The opportunity for an original and definitely compelling new take on an old subject is pretty much wasted. The characters were flat and tired, and there's only so many times I can watch the same few men have the same unoriginal, predictable "what shall we do now" argument in one film before I begin to lose interest. To its credit, the acting was decent to good and I liked the ending; actually the plot would have made a good short film for sure, but as much as I usually love Spanish horror (and psychological thrillers of any kind) I would seriously, seriously recommend skipping this.
An original storyline with great acting which helped build suspense. There was never a moment where I wasn't thinking "what's going to happen next?!". Certainly a thriller rather than a horror, but nevertheless a good movie which is worth the watch. Only disappointment was the ending which was a bit predictable.
This film was really good in the sense that it has a super 'out-there' plot. It was disturbing, creepy, different - i enjoyed it!
what did I just watch
You can`t go wrong with Spanish movies, was a good watch.
