SIMPLY SHOCKING
20 December 2003 | by (Argetnina) – See all my reviews

One of the 30 movies i saw that are a truly horror mastepiece. this movie -at least- in Argentina is very difficult to see or rent. It was film in video and i think when the whole "video" mania was just starting. This is an excellent example of making a great film with very little money. I think it is an example for every filmaker.
