Why being moral... If we can be anonymous.
Dark, vicious and horrifying film from Argentina regarding a reporter's investigation into the urban legend of Snuff films, it easily transcends its micro budget with a punch to the face.

A luckless Polish cleaner ends up captive with a decidedly strange family in this lean, stark, and at times blackly comic horror.
