Wonderfully atmospheric, but the film itself falls short.
13 October 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

This film has a great creepy atmosphere that really sets the mood, but the movie falls really short. In general it's just another Mexican horror film that doesn't stand out. The look of the film could have made for a horror masterpiece, but the filmmakers didn't try hard enough. For Mexican horror fans only.
