Standard Mystery Thriller
14 August 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A film crew depart for a remote island in the Atlantic Ocean . During a party the find that Christian the young child has gone missing and that a note is left saying if a ransom isn't paid then the child will die

This is a Spanish early 1970s horror film which in rough translation the title is TOMB OF SILENCE . With a heading like that you might be forgiven for expecting something along the lines of Gothic horror and being Spanish means perhaps a political subtext criticising Franco's fascist military regime . But no , this film contains none of this and is slightly confused not to mention very boring . In effect it's not even graphic enough to be described as a horror just a mystery of who has kidnapped Christian and the answer is a total shock as it appears Valerie is painted too obvious a candidate for the crimes and when the murderer is revealed it's never actually revealed how he was able to kill most of the victims since this would mean he'd have to be able to walk through walls or teleport about locations
