong horror elements, give this one a whirl.
Great movie! Did not expect that ending.
Great acting and direction.
