Spooky and creepy Spanish film with international cast
The movie centers about a family living outskirts Barcelona and the terrible events that happen to the daughter (Anna Paquin) and the rest of family: father(Iain Glenn),mother(Lena Olin)and grandfather(Giancarlo Giannini).
The motion picture gets a certain likeness to films as ¨Amytiville¨ saga and the recent ¨The others¨and ¨6º sense¨ , the director Jaume Balaguero takes parts each other films. In the movie there are terror, suspense,drama and since the beginning until ending the horror and tension is endless. The argument picture is pretty twisted and the final has an extraordinary surprise.
Interpretation by Anna Paquin as scared adolescent is average, she's very young and lack her experience, better play her grandfather and parents : Giancarlo Giannini, Lena Olin and Iain Glenn, both of whom are riveting. The film is produced by Julio Fernandez of Fantastic Factory, corporation with deal of hits in terror genre.
Balaguero direction is outstanding, Xavi Gimenez cinematography with lights and shades originates a frightening and scary atmosphere and Carlos Cases music creates true fear.
The flick will appeal to ghostly atmosphere enthusiasts and horror genre fans. Rating: 6,5/10 good
