Stylish stupidity
4 March 2004 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

As expected from the transplanted Spaniard Larraz, this contribution to the slasher genre is achingly stylish, beautifully lit, and deliberately paced. Unfortunately, it is saddled with one of the stupidest scripts in memory (which is saying a lot for this genre). The character motivations are absurd, the Freudian underpinnings offensive, the red herrings insulting, and the denouement is so obvious that you'll want to throw your remote control through the screen to smarten up the protagonist. The women are gorgeous and often naked, but you also have to bear witness to an intense nude love scene between a 20-year old man and a 50-something woman. This one is strictly for Larraz completists and fledgling DPs.
