This exciting , bizarre film contains tension , thriller, drama , mystery , plot twists and shocks
9 June 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Intelligent edition , modern scenarios and slick utilization of shock images make this one, a passable thriller plenty of killings . Techno-thriller-slasher with an original and ingeniously basic premise about a bunch of young amateurs participants (Tristán Ulloa , Pilar Punzano , Marian Aguilera , Andrés Gertrúdix , Juan Diaz) in chats begin a dangerous game full of suspense and intrigue , attracted by the suspicious personality of a surfer . It gives a terrifying and disturbingly youthful view of fears in which posses some elements of terror and risky suspense to figure out : Who's the killer ? . In one of these adventures , one of them dies . Soon they have reason to fear for their lives as it appears a serial killer committing a criminal spree , as the mysterious murderer is hunting them all down , then starts a nightmare of suspicion among them . The main starring (Pablo Echarri) seeks helplessly responses until he finds out the terrible true .

This picture displaying genuine chills , suspense , mystery and dark atmosphere and a twisted finale , being skillfully proceeded . This Argentina/Spain co-production results to be an acceptable film because of the thriller , tension , Kafkaesque suspense , as well as an interestingly written script concerning a complex intrigue in which our protagonists are in such extreme situation and their subsequent instinctive urges for survival . This computer-set thriller deals with a deadly game of cat-and-mouse in which video cameras capture everything , and the internet has turned into a cesspool of surveillance that's hundred times more horrifying than Leatherface's dugout . We immediately see that the story is going to be told from some unorthodox perspectives as each scene is broadcast through a window on a computer monitor . Despite its average budget the picture manages to be intelligent , intriguing and thrilling but also a little bit boring and hard to follow . The good thing about this film is that the director made it on a limited budget only having to do a few sets , yet the movie works on many levels but is constantly reconfigured . There is here in computers and laptops featuring a Webcam feed , even some action sequences and sexual scenes are showcased in this format . In spite of being technically a "Techno thriller", the film nods at everything from a technological world to Hitchcock to Giallo . The final result is an offbeat thriller that's captivating , in spite of not being all that fun or especially thoughtful , neither thought-provoking . It turned out to one of the most unusual Spanish thrilling movies of the 2.000s and certainly one of the most unsettling and even to beat to ¨Open Windows¨ . By that time , there have been realized several Spanish ¨Slashers¨ imitating to ¨Scream¨ saga , such as : ¨School killer¨ by Carlos Gil , ¨Tuno Negro¨ by Pedro L. Barbero , Vicente J. Martín , ¨Mas De Mil Camaras Velan Por Tu Seguridad¨ by David Alonso and ¨El Arte De Morir¨ by Alvaro Fernadez Armero at his the best .

"You Shouldn't Be Here" provides a spotless pictorial cinematography by Nestor Calvo who photographed successes as Atomica , Lobo , Nos Miran , Lobos De Washington , Años Barbaros , Miguel and William ; showing splendidly neighbourhood , parks , urbanization , library and Hospital ; Nestor photographs almost perfectly the elements of each shot , every sequence, every space . In addition , a thrilling as well as suspenseful musical score by Federico Jusid . The motion picture was original and innovately directed by Jacobo Rispa though enhancing the erotic scenes , almost Softcore , and including some flaws and gaps . Here Jacobo adapts to the times and find thriller/action/mystery in the ways people are living today . Filmmaker manages to not seem completely daft and he is attacking our vulnerability online by setting his Techno film entirely unsettling . This picture relatively cheap was tautly directed by Jacobo Rispa in his first movie , he subsequently would make TV movies .
