Storyline

The mutilated body of a six year old girl is found in a water hole. The girl is identified as the missing daughter of Claudia. However, only two peices of evidence could be used to identify her; a bracelet with her name on it near the crime scene, and the fact that her right leg was three inches longer than her left. All other methods of identification were removed from her body. Five years later Claudia, now addicted to tranquilizers, receives a phone call from someone claiming to be her daughter, asking for her mother to come find her before 'they' kill her. Other mysterious clues show up, further indicating that Claudia's daughter is indeed still alive, and very much in danger. Claudia, a run-down ex-cop, and a parapsychology reporter put together the clues to discover Angela's whereabouts. Written by Kerryn Wedgwood

Very very scary...
22 July 2002 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Rented this film with no expectations at all. For the largest part of the film I did not regret one second to have rented it. Well, perhaps because it was too scary... The way it is filmed and the music along with it makes it a very good thriller. This is a perfect example I believe of the difference between an American film and a European film. And in this case I definitely prefer the latter. The grim atmosphere and the constant pressure keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole movie. But unfortunately, all good things come to an end and in Los sin nombre, this is before the end of the film. I can't spoil anything of course, but I personally was very disappointed with the end of this film. It left me with an unsatisfied feeling.
