Not much too say except.........
4 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

People who enjoy this film because of it's nudity and sex scenes should really consider if they are film goers or not. I don't mind watching a sex scene here or there but the movie is classified as horror! There were a couple of terrifying moments but they didn't last, then, the sex scene once again.

This is not film making at it's best. Spain has produced some "GREAT" films in the past but this one does not come anywhere near good.

You want to sell your films to people who enjoy watching nude women flaunting their bodies, then go and direct porn. For me, a good film needs a storyline and good acting and not have to resort in a film to have sex scenes and naked woman all through the film.
