A stylistically beautiful movie, filmed on the gritty streets of Mexico. It is best categorized as a drama, with some elements of horror mixed in periodically. The acting & production are quite good for a movie of this caliber, and cinematography is excellent. The story is a bit simplistic, but at 78 min., you won't get bored. Not meant to be exceptionally scary, this movie is best enjoyed as a work of art. Definitely worth watching; give this movie a chance and you won't be disappointed.

This is a stylistically beautiful movie, with the gritty streets of a Mexican city (devastated by the Drug War) as its backdrop. It would most accurately be categorized as a drama, with some elements of horror mixed in periodically. The acting & production are both quite good for a movie of this caliber, and the cinematography is excellent. It doesn't quite get 5 stars because the story is a bit simplistic, but with the movie only running 1 hour 18 min., you won't get bored. Not meant to be exceptionally scary, this movie is best enjoyed as a work of art. It is definitely worth watching; give this movie a chance and you won't be disappointed.
