Storyline

Seattle, USA, 1999. At the demand of MEG, a camera crew investigates the strange course of events that brought STEVEN H., her boyfriend, to be hospitalized. Steven's condition is serious. His body has been severely lacerated by an unknown assailant. The doctors think it could be a wild animal, or maybe even a man with extremely long and hard nails. Steven is also suffering from a mysterious infection that spreads inside him at an alarming speed... The camera crew investigates on Steven's past weeks, hoping to find the truth and learn what really happened to him. Steven was doing historical research on trading between Mexico and the US, and had focused his work on a man called Balmaseda, a prosperous Mexican businessman who disappeared in 1932. This apparently innocuous research led Steven to a much darker discovery... Everything seems to revolve around a group of mysterious characters, all members of a satanic sect : The Black Door. Balmaseda was one of them. The mystery is about to ... Written by Anonymous

A chillingly realistic satanic ritual.
17 October 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at late night screening in Sitges and once again on DVD. The treatment is that of a documentary/investigation with the crew trying to figure out what happened to a student who obviously stumbled on a sect while doing some research. The film coldly brings out the details of the story with a feeling of gloom and impending doom that is all the more touching that it remains at a human level. There are some lengths in the pace and the general feeling is a bit rough, but what remains is the bone chilling images of a satanic ritual that is at the heart of the story and has an extremely realistic and convincing feel. This part is finely directed in a frightening clinical and voyeuristic way justified by the story. It puts audiences in the position of witnesses of a ritual sacrifice, and uncomfortable position at best and reminds of some gut wrenching historical documents of war or execution, with their no nonsense, non fiction way of showing death with no concern for dramatization as it must be an "objective" report of a dreadful event. If only for the shock this sequence creates when it appears, and reactions of the audiences at the screening were evidence to that sudden change of mood and impact, this film is worth watching.
