Russ Tamblyn excels in comedic part!
19 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The version reviewed here is the Spanish language one.When you 1st watch this movie your reaction is, "it's pretty bad, but Tamblyn is funny". Then for some reason you watch it for a 2nd & 3rd time. You start to think, is this one of those so bad it's good films. By the 4th viewing you realize that you have been looking at this movie all wrong. It's more of a drama within a horror story. And with that perspective the film becomes better appreciated. Central to the plot line are traumatic events that took place in Karen's childhood and how they have translated into nightmares in her adulthood. Jaime Garza, listed as James Garnett in the English language version, plays Ricardo and brings elements from the crime genre into the story as well. Alfred Gutierrez who also had a small part in the horror film Vacaciones de Terror 2, here plays a drunk. Superstar Mário Almada who is not new to horror films, having also appeared in Ladrones de Tumbas some years later, also has a cameo. Fans of the knights Templar films may see some similarities in this film as well. But the best asset this film has is Russ Tamblyn. He has a very funny role and plays it to the hilt. Repeated viewings will still produce laughs.
