Shocking and disturbing with a smart twist
24 May 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is not just the classic slasher film. It's something more. A lot more. Usually, you don't have the chance to watch an horror movie where the victims and the murderer(s) have real motivation to do what they do. This is not the case. In "Rooms for tourists" there's a twist, one of those twists that leaves you thinking: "Awesome". This is the reversal of the typical film from Argentina. It shows an Argentina where not too many tourists would like to go.

I had the chance to get this at one screening in Madrid and i was wondering how doesn't anybody comment this film before. Of course, it's low budget and even Black and white but i'm sure it'll blow your mind.
