Forgotten Slasher Gem
13 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of this before, probably because it was a Spanish production and may not have had a broad release... It borrows so much from other films but still remains enjoyable. At times its seems laughable but at others the action is gruesome and engrossing. There are characters you love to hate, campy dialog, deplorable acting and funny voice overs, but some quality effects, good sound design and locations...its like an 80s time capsule that's so bad its good. The pacing and cinematography was far better than most. Great if not cringe-worthy midnight movie and overall worth seeking out for any fan of the genre.
