Excellent horror film!
29 April 2001 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

This Spanish horror film is one of the best I´ve ever seen!... and I´ve seen quite a few.

In a small village in New Orleans, a maniac starts killing women with an axe... There´s a lot of blood in this film but it´s not disturbing since the violent or dramatic scenes are very well-balanced, at least to me.

This extraordinary film reminds me the great "Pieces" directed by Juan Piquer... so if you like "Pieces" you´ve got to watch this one!. The killer in this film wears a black raincoat, black gloves and a white mask which is quite terrifying...

As in so many other mystery-suspense-horror films, you won´t find out who is the killer until the end, and there are several suspects.

Curiously, two of the actresses in this film: Patty Shepard and Alicia Moro, starred in another great Spanish horror film that same year:

"Slugs", directed by Juan Piquer. And there´s another actor in this film who starred in many Spanish horror films in the 70,s Jack Taylor.

This is a horror film you mustn´t ignore.

It´s a gem.
