Storyline

A woman sees her best friend murdered before her eyes, and thus becomes very traumatised. Her husband tells her to stay at home, where she discovers a little gris-gris bag. She opens the bag, without knowing it's magical origin and smells a powder. She begins investigating and discovers a strange address: "Academia #10". She then goes there and meets a witch, who warns her of the dangers of the powder she smell and the dark powers of voodoo. She then meets a psychologist, who becomes interested in her case and the black magic surrounding her. When a mysterious black man appears, and strange things begin to happen, her life turns into a race against time and against a powerful voodoo deity. Written by Marcos Villasenor

intelligent, suspenseful, beautiful
6 October 2000 | by (New Haven, CT) – See all my reviews

excellent film making. Very effective interweaving of psychological and supernatural effects that keep you wondering about what is really going on. Very strong, intelligent visual style. Only the very best quality films, like this one, can keep you engrossed through long sequences with no dialogue with only the power of images, thrilling you without any gore whatsoever. none. the subjective camera angles produce such a feeling of terror and uncertainty, you don't need any gore. The main actress gives a great performance. I would rank this up with Cronos, but Cronos is more unique, "fantastical" and bloodier. But the same level of excellent film making.
