Plot: on April Fool’s Day, a group of friends end up at an abandoned hotel after getting lost – they party and start getting picked off


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 suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
