This one kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time: top-notch acting, starting with the beautiful Belén Rueda, striking shots, heart attack material, especially for the feeble ones. The sugary ending is not what I'd have chosen, but, other than that, It's definitely worth a look.
Incredibly disappointing after a promising start. Strangely plays with a lot of the same themes as the similarly lacklustre The Secret in their Eyes and Broken Embraces while also relying far far far too heavily on generic horror tropes (breasty girl in a wet t-shirt, et al). The ending is also sentimental rubbish. Makes What Lies Beneath look like a pulse-pounding masterpiece.
i didnt lilke it at all ... the story is bearable till some point then most of the things happen unjustified and seems like if things happen because the writer had a blank or somethin while writting the story ...it could have been better or not that bad if it had been shorter .
Stylishly-directed horror that milks the vulnerability of voluptuous blind women to teeth-gnawing effect. And many of the truly suspenseful moments are brilliantly conceived, playing with the skewed perceptions of the hapless female protagonist. Again, as in The Orphanage, Belen Rueda delivers, proving she's the belle of Spanish horror.
