Unfortunately it's not a very good move. The fact that the son of director Luis Bunuel is somewhat influenced by Bunuel Sr is not more than understandably, but it's without the surrealistic magic that made some of Bunuel's Sr movies so very good. It reminded me of something like Poltergeist part 4 or something like that. Although this movie is somewhat older than the original Poltergeist-movie. Horror-fans will be disappointed for it's lack of real tension or gore-FX. Art-house-lovers will not like it because it has no good story-line or because they'll see that there's no great direction, acting or camera-works. 3 out of 10 points (very boring movie)
