The film is in Spanish with English subtitles so if that’s something you don’t like then move along now, but you’ll be missing out on something great!
Belén Rueda who plays Laura and Roger Príncep who plays Simón are amazing in their roles. You really get attached to them.
The tension is held all the way through, slowly building, the soundtrack helping enhance the creepy atmosphere, until you’re gnawing on your fingernails as you wait for things to inevitably go wrong. And, wow, does it go wrong!
The ending is a shocker and very original. You will not be expecting it. You should definitely watch this and I’d be interested to hear what people thought.
To sum up, original, tense, great actors
Was it worth the watch? Yes
Would I re-watch? Yes
