Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Made and shot in real locations. No sets were built to make this movie.

Boom mic visible: When the men go to chase Jennifer up the stairwell the shadow of the boom mic can be seen briefly. This shouldn't be there since Pablo is only supposed to have a camera.

Ángela: Good evening, this is Angela Vidal speaking. Tonight, as usual, we will share this time...

User Review

The old king of raging fear that makes adrenaline flow

Rating: 10/10

Watched it at Sitges Internation Film Festival.

Now.. Not being a fan of "home-made" cinema I was extremely suspecting about this film. The first 5 minutes really put you down.. I was thinking "Oh no.. Not another amateur experiment please!".. But that's exactly what they are meant for.

After you relax and even prepare for occasional laughter at how bad a film it is the story slowly swirls and sinks in you with pulsating intensity and believe me: You are going to jump all over your seat for the rest of the film.

Please: Do not take kids with you unless they are grown up enough to deal with horror movies or you are up to a few non-sleep nights full of tears and nightmares.

If you love good horror movies you'll love this one.
