For a moment, before seeing you, I wanted to be dead.
25 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best takes I have heard on this film goes like this: "It's like if Rob Zombie got religion and decided to take on Goethe and Marlow and delve the deeper meaning of God the Devil and the Soul while listening to lots of industrial goth techno dance music." This sums up the film nicely for those familiar with Zombie. It is a thinking man's (or woman's) horror. It give the selling your soul story and interesting twist.

Miguel Ángel Solá (The Whore and the Whale) is brilliant as the title character, an oncologist that doesn't seem to care about the patients he serves. Eduard Fernández (Che: Part 2, and the impossible to find, Alatriste) is fascinating as the devil.

It gets gory, and it it seems a mess at times, but I couldn't take my eyes away. It was a great story.
