Extremely odd Spanish thriller
18 June 2005 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Donald Pleasance stars as a man who is searching for a hidden treasure. After he gets out of prison for murdering the man who hid it, he heads to the house where he knows it is and confronts the man's mentally unstable daughter who knows the location. In the process he uses her extended family to help in his plight. This is one odd film. It actually reminded me a lot of the Italian film SEWER RATS, which came out the same year. The performances here are all good, especially from Pleasance and Michael Dunn, a midget who had appeared with Pleasance in the THE FREAKMAKER the previous year. Carmen Sevilla, star of THE GLASS CEILING, provides the hotness as an unsatisfied wife who comes onto Pleasance (she must be really feeling unsatisfied!). The end revelation is okay, but you can see it coming from a mile off thanks to Gonzalo Suárez's direction. If you are going to reveal the mystery location of the item currently being sought, don't show it 7,000 times during the course of the film. We get it!
