This film was made during senior year at ESCAC (Barcelona’s film school).  Hence the oh-so-many names involved.  You’d think having that may hands in the pot might weigh a movie down.  Mess it all up.  But it doesn’t.

It’s a good revenge tell in the vein of Friday the 13th.  There’s a devastating opening that leaves you wanting someone dead.  And then, those someone’s start to die.  Satisfaction!

There’s A LOT of boob shots.  Delightful innovation.  Good acting.  Realistic.  Pleasurable story.  Stomach-churning effects.  The people weren’t very likable, but that was the point.

We were only really disappointed by the ending and the fact that everyone dies too soon. We are left with only 2 people quite early into the film and some of it ends up being a little boring after that.  So, we’d definitely say that the first half is better than the last half, but we still highly recommend it.

We give it a 71/100.

About TaraRomero

I love 28 Days Later and insist that they are zombies. Infected zombies, but zombies. It's not like they're coming back, are they? No. I also have a strange obsession with Brainscan because I have a stranger obsession with Edward Furlong (mostly pre-drugged up Edward - bless his heart, I've met him and he's lovely and I'll love him till I die). Besides horror I'm addicted to writing about everything I see and think and feel. Also, I read a lot and watch too many game shows. Currently reading Poe and watching Idiotest.
