Good effort from ultra-low budget Horror cinema from Mèxico.
Fairly well done chiller that has the occasional good acting specially but Alejandro Camacho, Sergio Jimenez, and the sexy and beautiful Daniela Castro.
Sergio Jimènez is an extremely over-protective uncle who ha strange manners and strict education methods. He's extrmely jealous when Castro's character starts to go out with Camacho (the limo driver). She quickyly falls for him and that just angers the mad uncle.
This uncle has strange activities like having corpses on his basement and even obligates Castro to touch them and watch them closely.
Castro can't take this longer anymore and seeks aid in Camacho who will do everything in order to let her get out of the uncle's big house. But the uncle gets mad big time mainly because of ghosts and spirits according to him. He's extremely obsessed with dead. So you get the idea. The uncle wants Castro to veil him for two days after his death but Castro freaks out which leads him to lock her in some sort of dungeon. There, one of the corpses comes to life and we get a chilling scene. Nice effort. Well she manages to escape and ends up falling into an abysm... well, a crypt from the graveyard. Then she escapes. Cool Evil-Dead style make-up in that scene. Well then the movie gets somehow dull but still is done in a nice manner. Jimènez is a truly talented actor that even shines on low budget.
The scenes were meant to be intense and thrilling but the truth is that the extremely low budget couldn't provide quality in the important scenes. The lightning is somehow cheap and does not deliver on dark settings or atmosphere. The acting is somehow good specially by Castro who keeps screaming, moaning in fear, and crying.
Some scenes are done with a special effort but aren't enough to convince the audience.
Don't get me wrong but it seems that the movie was shot on a handy cam. To be honest, it looks like a recorded heressy.
